    Now that you're officially a Catholic, you are probably wondering, "Now what?"  Shaun McAfee has been where you are. As a convert, he worried that he might not be a "good Catholic." He wanted to take part in the sacraments, really prepare for Mass, learn how to defend and even share his faith, and understand certain Catholic devotions. Yet he wasn't sure how to do any of this, or where to look for answers once RCIA was finished.

    We've put together a great Pro-life package that will give your parish group everything they need to go out and stand up for life - and at a very special price! Here's what you'll get:      20 copies of Persuasive Pro-Life: Drawing on over a decade as a pro-life organizer, Horn helps you cut through the diversions and obfuscations of the “pro-choice” side in order to accurately frame the legal, historical, and medical issue surrounding abortion. Then he demonstrates—with vivid personal examples from his years of campus activism—the importance of being charitable in all abortion debates, no matter how strident the other side might be. We must be not just warriors for the pro-life cause, he says, but ambassadors for it.With a little knowledge and a few proven techniques, you can become a bold and effective apologist for life.      A copy of the DVD Making the Case for Life: No matter how hard you try, talking with your friends and family about abortion too often winds up at one extreme or the other—either tempers and emotions get out of hand or to keep the peace you agree to disagree and move on to another subject.

In his DVD, Making the Case for Life, he shows you how to avoid those extremes, presenting a roadmap for talking about abortion that really gets people engaged on the gravest moral question of our age.Using field-tested techniques honed through thousands of encounters in college pro-life ministry, Trent shares practical tips for persuading others to recognize the unborn’s fundamental right to life.         100 copies of 20 Answers: Abortion: 20 Answers: Abortion will deepen your understanding of this critical moral issue, and give you the knowledge you need to explain it to others.

    Home. It is an elegant word, at once both simple and far-reaching. Home is a place to live in and feel comfortable, but it is much more than that.

Home is where we are nurtured, where we live, and where we love. The language of Home is universal. It is where we find the eternal in the everyday.

But the Home has been neglected. To millions of women today, there is nothing worse than being a “homemaker.” If only they knew the supreme value (and reward) of giving loved ones a place to call Home.   

Written by three wives and mothers, Theology of Home is a simple guide to help reorient all of us toward our true home, allowing us to think purposefully about how to make our own homes on earth better equipped to get all those living in them to the Father’s house.

Featuring more than 100 beautiful (and inspiring) photographs from homes around the country, profound words from the saints and other literary figures, and in depth commentary on the theological and spiritual underpinnings of our love for Home, Theology of Home offers readers a tour of the both the Home and the human heart.

Whether you live in a sprawling estate or a humble dwelling, whether alone or with a crowd, this is far more than a book of beautiful photos and great décor ideas. You will also learn how to create a deeper sense of the divine through:

    Creating a welcoming environment that starts with your Door
    Fostering a sense of remembrance through images, scents, and activities that will keep your family recollecting joy, family, and Christ
    Making your home a place for joyful gatherings and spiritual growth through an emphasis on light
    Prioritizing family dinners to feed the body and the soul
    Opening up your Home to those around you, spreading the joy and peace of Christ with your hospitality
    And much more. . .

Discover how beauty and order can bring the eternal to your everyday, and help create a path to heaven for those you love most dearly.

    In What Really Happens After We Die professor of Church history Dr. James Papandrea gathers in one place all that is known about the afterlife — drawn from the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, the Church Fathers, and the Church’s Magisterium — affording, for the first time ever, a complete, authoritative, detailed portrait of the state of souls after death and the realms we enter.

The following are among the many questions he answers:

    If, as St. Paul says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God,” how can our bodies enter Heaven?
    After death but before the final resurrection, are we simply unconscious?
    What is our resurrection like? (And does it differ from Jesus’ Resurrection?)
    Are ghosts real? (You’ll be surprised at what the Church Fathers have to say.)
    What is the difference between Heaven and Paradise?
    Which of our parts will accompany us to Heaven (and which must be left behind)?
    In Heaven, do we still eat and drink?
    If, as Jesus says, there’s no marrying in heaven, are we still male and female there?
    After our resurrection, will we, like Jesus, be able to pass through matter?
    And many more fascinating questions answered!

    Biography of Sister Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart.

Sister Lucia was a prominent figure of the Portuguese Catholic world of the 20th Century. As the Shepherdess of Fatima who, together with Francisco and Jacinta saw our Lady in 1917, she is regarded as a child blessed and chosen to spread the message of peace and salvation of God throughout the world.

As a Carmelite nun, she was known as as a privileged person dedicated to God and in service to His Church, one in whom people placed enormous confidence because of her role as Our Lady's confident. The contemporary history of the Church would hardly be complete without the inclusion of Sister Lucia's role.

The references to the Holy Father and to his sufferings since the apparitions, as well as the revelation of the third part of the Secret of Fatima and the dramatic events experienced by the Church in the late second and early third millennium do not allow us to ignore Sister Lucia. Reading the biography, A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, gives us a broader perspective of Sister Lucia's personality.
