Pope Benedict XVI - Last Testament
The story of the first Pope to resign in over 700 years.
Pope Benedict made history by being the first Pope in over 700 years to resign from office. The Catholic Church the world over was stunned. Worn out by corruption in the Church and by an endless series of clerical sex scandals, he decided that the resolution of all these problems was outside his power for a man of his age.
Last Testament is nearest to an autobiography from the shy and private man who has remained “hidden to the world” in a former convent in the Vatican gardens. He breaks his silence on issues such as:
- The “Vatileaks” case in which his butler leaked some of his personal letters that alleged corruption and scandal in the Vatican (the butler remains in jail)
- The presence of a “gay lobby” within the Vatican and how he dismantled it
- His alleged Nazi upbringing
- His attempts at cleaning up the “dirt in the church” (clerical sexual abuse)
On a more personal level he writes with great warmth of his successor Pope Francis, who he admits has a popular touch, a star quality which he has lacked. Much controversy still surrounds Pope Benedict`s Papacy--in this book he addresses these controversies and reveals how at his late age, governing and reforming the Papacy and particularly the Vatican, was beyond him.
Do you want to learn to better resist temptation?
Then reach for this book by Fr. P.J. Michel: Temptations: Where They Come From, What They Mean, and How to Defeat Them. Fr. Michel is a savvy professor of theology whose wisdom and common sense have been forged not only in the classroom, but by decades of ardent prayer and service to penitent souls in the confessional.
He explains where your temptations come from and helps rid you of them (and of your fear of them). He teaches you how to best respond to the different kinds of temptations that assail you, and he even shows you how to profit spiritually from your temptations, no matter how strong or frequent they may be! From these clear, succinct pages you’ll learn:
- Why you, in particular, are still tempted (and why God allows it)
- Whether your temptations show that you’ve turned away from God
- Whether the evil thoughts and impulses that afflict you regularly are merely temptations . . . or sins to which you have somehow consented
- Whether your temptations are a test, a punishment, neither, or both
- How to arm yourself against temptations… before they occur
- When it’s better simply to ignore — rather than battle — certain temptations
- The one, simple thing you must do when strong, persistent temptations occupy your mind
- What makes it easier to fend off sensual temptations
- Which temptations you must never reason with (as did poor Eve, to her sorrow – and ours!)
- What to do about temptations that arise from acts of virtue (e.g. pride that you’ve fasted well)
- The one promise of God you must be sure to remember when temptations discourage you
- And why you must never yield to despair, especially after you’ve yielded to temptations (and what to do instead)
Finally, if you’re able to make a gift of $500 or more, we’d also like to send you something very special . . .
Who Am I to Judge?
How do we talk about morality in a world that no longer believes in truth? When we’re bombarded with messages of “Be tolerant!” “Don’t judge!” and “Coexist!” many good people feel afraid to say anything is right or wrong anymore.
In this 8-episode study program, Who Am I to Judge?, popular Bible scholar Dr. Edward Sri gives us an important key to responding to relativism effectively—a Catholic moral worldview. Learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making a judgment is not judging a person’s soul, and how, in the words of Pope Francis, “relativism wounds people” and is “the spiritual poverty of our times.”
Ideal for men’s and women’s groups, adult faith formation, and young adult ministry, this study program gives Catholics greater confidence in God’s moral law, greater clarity in how to explain it effectively to our secular friends, and greater compassion for those with whom we disagree.
- Episode 1: Don’t Impose Your Morality on Me!
- Episode 2: Recovering the Basics: Virtue and Friendship
- Episode 3: Real Freedom, Real Love
- Episode 4: The Lost “Art of Living”

- Episode 6: “I Disagree” Doesn’t Mean “I Hate You”
