It is of vital importance that each individual soul recover this lost sense of sin and to begin the struggle to conquer the deadly sins that threaten his or her salvation. The Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin will help you do just that in your own life. In any struggle, you must know your enemy. Hence, Part I: - Defines sin and distinguishes between mortal and venial sins. - Examines each of the classical seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, anger, envy, and pride. - Reveals their causes, manifestations, and more. - Provides specific advice and remedies for conquering each deadly sin in your own life. - Identifies those corresponding virtues which must be cultivated in order to rid yourself of deadly sin. Part II, features a compilation of passages from Church teaching and Scripture, along with quotes from the saints that complement and give life to the reflections in Part I. As Fr. Kolinski makes clear-- the truest medicine is found in the sacramental life of the Church. But, in addition to the graces found in frequent confession and reception of the Eucharist, the Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin will be an indispensable aid in your fight; an invaluable resource for every person serious about salvation.

Experience spiritual calm with the first adult coloring book to focus on the Rosary as you color and reflect on the traditional Catholic prayer. Renowned artist Daniel Mitsui provides exquisitely detailed illustrations of the Glorious, Joyful, and Sorrowful Mysteries, suitable for meditative coloring and for reflecting on the lives of Jesus and the Blessed Mother. Adult coloring books were the fastest-growing book category last year, making up five of the top ten bestselling books in 2015. But of the hundreds of coloring books on the market, very few reflect Catholic themes. Daniel Mitsui's The Mysteries of the Rosary is the first adult coloring book to focus on the Rosary and draw inspiration from medieval illustrated manuscripts. Just as repetition of the Hail Mary during the Rosary can create a contemplative awareness of its mysteries, careful attention to coloring these captivating illustrations can open your heart to a deeper awareness of the Rosary's truths. Like the medieval monks who understood their artistic decoration of the gospels as a form of prayer and praise, you'll find yourself caught up in meditative wonder as you prayerfully color Mitsui's images. The artist specializes in hand-drawn ink illustrations on paper or vellum. Since his conversion to Catholicism in 2004, most of his pieces have focused on religious subjects. Mitsui decided to publish selections of his fine art as a coloring book because he believes that traditional Catholic art has the power to shape the imagination and heart of everyone who experiences it. This unique coloring book contains thirty illustrations--fifteen full-page drawings of the mysteries of the Rosary, each one beautifully bordered by traditional images of animals and flowers; twelve vignettes featuring prophets, evangelists, and Fathers of the Church; and three larger drawings with the artist's commentary. It also contains descriptive copy written by the author for the three sets of Mysteries.

Few things in this earthly life are absolutely certain, but the most undebatable of these is death. Every person, even the atheist, will admit that death is certain. Death, however, is not the last event in this life of ours. Immediately after death, we shall be judged and then again on the Day of Judgment when all humanity will know us for what we are. Too often the reality of Heaven and salvation are highlighted at the expense of the Church's teachings on Death, Judgment, Purgatory, and Hell. Yet, these important doctrines of the Church hold the truths of salvation truths that can lead us to Heaven or can pull us away from it. In these pages, Fr. Wade Menezes, EWTN television host and Assistant General of the Fathers of Mercy, shows us that God has not called us to His wrath, but to salvation. He shows us that Heaven and Hell, salvation and damnation, eternal life and eternal punishment are all complementary doctrines. They need each other to be complete and we must understand the Church's teachings on all of these doctrines in order to have a balanced view of the world. Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell these are the Four Last Things toward which we are moving each hour of the day and night. Read this book, and you'll have a firm grasp of one of the most important doctrines of Holy Mother Church that holds the truths of Heaven and our own salvation.
