An African is elected Pope as the Barque of Peter encounters heavy seas. Everywhere, the Faith and the West are in decline. Ominously, occult practices have corrupted the elites, the media and powerful men in the Church. The new pontiff faces this unprecedented challenge alone, until an embattled American Cardinal sends his best exorcist to Rome, a young Dominican priest with hard experience combating the Devil -- in Latin -- on America's mean streets. Meanwhile, a US media mogul, an indifferent Catholic targeted for his politics, flees America with his family for the Eternal City. There, they find a despondent society where Italians no longer marry and have children. Indeed, all hope seems lost until a beautiful Roman girl takes a brave stance against the rising tide of despair. Gritty, fascinating and impossible to forget, 'The Devil Hates Latin' sweeps from New England to the Tiber, and ultimately to a Renaissance palazzo nestled in the green hills of Umbria, building to a shattering confrontation as Good summons the courage to face the menace of the gathering forces of Evil.

First published around 1573, and known as the "earliest; most trustworthy account" of the Reformation in England.

Before he became Pope Benedict XVI, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger famously noted that "the crisis in the Church we are experiencing today is, to a large extent, due to the disintegration of the liturgy." Along those very same lines, Archbishop Alexander K. Sample of Portland, Oregon has argued that "an authentic and faithful renewal and reform of the sacred liturgy is not only part of the New Evangelization-it is essential to its fruitfulness." In this collection of timely essays, Brian Williams (the "Liturgy Guy") explains why restoration of the sacred to the Holy Mass must be a top priority for the Church. Tackling a wide range of topics such as ad orientem worship, kneeling for Communion, the use of Latin in the Mass, and a return to male only altar servers, the Liturgy Guy explains why the recovery of our a Catholic tradition is not simply a matter of preference, but rather one of urgent necessity.

If you listen to any political argument, you're eventually bound to hear something like: "The science is settled on this." Or: "Just look at the statistics!" Or: "There have been studies that say..." You'd think we were living in the golden age of science and reason. But the truth is far more sinister, says Austin Ruse. We're actually living in the age of the low information voter, easily mislead by all-too-convincing false statistics and studies. In Fake Science, Ruse debunks so-called "facts" used to advance political causes one after the other, revealing how poorly they stand up to actual science.

This is a love story. But it is also a detective story. And best of all, it is a true story, told here for the the first time. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a romantic, a writer of detective tales, and a teller of the truth. His own story and the stories he told are becoming better and better known. But what has remained unknown is the story of the most important person in his life: his wife Frances. Nancy Carpentier Brown has done incredible detective work to uncover the mystery of Frances, tracking a figure who managed to leave very few traces of herself. It is quite likely that as more is discovered about Frances, more biographies will be written of her, and they will be even more complete. But they will all come back to this one. -Dale Ahlquist, from the Foreword

An aging New Yorker, a writer named Nick, feels life ebbing out of him. The world has gone to hell and Nick is so sick of it all that he can't even have a glass of champagne. Then one night he meets a tantalizing young woman who agrees to come back to his apartment. Their encounter is the most strangely extraordinary of his life. Propelled by uncontrollable, primordial desires, he enters a new and unimagined dimension of the forbidden and is filled with a sexual and spiritual ecstasy that is as intense as it is unholy. Suddenly Nick's senses are alive. He feels strong, unconquerable, beyond all inhibition and earthly morality. He indulges in life's pleasures, pure and perverse, sublime and dangerous, from the delicate flavors of the perfect tomato to the fleshy beauty of a woman's thigh. But Nick's desire to sustain his rapture leads him to a madness and a darkness far greater and dreadful than have ever ridden the demon mares of night.

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW 10 BEST BOOKS OF 2017 SELECTED AS A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: The Washington Post * Elle * NPR * New York Magazine * Boston Globe * Nylon * Slate * The Cut * The New Yorker * Boston Globe * Chicago Tribune “Affectionate and very funny . . . wonderfully grounded and authentic. This book proves Lockwood to be a formidably gifted writer who can do pretty much anything she pleases.” – The New York Times Book Review From Patricia Lockwood—a writer acclaimed for her wildly original voice—a vivid, heartbreakingly funny memoir about balancing identity with family and tradition. Father Greg Lockwood is unlike any Catholic priest you have ever met—a man who lounges in boxer shorts, loves action movies, and whose constant jamming on the guitar reverberates “like a whole band dying in a plane crash in 1972.” His daughter is an irreverent poet who long ago left the Church’s country. When an unexpected crisis leads her and her husband to move back into her parents’ rectory, their two worlds collide. In Priestdaddy, Lockwood interweaves emblematic moments from her childhood and adolescence—from an ill-fated family hunting trip and an abortion clinic sit-in where her father was arrested to her involvement in a cultlike Catholic youth group—with scenes that chronicle the eight-month adventure she and her husband had in her parents’ household after a decade of living on their own. Lockwood details her education of a seminarian who is also living at the rectory, tries to explain Catholicism to her husband, who is mystified by its bloodthirstiness and arcane laws, and encounters a mysterious substance on a hotel bed with her mother. Lockwood pivots from the raunchy to the sublime, from the comic to the deeply serious, exploring issues of belief, belonging, and personhood. Priestdaddy is an entertaining, unforgettable portrait of a deeply odd religious upbringing, and how one balances a hard-won identity with the weight of family and tradition.

He could kill for Allah. Would he die for Clara? Back home from a business trip in Egypt, beautiful young Canadian travel executive Clara Cumberhart muses over her unexpected love affair with a mysterious tourist guide there. Azim is handsome, passionate and altruistic, but something about him is hidden, beyond her grasp. What is his secret? Before too long, Clara's world suddenly upends, and she finds herself once again walking the streets of Cairo. This time, however, her fairy tale romance by the Pyramids explodes into a tale of violence and fear. Clara is caught in the centre of an international conflagration touched off by an unfolding jihadist nightmare. As the violence spreads around her and the Nile turns blood red, Clara wishes fervently that she had never set foot on the hot Egyptian sand. Assassins and martyrs alike surround her; who can she trust? A crippled billionaire? A community of dedicated nuns? An attractive bodyguard? An exorcist priest? Clara, disbelieving and stunned, finds herself on a war footing, stretched to the limits of her wits and endurance. But as she travels from Cairo to Paris and London, and then finally back along the Nile, Clara's flight becomes a journey of self-discovery. Caught in the shifting winds of a new world war of unimaginable violence, this thoroughly modern young woman with no particular interest in religion finds that deep questions of morality and faith are brought into sharp focus in her new, unlooked-for life. And when she ultimately must confront evil, only true love can inspire her. "A compelling glimpse of things to come, a warning of the strife that could be approaching, but still it is a tale of hope, and glory." - from the Preface by novelist Corinna Turner, author of the I Am Margaret series

To Build the City of God

Living as Catholics in a Secular Age

Is man an isolated, voluntaristic, autonomous individual, as modernity would have him? Or is he subject to natural, social, and transcendent orders? Much has been written since Rerum Novarum in 1891 on the general outlines of Catholic social, economic, and political thought, but what Catholics need today is a sure guide to how to live out these principles in their daily lives. To this end, Brian McCall's To Build the City of God responds with chapters on marriage and the family, dress, education, profit and wealth, debt, politics in the age of Obama, and much more. The modern world has erected a monstrous edifice on false principles, which, through its own intrinsic nilhilism, is hollow to the core. Given time, it must collapse, and so with clarity and insight the author points the way for Catholics to live always under the reign of Christ; and to bring His kingship to a world increasingly desperate for the only Way that can truly bind us in temporal solidarity and transcendent communion.

Now Chiefly Poetical

Poetry. "Kevin DiCamillo's poems are so finely tuned that they risk calling the reader's attention too exclusively to their form and to all the fragile echoes from other writers that haunt them. This volume is, in itself, plotted as a complicated sequence, and is not merely a gathering of incidental or occasional poems. The opening lyric poems are immediately arresting; but it is in the retrospect afforded them by the 'Gradual Psalms' and the 'Stations of the Cross' that they fully reveal themselves. The sequence is in some respects simple&8212;it starts with an account of the world and of the way it has been glimpsed in various writers; then the transience of this is absorbed into the meditative sequences that follow, although the absorption of one world into another is a painful one; then it is celebrated in the Joycean epithalamium. This is poetry of the highest order, deserving of wide recognition."--Seamus Deane "Beautiful, passionate, and inspiring."--James Martin "The sacred underlies so much of Kevin DiCamillo's new poetry collection, NOW CHIEFLY POETICAL: the sacred of god, the sacred of love and intimacy but perhaps most powerfully, the sacred of the ordinary. On the ordinary, from his poem 'Compline Complaint' we read, 'one week to rid the shards of that smashed jar, the floor a field of infinitesimal moon crescents, toenails.' Similarly on the topic of love and intimacy in 'The Jesse Tree': 'All your transmorphications! All of them I'd love As surely as if you came in hot from mowing the lawn To reveal two of your fingers cut by a careless move Of hand near blade... 'Impossible!' you state and leave shaking your head. You're right. But I wish you were something else instead.' Even the underlying misery we experience with those we love most is included. This is DiCamillo's gift, being inclusive of the thoughts we have had and have sadly forgotten, but are gifted now with his poetic reminders. This is why we read his mapped, strung-across-the-page poems--to come to know ourselves again, along the lines of the sacred."--Joanna Clapps

In today’s culture of scientific enlightenment, many consider belief in demonic possession and exorcism to be superstitious remnants of the Dark Ages. Even many Christians, contrary to the clear words of Jesus in the Gospel, scoff at the notion that the Devil and demons really exist. Is demonic possession real? Are believers really in any danger from Satan and his crafty minions? What is the truth about exorcism? In this captivating book, you will find answers to these questions and many more. Written by one of the Church’s foremost experts on the topic, Interview with an Exorcist is based on Fr. Jose Antonio Fortea’s years of working as an exorcist, his extensive investigations of cases of suspected possessions, and his attendance at hundreds of exorcisms. You will learn: The difference between demonic possession, obsession, and infestation What really happens at an exorcism The signs that show when possession is present How to tell the difference between psychological problems and demonic influence Why the number of possessions has been increasing in recent times Why consulting mediums, dabbling in witchcraft, or having recourse to other occult practices is an open invitation to demonic spirits Why the permission of the local bishop is required for an exorcism to occur Why some within the Church disparage this essential apostolic ministry And much more

Workaholic Camille Ashland is at the top of her game. She has built a thriving business, has a lovely daughter, and lives in a newly decorated home. The forty-four-year-old widow doesn't have time to be lonely, and a relationship is at the bottom of her list. On Valentine's Day eve, in the middle of her busy chocolate shop, Camille suffers a heart attack and has a near-death experience that lasts three-and-a-half minutes. Revived, she can recall little detail about what she has experienced-but something inside keeps whispering that it was divine. She wishes she could remember more fully. For a complete stress buster, her doctor sends Camille on an Austrian vacation to a German-language school in Vienna. When Gunther Christove walks into the classroom, every woman takes notice-especially Camille. After several dreamlike flashbacks, Camille is convinced she's either crazy, or someone or something beyond this earth is trying to tell her something. Without realizing it at first, Camille becomes caught up in an investigation surrounding the school, one that also involves Gunther's brother, Father Florian Christove. As she and Gunther grow close, the mysterious flashbacks become more frequent and compelling-almost demanding. Will her three-and-a-half minutes between life and death destroy her second chance at happiness, or turn her life into a banquet of love?"
