The battle for men's souls is intensifying in these last days, and there is a growing urgency that we no longer walk by our feelings, but by faith in the sure testimony of the Word of God. From the Garden of Eden until now, Satan has mingled truth with a lie: "Hath God said?" Knowing that deception is an end time sign, we must seek now, more than ever, to know the truth in order to expose his lies. The Immaculate Deception first challenges readers to lay aside the doctrines and traditions of the Catholic Church and begin to question their salvation by no other source than is revealed in the Word of God. Secondly, the book reveals the truth surrounding Mary, the Blessed Virgin and Mother of Jesus, who is being used by Satan to attack the Catholic Church in these last days. The Author's ministry spans fourteen years of teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in prisons, missions and jails in Arkansas and Tennessee. She graduated Bible College from Forward Ministries - Global Ministries and Relief, Dr. Leon Van Rooyan, and is a member of Church of the Harvest. She has been a guest speaker on Christian radio, and has spoken to women's groups and churches in Tennessee. More importantly, her passion is for winning souls, and this book is an extension of that outreach to win souls in the Catholic Church.
A History of Perfect Innings in Baseball
Author: John Cairney
Publisher: Mosaic Press
Category: Sports & Recreation
Getting 3 batters out in order on nine pitches is one of the most remarkable feats in baseball. Since the late 1800s, only 71 pitchers have been able to do it. Yet, unlike other rare achievements in baseball, such as pitching a perfect game, the “immaculate inning” does not capture the same attention or consideration. In a game that is as unpredictable as baseball, perfection, when it occurs, should be cause for both reflection and celebration. In Immaculate, Cairney provides a short history of perfect innings through the stories of the pitchers who pitched them. Beginning with an brief overview of the numbers, the remaining chapters, one for each immaculate inning on record in major baseball, provides insight into the men, their careers and details of the inning itself, from the first recorded perfect inning in 1889 to the most recent string of innings last MLB season in 2014. The names include pitching greats such as Jim Bunning, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson, but also many lesser known, if not colorful, pitchers like “Sloppy” Thurston and Bill Wilson. The teams include famous franchises like the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees, but also clubs now defunct like the Boston Beaneaters and the Montreal Expos. Using immaculate innings as benchmarks, the book provides an engaging and entertaining journey through the history of professional baseball that will delight both the serious student of the game, as well as the fan who enjoys reading about the game.

A Spiritual Profile
Author: Fr. Stefano Maria Manelli, FI
Publisher: Academy of the Immaculate
A book that gives a profound explanation of how one can relate with the Immaculate by means of "the Marian Vow" of total consecration to the Immaculate that is transformative and life-changing. This book is a treatise on total consecration to the Immaculate, conceived initially by St. Maximilian M. Kolbe and has developed into the distinctive charism of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. Such charism finds its consummation in the profession of this Marian consecration in the form of a religious vow, known as, "The Marian Vow." Finding its original inspiration in St. Maximilian Kolbe who envisioned of a "fourth vow" of consecration that puts no limit to the missionary work of the religious, Fr. Stefano Manelli, the founder of the Franciscans of the Immaculate continued with the same inspiration and develop it to include both Marian and missionary character. This book is the theological and ascetical explanation of this Marian Vow. The book is not, by all means, exclusive to the Franciscans of the Immaculate. One can find universal insights based on solid spiritual theology of how one can relate in a more personal way with the Immaculate who ceases to be just a mere figure of veneration; she becomes alive and present to one's soul in a unique way that is transformative and life-changing. This book is utterly unique and inspired. As the Founder and Father General of the entire family of the Franciscans of the Immaculate (Friars, Sisters, Poor Clares, Tertiaries, and M.I.M.), Fr. Stefano has distilled, and put into writing for his children, the illumination he has received about the Marian Vow over the past decades. This work is the fruit of his life of prayer, study, and missionary activity. It is the fruit of his profound union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Why Thomas Aquinas Denied, While John Duns Scotus, Gregory Palamas, & Mark Eugenicus Professed the Absolute Immaculate Existence of Mary
Author: Father Christiaan W. Kappes
Publisher: Academy of the Immaculate
Category: Immaculate Conception
This second volume of the series Mariological Studies in Honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe treats the mystery of the Immaculate Conception, hidden in plain sight for nearly a thousand years prior to Bl. John Duns Scotus and his later influence at the Council of Florence. Until now, practically nothing was known of this history. Key to the present study is St. Gregory Nazianzen, whose Marian doctrine inspired Benedict XVI at a 2007 public audience: "Mary, who gave human nature to Christ, is true Mother of God and, in view of her highest mission, was 'prepurified,' as if a distant prelude of the Immaculate Conception." Fr. Kappes' groundbreaking thesis confirms Benedict's insight beyond anything previously imaginable. The person and mystery of Mary in Christ and the Church unfolds as indispensable for ecumenical theology. Greco-Latin agreement on the Immaculate Conception at Florence was itself a portent to subsequent harmony on other doctrinal questions, then, as now. As Pope Francis intensifies efforts to resolve differences between Orthodox and Catholics, Fr. Kappes' research clarifies Our Lady's central role in these efforts.

Two years after executing a major sting operation that places Tony Masella, one of Chicago’s most notorious counterfeiters behind bars, U. S. Secret Service agent Wesley Charles receives an urgent call from the DC Bureau. Wes soon discovers that Masella, now released from prison, is part of a slick international Vatican-based counterfeiting ring of pedophile priests. The Vatican is using counterfeit money to staunch the flood of lawsuits involving pedophile cases that threaten to bankrupt the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. World-famous couturier “Peppi” Giuseppe Tubiano and his lover, “Father Ira” (Philip Tuma), who is director of the Chicago archdiocese consortium of non-profit foundations, operate a global bank trading and counterfeiting scam, using the counterfeit money to pay off the courts. The Church performs “rituals of forgiveness” for its pedophile priests, retiring or relocating them to distant dioceses where they are free to continue their sexual debauchery. Blackmail becomes the flavor of the day when Italian police officer Angela Micele, a smoky-eyed Sophia Loren look-like and her sexy friend, Maria Pelino, who works in the Rome USSS offices as a translator, cook up a plot to seek revenge for Angela’s USSS boyfriend murdered by the Mafia in a bungled attempt to bring down the Italian counterfeiters. Agent Charles, the two women and Maria’s cousin Nicky, a member of the Vatican Swiss Guard, pull off a series of elaborate high tech stunts in the final scene underneath the Sistine Chapel only hours after the new pope has been elected. Although this is a fiction work, it is based on factual information. It is common knowledge that the courts are flooded with cases involving Catholic priests practicing pedophilia and sexual abuse. Few people are aware that these cases continue to go unprosecuted while other non-Catholic sex offenders land behind bars with serious charges and long-term sentences. Immaculate Deception begs the question about divine dispensation, papal politics and Catholic controlled courts.
