Rome and Civil Liberty by James Aitken Wylie

Sermons On The Gospels Advent To Trinity by Ernst Pfatteicher

The First Page Of The Bible by Frederic Bettex

“The first book of Moses, called Genesis, tells us whence we come; the last book of the Bible, the Revelation of St. John, shows us whither we go. It is true, men who have considered themselves wise above that which is written, have tried in every way to gainsay this divine answer; and a false reasoning at the present day proclaims from the housetops that science has done away with the former belief concerning the origin of man, and that we are not created by God, but descended from the monkey.

The Catholic Church in Hitler's Mein Kampf by Leo Lehmann

“Hitler’s Mein Kampf embodies all the aims and principles against liberal democratic processes reiterated in all the important papal encyclicals of post-Reformation Catholicism.
