Two heavenly bodies will collide with much noise and light. It will be a Day of Thunder. A great darkness will fall over the whole earth. All mankind throughout the world will see in the sky the sign coming from the East, a bright Cross, with Jesus hanging on the Cross and rays of light falling from His wounds and Heart down on mankind. Jesus will be bleeding with drops of His blood falling upon the earth. At the moment when the two heavenly bodies collide, every man, woman and child throughout the world will see his or her own conscience. We will see everything wrong we are doing, and the good we are not doing. All will experience the burning fire of the Holy Spirit’s love, leading and guidance. We will know where we stand with God and whether, if we were to die at that moment, we would spend our eternity in Heaven or in Hell.

Product DescriptionWhen Idaho legislator Curtis Bowers wrote a “letter to the editor” about the drastic changes in America’s culture, it became the feature story on the evening news, people protested at the capitol and for weeks the local newspapers were filled with responses. He realized then… he’d hit on something.
Ask almost anyone and you’ll hear, “Communism is dead! The Berlin Wall came down.” And though the word communism isn’t used anymore, this film will show the ideas behind it are alive and well.

She was taking shelter from a storm with her nephew, when both of them were struck by lightning.

Product DescriptionIs America under judgment for turning away from God as ancient Israel did?
That is the provocative question addressed by this video documentary produced by WND’s Joseph Farah, edited and directed by award-winning filmmaker George Escobar and featuring messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future.”
Cahn reveals what he calls “an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future and the collapse of the global economy.”
“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, he says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version), what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today. The two-hour, two-DVD documentary is based on shocking research by Cahn, who heads the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J. he suggests an otherwise obscure passage in the Book of Isaiah is since Sept. 11, 2001, being uncannily re-enacted in the U.S. just the way it originally played out in the time of the great prophet of Israel leading to the nation’s captivity and dispersions.

Product DescriptionThe Stigmatist is a novel of religious mysticism and international intrigue. At the outset, American pilgrims at an apparition site in Spain are caught up in frightening visions of how they stand with God-a warning calling them to amend their ways. Fr. Anthony Santorelli, an American priest sent by the Vatican to investigate, returns with a message for the Pope which foreshadows the spread of the "warning" visions, and a series of dire events. To authenticate his role as a messenger and prophet, the priest is mystically marked with bloody stigmata in his hands, feet and side, replicating the five wounds of Christ on the Cross. Fr. Santorelli persuades the Pope to endorse the visions as sent by God to provide a time of grace for repentance, and they spread inexorably from country to country, among Christians and Jews. The Pope's approval of the warning visions provokes European Union bureaucrats, who have long resented the Holy See's resistance to their secular agenda, and its efforts to preserve the "Christian identity" of Europe. They turn the force of EU sanctions against the tiny nation-state. High level clerics in the Vatican who have been disturbed by the visions seize on the EU's action as an excuse to attempt to remove the Pope. (The novel, published in 2010, includes an account of Vatican infighting and an international conspiracy of Cardinals to oust Pope Benedict XVI, and foretells an untimely end to his papacy. Life imitated the novel's art on March 5, 2013, in the incident headlined: "Cardinal imposter caught sneaking into Vatican enclave.") And deadly opposition comes from the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, who regards the Roman Catholic Church as the main opponent of the spread of Islam over the centuries. He persuades himself that the Church is responsible for sending the visions and that the Vatican must be destroyed before it can generate visions that proselytize Muslims. One terrorist plot leads to another, and conflicts spin out of control in a number of countries. The Stigmatist is the story of Fr. Santorelli's very human struggle to accept and fulfill his painful mystical calling while he is being drawn by God into Vatican plots, international intrigues, terrorist acts, and nuclear war.

Product DescriptionElected in one of the shortest conclaves in history, the former Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina reveals, in a series of extensive interviews conducted over the course of two years, the very image of a humble priest, inspired teacher, and wise and adroit cardinal. What emerges is a portrait of a man more interested in substance over style, a compassionate cleric and teacher who has shunned the spotlight. In spontaneous, intimate terms, Archbishop Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, covers topics as wide-ranging as his childhood, family life, and the importance of his first job to discovering his calling and his early days in the seminary. The former archbishop was a teacher of psychology and literature until John Paul II consecrated him as a cardinal. He befriended writers like Jorge Luis Borges and cites Homer, Cervantes, and German and Italian poets with ease and offers nuanced thoughts about teaching. Thoughtful, intelligent, and even witty, he names Babette's Feast as his favorite movie and Marc Chagall as his favorite painter.
A learned and introspective man, he does not avoid the uncomfortable subjects: the declining numbers of priests and nuns; celibacy; the sexual abuse scandals that have rocked the Church; and his opinions about and experience with the military dictatorship of his own crisis-riddled country. It also discusses the incredible role he played in the last conclave, where he is said to have been tied with Ratzinger in the second of three votes, and asked that the votes for him be transferred to Ratzinger.
Through his own words, we come to know a man whose actions and words reflect his deeply-rooted humility. The book concludes with the Pope's own writings and reflections, full of wisdom and inspiration.

Product DescriptionDolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life, with co-author and life-long friend, Richard DeNeut.
Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy.

Born Dolores Hicks to a complicated and colorful Chicago family, Mother Dolores has travelled a charmed yet challenging road in her journey toward God, serenity and, yes, love. She entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the "ear of the heart". While contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.

From the anvil of compulsory schooling to media and entertainment, we are kept in perpetual bondage to the ideas that shape our actions.

Product Description“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." – Joel 2:31
From the beginning, in Genesis, God declared He specifically created the sun and the moon to be used for signs. These heavenly bodies would be used as signals of coming dramatic historical events when the Creator of the universe would intersect with human history. But how do we unlock the code to interpret the signals?
The key is found in the riveting new book "Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs" by Pastor Mark Biltz. In 2007 Biltz first discovered the correlation between blood moons that fell on feast days and key historical world events. He found the divine link between prophecy, heavenly signs and historical events, and what has happened when they intersect.
When Biltz saw an incredible lunar eclipse over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, he began to understand the significance heavenly signs play in deciphering prophecy. In "Blood Moons" he explains the importance of heavenly signs, the feasts of the Lord, keeping to the biblical calendar and being prepared for the coming Day of the Lord. He predicts that something imminent is on the horizon, that God is about to move mightily in the world.

Product DescriptionDiabolical Or Psychological: The Differentiation Of Psychological Diseases From Diabolical Disorders
Exorcists have written books with scary narratives detailing multiple examples of demonic activities. Sometimes they also explain how this happens and how one can diagnose the activities. However, there have been no books and no manuals by a mental health clinician or a doctor that explain the phenomenon from a scientific perspective and how it should be treated.
Dr. Acosta’s book, DIABOLICAL OR PSYCHOLOGICAL, is such a resource manual that interested persons, mental health professionals, physicians, especially psychiatrists, nurses, the clergy and persons involved in pastoral care, will find very helpful.
Most importantly, it will be welcomed by those vexed by Satan and his demons, for it will empower people in the position to help with the knowledge of how to handle the situation and provide proper care, rather than backing away out of fear or ignorance.
A comprehensive guide to discerning the psychological and the spiritual elements of psychiatric disease and possession has long been missing from religious and mental health literature – this book serves as just such a guide.
Product DescriptionSaint Peter tells the epic story about the key event in European and World history, the spread of Christianity throughout the Roman Empire, focusing on the leader of that new religion. St. Peter is played by the renowned Egyptian actor, Omar Sharif (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago).The film illustrates the strong reaction of Romans and Jews from a political and religious standpoint, and it also deals with the immense obstacles Christianity found along its path in the early stages of its development.
As a dedicated follower of Christ, Peter spreads the message of the Gospel across the land, often staying only one step ahead of those determined to persecute him. As the tension between the Christians and the Romans grows, blood runs in the streets. Peter and Paul meet and together they form a strong friendship in preaching about Christ.
While fleeing persecution in the Eternal City, Peter sees Jesus walking toward him saying, "Peter, I am coming to Rome, to be crucified again." Peter realizes he must follow Christ to the end, and returns to Rome to be crucified like his master.
Product DescriptionThis work explores some of the most interesting and vexing problems in contemporary life. Appealing to reason rather than religious authority, the book tackles the most controversial and talked about positions of the Catholic Church - on contraception, on marriage, on reproductive technologies, on cohabitation, and on divorce - arguing for the reasonableness of the Church's views on these issues.
The book's interdisciplinary approach, following the precedent of Thomas Aquinas, looks to human happiness and fulfillment, properly understood, in seeking the answers to questions about how to live. It aims to show to skeptical readers that what the Catholic Church teaches about controversial issues is rationally justified by considering evidence from psychology, sociology, and philosophy.
The foundation of Kaczor's approach is happiness. We all want to be happy. Every day, in whatever we do, we seek this goal. But what exactly is happiness? And how can we find it? The saints and psychologists agree: there can be no real happiness without authentic love-erotic love, friendship love, and self-giving love (agape).
From this foundation of happiness Kaczor explores the nature of marriage, and the love they promise to each other, which is agape, a selfgiving love that is the choice to do good for the other. He also examines alternatives to covenant marriage, such as polygamy and samesex marriage, as well as cohabitation.
Finally the book explores the value of children. To make sense of Catholic teaching on contraception, he says that we must first reconsider the value of fertility and having children. Only in this perspective, can one begin to understand what the Church teaches.
Product DescriptionVinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.
The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament -beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it's presented properly. For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."
In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.
Product DescriptionImmaculée Ilibagiza believes that praying the rosary spared her from being slaughtered during the horrific 1994 Rwanda genocide, in which her family and more than a million other innocent men, women, and children were brutally murdered.
Nearly two decades later, Immaculée continues to pray the rosary every day and marvels at how she is constantly renewed and richly rewarded by rejoicing in this glorious prayer. It has helped her in every aspect of her life, from literally saving her life to strengthening her faith, easing sorrows, changing heartache into happiness, healing illnesses in herself and others, solving family problems, landing a dream job, finding long-lost friends, and even locating lost keys! She received so many blessings from the rosary, in fact, that she decided to study its history and origins.
She soon discovered that it was not just meant for Catholics, but that the Virgin Mary promised a life filled with blessings to everyone from any religion who faithfully recited the rosary daily . . . and this was such wonderful news that she vowed to share it with as many people as she could.
In The Rosary: The Prayer That Saved My Life, Immaculée reveals how the rosary’s many blessings can be reaped by each and every one of us. In this moving and uplifting book, the New York Times bestselling author recounts her personal experience of discovering the power and the beauty of the ancient beads—and shows all of us how to enrich our own lives by exploring and embracing the mysteries, secrets, and promises of the prayer that became her “lifeline to heaven.”

Product DescriptionWritten by Felix Carroll, Loved, Lost, Found is a collection of beautiful stories of everyday people who discover God's extraordinary mercy. They include a former abortionist, a blind man, an unfaithful husband, a rape victim, a prisoner, a former "workaholic," and a survivor of the "Miracle on the Hudson" plane crash, among others.
The book begins with a story about Maureen Digan, whose miraculous healing in 1981 led to the beatification of Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska.

Product DescriptionIntroduced by Blessed Pope John Paul II, then championed by his successor, Pope Benedict XVI, the “New Evangelization” continues to be a concept urgently advocated by Pope Francis. But while the term has been around for years, many people still don’t know what it entails, exactly.
In his new book The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call, Ralph Martin, president of Renewal Ministries, an organization devoted to Catholic renewal and evangelization, gives the faithful a breakdown of what it is, how to engage in it, and why it is to crucial to every Christian right now.
“Not just a churchy buzzword for priests and missionaries, the new evangelization is literally a matter of life or death for everyone in a person’s life,” says Martin. He lays out an easy-to-adapt method for sharing the reality of Christ and the Gospel – for non-believers as well as those no longer practicing the faith.
Product DescriptionWhat is joy? Ask ten different people and you'll get ten different answers.
Yet if you asked:
A man who grew up fatherless and destitute in the slums of Atlanta a young widow who decided to bring a neglected garden back to life in spite of agonizing physical pain and a deeply wounded spirit or author Dan Lord himself, ex-frontman for a popular indie rock band each would point to the one source of their joy: Jesus.
They made the choice for joy, against all odds, and so can you, though the obstacles might seem insurmountable. Worry and anxiety, pain and suffering, the daily grind -- all these and more can block your path. When faced with such challenges, is it possible to get past the barriers, let go, and experience God's joy?
When you look around, you might wonder -- although joy is a fruit of the Spirit, it doesn't seem to be hanging visibly from many Christian boughs. Choosing Joy aims to change that -- and change your life in the process -- as it helps you discover the key to this most attractive but seemingly elusive gift.
Choosing Joy will help you overcome the obstacles and focus your heart, mind and strength on God so that you can receive the happiness and peace that the world cannot give.
