The Church

The Greatest Philosopher Who Ever Lived
Peter Kreeft

Kreeft not only unpacks the thought and spirit of Mary as we know her through Scripture and Church doctrine, but offers a heartfelt crash course in the basics of philosophy—methodology, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, cosmology, ethics, politics, aesthetics, and more—all through the lens of the Mother of God.

Padre Pio
Stories and Memories of My Mentor and Friend
Father Gabriele Amorth

A unique portrait of a great modern saint by the well-known exorcist, close friend and spiritual son of Padre Pio. Read many unknown, intriguing stories about the beloved Padre fromAmorth’s own memories and encounters.  We learn how a young Padre Pio cured himself of a childhood disease by wolfing down all his mother’s fried bell peppers. We sense what it was like to go to confession with the friar, famous not only for reading consciences, but for his blunt, slap-like remarks to hardened penitents: “When are you going to quit being such a pig?” We hear first-hand accounts of his miracles, of his stigmata, of his long, moving Masses.
