It is a difficult thing to live as a Catholic in our age.
In school, our children are taught that the Ages of Faith were actually the Dark Ages, and yet that was the time when all of nature was invigorated with the supernatural, and when the presence of God and His saints was still keenly felt. Now, we have all the distractions of a virtual reality that is no reality at all, living in societies that attempt to ignore God, meaning that we are truly surrounded by a spiritual Dark Age.
Knights and saints were the timeless superheroes of all the ages. Unlike our modern age, where we have mutant comic book characters held up as heroes, knights and saints worked miracles and achieved great deeds in reality with the help of God and His Church.
God doesn't change. we need to hold up for our children the virtues of the saints and knights, to do good because they are good, for the love of God. These are the inspirations were want to give our children, and the toys and games they play, and the clothes they wear, are tangible reminders of what it is they seek to become and the goals they wish to achieve.
With that in mind, we've offered a few selections here of books and toys for birthdays and holidays that might provide inspiration for your little knights and ladies.
A fierce war rages for your soul. Are you ready for battle?
Like it or not, you are at war. You face a powerful enemy out to destroy you. You live on the battlefield, so you can’t escape the conflict.
It’s a spiritual war with crucial consequences in your everyday life and its outcome will determine your eternal destiny.
You must engage the Enemy. And as you fight, you need a Manual for Spiritual Warfare.
This guide for spiritual warriors will help you recognize, resist, and overcome the Devil’s attacks. Part One, “Preparing for Battle,” answers these critical questions:
Manual for Men is for men who are in the arena, warriors for Christ and His Church. It is for those men who battle daily for their souls and for their family. It is often a struggle to shed the sins and vices the world offers men, but it’s a battle we must fight and win.
Bishop Thomas Olmsted calls for Catholic men to step up and “into the breach” in service to God. Olmsted unveils:
• How being a Christian man is far more than physical prowess or worldly power
• Why the world and the Church desperately need men—real men—to fight for them in spiritual combat
• The vital importance of prayer and the sacraments in the life of every man
• Why fatherhood, fully understood, is so crucial for every man
• The value of devotion to a patron saint (complete with 10 manly suggestions)
• Most importantly, how men have the perfect model of man in Jesus Christ, and how we can follow his example.
