The season of Lent is the time to renew your desire to be a disciple of Christ. The three forms of penance—fasting, praying, almsgiving—are a means for you to hear, look upon, and touch Him. Ask yourself, “Have I heard Him?”, “Have I seen Him”, “Have I touched Him?” Jesus Christ is alive! He is inviting you to be an eye witness. Don’t be afraid to spend the next forty days reading and meditating on the Word of God, for “indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword” (Hebrews 4:12).

The Belief of Catholics0 out of 5
Out of Print: While Belief of Catholics deals extensively with Protestantism, its target is more the unchurched or lightly-churched modern who, if he gives any thought at all to Catholicism, thinks it mildly foreign. The author Ronald Knox, one of the most influential British convert-writers of the 20th century, discusses “the truths Catholics hold”, “the rules Catholics acknowledge”, “the strength Catholics receive”, and “the ambitions Catholics honour” but also that God really does exist, that His existence matters, and that only knowledge of Him and obedience to Him can lead to answers to the questions that haunt everyone.
By What Authority?0 out of 5
In this newly updated, expanded version of his popular work of apologetics, Shea presents a lively and entertaining look at his conversion to Catholicism from Evangelicalism and his discovery of Christian tradition. As an Evangelical, Shea accepted the principle of “sola scriptura” (Scripture alone) as the basis of faith. Now as a Catholic convert, he skillfully explains how and why Sacred Tradition occupies a central role in Divine Revelation.
