How Much Faith and Devotion Do We Have?

I ran across this great video series and found it to be quite helpful in analyzing the spiritual life. Father Agnellus has a true gift of explaining the Catholic faith, and gives great advice on how we can make our lives more pleasing to God and unite ourselves to Him.

Book Recommendation: Topics on Tradition



If you are looking for a good read this Christmas season, Father Chad Ripperger's book, 'Topics on Tradition' is a good choice. In 200 pages he covers Tradition in the Church and some of the problems we face today. In the first part of the book he covers the history of Tradition in the Church and then explains how we understand Tradition according to the Magisterium. The second part of the book will interest those who want to understand the essential differences between the old Mass and the Novus Ordo. He goes into the differences concerning the extrinsic characteristics of the Mass and their merits, such as the holiness of the Church, the holiness of the priest, both within the celebration of the Mass and outside of it, the holiness of the laity, the decora of the church, and finally the ritual itself. These merits are extremely important in how successfully the Church carries out its mission in the world. Below is the table of contents. Enjoy!

Concerning the Consecration of Russia

If you can read these two books and watch the video below, and still think that the consecration of Russia was done, as asked by Our Lady of Fatima, then you are disconnected from reality! The first book below by John Salza and Robert Sungenis gives documented proof that the consecration was not done, despite the false claims of Bertone. The second book and video shown below, prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that communism is alive and well. Russia is still spreading its errors across the globe as Our Lady said it would, until the consecration was done. It is very obvious that the global peace and conversion of Russia to Catholicism has not happened since the alleged consecration of 1984. In fact, the errors of communism are spreading faster and more vigorously than ever before. You can purchase The Consecration of Russia, here and you can get the Disinformation book and video here. We need to start praying for the consecration to be done!

This documentary is worth a watch, and the companion book is also worth reading.
