First Saturday

“Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion (the First Saturdays), along with the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven”.
– Sister Lucia, 19th March 1939.

British History - An Illustrated Guide

For many years historians and academics have bemoaned the nation’s woeful lack of historical knowledge. This history reference book has been written by Catholic author Hugh Williams to try to address that problem:
Its attractive cover and design draws the reader in. Written in nine easy steps, it makes the subject far less daunting than many other history books. With over 200 illustrations (mainly in colour) it brings vivid life to the subject of British history.
Clearly labelled throughout, using bullet point style, one can find what one is looking for with ease.
It also has an extensive index (over 3,000 lines).
Contents:
Step 1 – Before the coming of the Romans
Step 2 – From the Romans to the Norman Invasion
Step 3 – Norman History
Step 4 – Plantagenet History
Step 5 – The Houses of Lancaster and York
Step 6 – Tudor History
Step 7 – Stuart History
Step 8 – Hanoverian History
Step 9 – The House of Windsor
Appendices – Kings and Queens, Prime Ministers etc.
Great for homeschooling and for supplementing schoolwork, as well as being of interest to anyone with an interest in British history.
Count Nikolai Tolstoy, historian and author writes of it, "This book provides an admirable guide to British history, ideal for checking facts or browsing and enlivened by well-chosen plates. Attractive and informative, and deserves to be widely read".

Vitally Important New Book - Don't Miss Out!

Don't miss out on this vitally important and brilliant new book that needs to be read and digested by everyone who values family and children and society.
"The Enlightenment and Marxist vision reached its logical conclusion in the twentieth century. If children are no longer the children of someone but an asset of everyone, the State can, or even must, assume the task of educating them. National Socialism and Communism both implemented this terrible folly as widely as possible, taking children away from their families for long periods with state schools, parades, ceremonies and youth institutions all helping make children assets of the State.
These state assets could 'naturally' be sterilised, selected, experimented with, expropriated...... both in National Socialist Germany and in Bolshevik Russia. This was indeed 'real Socialism' . The Stalinist Preobrazhensky wrote: "From the socialist point of view it makes no sense that a member of society considers his own body private property because the individual is but a passing point between the past and the future," so that to society belongs "the total and unconditional right to intervene with its rules into even an individuals sex life, to improve the race by natural selection".
Turning to more current events, it is essential to remember that in the cultural narrative of the student protest movements of 1968, the family was viewed as an oppressive institution that should be defeated, a 'gas chamber', a suffocating cage, a cultural curse and unnatural.
These anti-family ideological trends helped shape the climate in which the laws which legalised divorce and abortion were introduced. Thereby, the family is no longer indissoluble. Love is not forever and children no longer have the security of two parents. At the same time, parents are no longer faithful to the love of their child but instead they can choose to kill it, disposing of it with methods which, although commonplace, are unbelievably brutal.
But even this is not enough. If the family is something that is not natural but merely the cultural expression of an economic relationship, there are no limits to it being changed and dismantled. It is necessary, using a term of the great speculator George Soros, but also of the new global world, "to open up" the family as much as possible, then unhinge it as much as possible. Hence not merely multiple genders for individuals but also all the new possible 'families' that lie ahead for modern man, thanks to bio-technology, which is the force to destroy the family completely".

The Attack on the Family and the European Response

“Never has the institution of the family been put in such jeopardy as it is today. Wars, tyrannical rulers and the reducing of entire peoples into slavery, although never absent from history, have damaged or even destroyed individual families, but the institution itself had never been touched.”

Until now, when the cultural Marxists have made the demolition of the Family a key part of their long war against Christian civilisation and European identity.

This important new work from ProVita in Italy exposes the origins and methods of this ruthless assault on traditional values and on the rights of parents and children. Written from a patriotic and Christian perspective, it highlights the anti-human agenda of the enemies of normality.

Thoroughly researched and referenced, it provides a wealth of facts which demolish the specious arguments employed by the propagandists of  'sexual liberation’, ‘gender theory’ and heterophobia.

It provides valuable insights into the deeply negative impact of the assault on the Family, on the physical and mental welfare both of children and on members of the very ‘minorities’ the left claim to champion.

Finally, it examines the positive steps now underway in various nations as the Christian and patriotic counter-revolution grows in strength and confidence.

The Green Pail: An Irish Tale

An elderly Irish couple attempt to come to terms with changes in modern western culture which they are convinced are by no means always good. And yet hope and goodness shine precisely in their fierce kindness and the values they find sorely tried.

"One hears the sea birds through the panes of small wind-cleaned windows, smells last night's supper as one noses around the books and bottles, avoids the creaky part of the wood floors lest one disturb the holy magic of morning, remains very still amidst the flow of silent smiles. Leo and Lena are the most intense couple in all of Ireland, but only they and we know it. I wanted a green pail of my own after reading of them.. It is enough, however, to have laughed and cried with them"

The Walls are Talking: Abortion Clinic Workers Tell Their Story

This book narrates the harrowing and life-changing experiences of former abortion clinic workers, including those of the author, who once directed abortion services at a large Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas, USA.
These individuals, whose names have been changed to protect their identities, left their jobs in the abortion industry after experiencing a change of heart. They have come forward with their stories, not for fame or notoriety, but to shed light on the reality of abortion. They want their stories to change the lives of others for the better.
These stories are difficult to read, because an abortion is an act of violence, harming not only the obvious victim the unborn child -- but also the mother, the father, the doctor, and everyone else involved. But these stories also offer hope, for they show that anyone, no matter what part the person has played in an abortion, can start anew, can make amends for past mistakes. They demonstrate that the first step on that journey is telling the truth, as these courageous individuals do in these pages.
"Those of us that have worked in the abortion industry all live our lives with a constant burden. We can't let our burden slide off of our shoulders; it is what keeps us on fire. It reminds us of why we fight so hard. We have seen death and evil in a way that most haven't and we participated. But we are forgiven. He who has been forgiven much, loves much. And we love a lot. I am eagerly awaiting the day when we can call all abortionists and clinic workers former and repentant abortion providers." - Abby Johnson
"Abby Johnson is one of the bravest women I know. Once she realized the truth, Abby had the courage to leave the abortion industry and become a powerful voice for the defenseless. She challenges us to face the truth about the abortion industry and its many victims." - Lila Rose, President, Live Action

The Curé d’Ars

Around 1830, the village of Ars began attracting huge crowds of visitors each day. 
Why did thousands of pilgrims come daily to this small village?
The pilgrims had no other purpose than to meet its parish priest and especially to have him hear their confession. For this, they waited for hours, sometimes all night! His exceptional holiness and numerous miracles irresistibly attracted men and women of all ages and walks of life in search of the truth. 
This priest was Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney. He lived in extreme austerity and he made his village a fervent and exemplary community. Long before his death in 1859 he was the most famous priest in France. He is now considered the Patron and exemplar of priests worldwide.
This classic and comprehensive biography written by Abbé Francis Trochu reveals how Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney overcame numerous obstacles to becoming a priest. He exercised intense simplicity, humility and pastoral zeal to help him transform a miserable village disaffected with religion into a town attracting thousands of pilgrims a year. Canonized in 1925 by Pope Pius XI.

The Guild State: Its Principles and Possibilities

The mediaeval Guild is deconstructed into political theory and social commentary in this contemporary look by G.R.S. Taylor at one of the most important social institutions of the Middle Ages. 

Essential principles and values underlying the Guild System are discussed with a view toward applying them to current societal ills such as unemployment, absentee corporate ownership, and employee disenfranchisement.

The system, adapted to the needs and circumstances of the 21st century, is discussed as a serious economic alternative to the disasters of Capitalism and Socialism; indeed, this book proposes it to be the only useful system because of its successful past.

Neo-Conned and Neo-Conned Again!

Neo-Conned!: Just War Principles: A Condemnation of War in Iraq

Refuting the myth that America's socially conservative thinkers, journalists, and commentators tended to support the war in Iraq, this book incorporates the opinions of some of the leading figures in America's conservative movement on why the decision to go to war and the continuing occupation of Iraq was and is the wrong course of action.
Twenty-five articles by influential thinkers such as former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, syndicated columnists Sam Francis, Joseph Sobran, Eric Margolis, and Charley Reese, leading economist Jude Wanniski, social critics Tom Fleming and Paul Gottfried, and religious figures Bishop John Michael Botean and the late Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani make the case against the Iraqi conflict using conservative arguments on geopolitics, Christian morality, and common sense. Four detailed appendices on the war teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are also provided.
"The essays in these volumes, ranging from the best minds of the liberal left to the great wisdom of the orthodox right, take on the war in Iraq, closely examining the ideas and motives of its planners, promoters and defenders. Here is genuine intellectual diversity and hard analysis--fascinating and required reading." --David Allen White, professor of English, U.S. Naval Academy.
"This trenchant collection of articles about the U.S. war in the Middle East is a fulfillment of my dearest wish: seeing the left-wing and the right-wing, religious and nonreligious, Christian and Muslim opposition to the war united in one front against one mutual enemy. It will be the cornerstone of every future realignment of antiwar forces in the U.S." --Israel Adam Shamir, journalist and author, Flowers of Galilee.
"At last, a truly universal critique on the war in Iraq." --Anthony Cappello, researcher, Victoria University, Australia; director, Freedom Publishing; national secretary, Thomas More Centre.
With a foreword by Bishop Hilarion Capucci, and contributions from Rev. Juan Carlos Iscara, SSPX, Professor John Rao, Dr. Robert Hickson, Paul Likoudis, Dr. Peter Chojnowski, and Professor Romano Amerio. 

Neo-Conned! Again: Hypocrisy, Lawlessness and the Rape of Iraq

The moral, political, and legal problems surrounding the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq are addressed with uncommon frankness in this collection of essays by some of the world's most influential academics, lawyers, journalists, politicians, and military, intelligence, and media experts. Contributions include academics such as Noam Chomsky, Immanuel Wallerstein, and Claes Ryn; journalists Milton Viorst, Robert Fisk, Kirkpatrick Sale, and Justin Raimondo; former CIA professional Ray McGovern; former Defense Intelligence Agency professional W. Patrick Lang; and Fr. Jean-Marie Benjamin, personal friend of the former Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq Traiq Aziz. Discussing the Iraq war and related issues such as the legal foundation of the war on terror, the detention practices at Guantanamo bay, and the roots of the American neo-conservative ideology, the essays illustrate the hypocrisy and illegality of America's stance on terrorism and its policies of aggression in the Middle East.
"Deconstructs the war on Iraq as part of the neo-con blueprint for consolidating the American Empire." --Marjorie Cohn, professor, Thomas Jefferson School of Law; executive vice president, National Lawyers Guild; representative, American Association of Jurists
"Much more than just a critique of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, this volume effectively dissects broad aspects of U.S. foreign policy - both of the current Bush Administration and those administrations that preceded it." --Roger E. Kanet, PhD, professor of political science and political developments in Central and Eastern Europe, University of Miami
"This remarkable two-volume collection of essays and interviews provides the most comprehensive coverage of the war and its aftermath available anywhere." --George Downs, dean of social science; professor, New York University
With an introduction from former UN Weapons Inspector, Scott Ritter.
