Priest in Union with Christ
By Garrigou-Lagrance, O.P.
In The Priest in Union with Christ the famous thomostic theologian Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. expounds in a disciplined manner upon the specific holiness of the priesthood and the supernatural fruitfulness of the priestly apostolate. Steeped in Sacred Scripture, St. Thomas Aquinas and other traditional Catholic sources, the author presents the classic Catholic traditions on the priestly vocation traditions which many seminarians and young priests today may have never even heard oŁ He begins by explaining the character and the specific sacramental grace of Holy Orders, as well as the central sacerdotal work: to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. From this foundation he proceeds to the interior life of the priest, and then to the priest's apostolate as confessor, as preacher and as spiritual director, keeping constantly focused on the great twofold goal of every priest's life: the glory of God and the salvation of souls. For without this constant "bias toward eternity" in all he does, the priest is fundamentally off course. Among the topics covered here are: Union with Christ as Priest and as Victim Different ways of offering Mass from the sacrilegious Mass to the Mass of the Saints The priest's own Communion Examples of priests who were Saints The priest and Our Lady The Confessor as father, doctor, teacher and judge, according to St. Alphonsus Liguori The secular approach vs. the true Christian approach to Christian preaching Essential subjects for sermons and how to expound them The spiritual direction of beginners, of the proficient and of perfected souls Giving retreats to various types of persons The discernment of spirits the human, the diabolical, the spirit of God Plus many other topics. Today, when many priests and seminarians have been led to believe that they must personally design their own particular priesthood to meet the needs of their people, this book is of primary importance to help them re-focus their priesthood on God, on eternal life and on the saving of souls as based on the perennial teachings of the Church and as exemplified in the lives of canonized Saints who were themselves priests. A seminarian or priest who reads and digests THE PRIEST TN UNION WITH CHRIST will realize that the priest is not meant to be merely a functionary of the Church or a fulfiller of the desires of his flock, but rather that he has been called by God to the highest vocation on earth, to great personal sanctity and to a lofty, disciplined ministry to souls all in union with the Great High Priest Himself, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross
By Fr. Christopher Rengers, O.F.M. Cap.
Few Christians can recall all Seven of Our Lord's Last Words on the Cross. Yet these "Seven Words" brief sentences spoken by Him give us Our Saviour's sacred parting instructions, messages intended not only for their few immediate hearers on the hill of Calvary, but spoken to all generations by way of Holy Scripture. For nothing that Our Lord said or did is without meaning for each of us today. Despite Jesus' agony on the Cross, these words do not express desperation or anger, but rather the strength of a Person in full command of His faculties to the very end. They are replete with that immense and far more-than-human love for us which was unquenchable in Our Lord, even by torture and the approach of death, as exemplified in St. John's statement: "He loved them unto the end." (John 13:1). In this little book, Father Christopher Rengers looks at each of the Seven Last Words for an understanding of their inner meaning, drawing out of them their lessons for us today with regard to forgiveness, care for the dying, zeal for souls, discouragement, fulfillment of obligations, and so (Continued from outside back cover.) forth. No Christian should be ignorant of the Seven Last Words of Christ nor of the meanings which they contain messages which Our Lord speaks to us across the centuries, and all as recorded in the Holy Gospel. "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34). "Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43). "Woman, behold thy son.... Behold thy mother." (John 19:26-27). "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matt. 27:46). "I thirst." (John 19:28). "It is consummated." (John 19:30). "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit." (Luke 23:46).

and Sinners of Calvary
By Fr. Christopher Rengers, O.F.M. Cap.
connected with the Passion and Death of Christ was purely accidental. And although
Our Saviour was unquestionably the central Figure of Calvary, many other persons
by God's Providence took part in the living drama of the first Good Friday.
These persons too provide instruction for our own lives. In this book, Fr. Christopher
Rengers draws from Scripture, history and early Christian traditions to complete
our knowledge of those events and of the persons who took part in them. The
author gives interesting historical background on the identity of Mary Magdalen;
Herod Antipas and his execution of St. John the Baptist; the Sanhedrin's plans
against Our Lord; the Romans' rule of Jerusalem; etc. But in addition to a greater
understanding of the events of the Passion, the reader will also find here spiritual
lessons both of warning and of encouragement. Particularly sobering is the story
of Pontius Pilate, who did not want to condemn Our Lord, but slipped from one
compromise to another until he had condemned the Saviour of the world, God Himself,
to crucifixion. On the other hand, the great "repenters" St. Peter and St. Mary
Magdalen bring a message of great encouragement and hope to all who have ever
betrayed Our Lord by sin. Each of these 10 chapters provides valuable knowledge
and admonition for Christians today. To read this book is to understand better
the historical events upon which the Catholic Faith is founded and to receive
a greater portion of the instruction which these great events hold for every

"The pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for twenty-five months or more because, during all that time there will be no Pope in Rome... After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions."
John of Vitiguerro (13th Century)
will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the yoke of the Lord
of Lords. And so she will be left to fight a war; blood will flow on all sides.
Churches will be locked up or desecrated. Priests and religious orders will
be hunted down, and made to die a cruel death. Several will abandon the faith,
and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away
from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops.
“May the Pope guard against the performers of miracles. For the time has come when the most astonishing wonders will take place on the earth and in the air.
