Is it a Baby or just some cells?

Is it a Baby or just some cells? - the testimony of a nurse practitioner by Cortney Davis RN, MA, ANP

Is it a Baby? follows the true story of a nurse practitioner working in a women’s health clinic which refers women for abortion. While originally not participating in abortion at all, Cortney Davis’ work slowly draws her closer and closer to abortion—as she rationalizes her increased involvement all the way, even to the point of participating in one. Yet her conscience will not free her as God keeps sending her messages that she cannot ignore.

This powerful witness for life, accurate in its medical descriptions and emotions, should be read by everyone.

The Penny Catechism ... revised!

The Mini-Catechism Revised and Edited by Brother Charles Madden OFM Conv.

388 Questions and Answers on the Catholic Faith. A revision of the Penny Catechism based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church with a new imprimatur

The Penny Catechism was consulted by GK Chesterton as he prepared to enter the Church-and by countless thousands of others over the years.

Originally approved by the Archbishops of England and Wales, The Penny Catechism has now been revised in light of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, American edition, issued in 1994.

Most of the revisions are in the form of additional questions and answers, especially in those sections concerning Divine Revelation and the Sacraments. Some revisions were made to conform to the terminology used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Others are simply changes to American terminology from the British terminology of earlier editions of The Penny Catechism.

This is a perfect book for missionary work, prison ministry, and apologetics. The classic question and answer format is a great way to learn Catholic doctrine. This is an official catechism with new imprimatur.

The Mini-Catechism is a concise summary of Catholic doctrine, fitting neatly in purse or pocket.

Brother Charles Madden, OFM Conv. was born in Baltimore, MD in January 1940, the youngest of eleven children. He is the author of “Freemasonry: Mankind’s Hidden Enemy” (TAN), “Giving Up Stealing for Lent and other family stories” (Requiem Press) and has written numerous articles over a 30-year period for Immaculata Magazine.

Standing with Peter

by William E. May

Here's what they're saying:

Dr. William May for many years has been one of our most important moral theologians... Standing With Peter is a fascinating memoir of a lifetime of scholarship in action–a warmly human account told with Dr. May’s famous gusto, integrity, and passionate commitment to the truth. It’s a joy to read.Russell Shaw (author Catholic Laity in the Mission of the Church)

Dr. Bill May, perhaps America’s most outstanding moral theologian of the twentieth century, has written a memoir of his personal and professional life that forms an important part of the developing history of the pre- and post Vatican II era in the Church in the US. ... There is no one better to tell the inside story particularly surrounding the events of that pivotal year 1968 and also of his role and charge of heart and mind. –Rev C. J. McCloskey III, Research Fellow, Faith and Reason Institute, Washington DC

In 1968, William May signed a document dissenting from Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae vitae, in which the Pope reaffirmed the Church’s teaching against artificial birth control. In Dr. May’s own words, “Signing this document was on my part a cowardly deed.” But God, in his providence, used this mistake to launch the career of one of the Church’s outstanding moral theologians-who now ‘stands with Peter’ on Humanae vitae. This is his story.

In these reflections, Dr. May takes us from his early years in the seminary, the illness which precluded his ordination, his first career as a book editor, the cataclysmic events of 1968-especially those surrounding Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae, and finally his academic career at Catholic University of America and the John Paul II Institute.

With personal anecdotes, humor and humility, William May shows how God takes care of us and has plan for each of us; how God in his providence can bring good from our mistakes, if we are willing to co-operate with his grace. Dr. May also illuminates the errors of moral relativism and other questionable theological “innovations” so fashionable in recent decades.
