Christ the King - They Have Uncrowned Him

From the back cover of the third edition of They have Uncrowned Him

"It is of immense importance that English-speaking readers should read, mark, learn and inwardly digest this book of Archbishop Lefebvre, They Have Uncrowned Him.

The Archbishop here denounces in depth the great plague of modern times, which has virtually destroyed Christian civilisation and is now wrecking the Catholic Church. That plague is Liberalism, or man's freeing himself with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his strength and with all his mind, from God.

Where did Liberalism come from? How is it so strong? How has it penetrated even into the Catholic Church? Alas, there is in English very little literature available on the subject. This is because England is steeped in Liberalism and has spread her liberal influences throughout the world, especially the English-speaking world, ever since that terrible 16th century, when King Henry VIII began to split the Church of England from the Church in England, and the mass of Englishmen followed in his footsteps, putting earthly king in front of Heavenly King, patriotism (so-called) in front of religion, country in front of God.

The problem extends far wider now than just poor England. The Church of Rome is being split from the true Church in Rome, as Our Lady of La Salette said it would. Despite her warning, Liberalism and Catholicism is confused in millions of Catholic minds.

In this book, Archbishop Lefebvre puts the crown firmly back on the head of our Heavenly King, Jesus Christ. Thank God, English-speaking readers have made this third edition necessary. All is not lost. May they make fourth, fifth and sixth editions necessary.

The Secret Still Hidden

An appeal from the latest Fatima Crusader:

"Universal Call to Prayer. Join us October 13

On October 13, 2015 - the 98th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun, Our Lady's sixth apparition at Fatima - join us in praying a Rosary for the bishops attending the Synod, for the conversion of sinners and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We plan to pray this Rosary kneeling in Saint Peter's square at the same hour as Our Lady's Fatima apparition took place, which is 12 noon Portugal time, 1:00 pm Rome, Italy time. We believe our prayers united with those of supporters around the world on this day honouring Our Lady and Her Fatima Message will be more powerful, more efficacious.

Please pray a Rosary any time that day for the above-mentioned intentions while uniting your prayers with ours and those of all our apostolate volunteers and other supporters".

On June 26, 2000 the Vatican published the enigmatic vision of "the Bishop dressed in white" and claimed it was the entirety of the Third Secret of Fatima. Since then, a growing number of Catholics have become convinced that something is missing.

What is missing are the words of the Virgin Mary which would explain how the Pope in the vision comes to be executed by soldiers outside a ruined city filled with corpses. In this book, lawyer and Catholic commentator Christopher A. Ferrara conducts a meticulous examination of a mass of evidence - including many recent admissions, inadvertent disclosures, inconsistencies and sudden about-faces on the part of the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone - to arrive at the inescapable conclusion that a text of the Virgin's words in the Third Secret has yet to be revealed.

This book is the first full-length examination of the grounds for rejecting Cardinal Bertone's version of the facts in the Third Secret controversy. The Cardinal's own statements, including his book and radio and television broadcasts in 2007, are shown to demonstrate beyond any doubt that a text of the Secret has been suppressed, evidently under an unjustifiable mental reservation that the text is not 'authentic'.

"Lepanto" by G K Chesterton (read by Tom O'Bedlam)

The Devotion of the Holy Rosary and the Five Scapulars

The Holy Rosary is a gift from the Blessed Virgin Mary, as are her powerful scapulars. This is the theme Fr. Michael Muller stresses throughout these two-hundred and seventy-five pages of grateful acclamation to a devotion upon which the salvation of great multitudes of sinners rests.

The heartfelt recitation of the rosary and meditation on the mysteries thereof is the best 'thank you' we can give to Mary for her unfathomable mercies.

The scholarly author expounds upon every aspect of this devotion now over eight-hundred years old. He relates it wonderfully to the New Testament as well as to the Old. Every single page of the pious work is replete with holy quotations or exciting analogies, inspiring anecdotes or miracles.

And, too, there are enough actual accounts of graces spurned, or false and superstitious devotion to make us fearful.

This is a book that the faithful will love so much that they will feel compelled to share their gift with wayward friends and relatives.
