Catholic Therapy

1. How do I know which books or tapes are right for me?
If you are new to Dr. Baars and Dr. Terruwe's work, Born Only Once is a good place to start. Suzanne Baars tape set, "Made In His Image" is also a good place to start. If you would like an in-depth discussion of Emotional Deprivation Disorder, please read Healing the Unaffirmed. For questions and answers about the emotional life, Feeling and Healing Your Emotions is written in an easy to understand fashion. See our book description page for further information.

THE SAINT OF OBEDIENCE PADRE PIO

Padre Pio's obedience must, of course, be read in the light of St. Thomas Aquinas's:

"It is written: 'We ought to obey God rather than men.[Acts 5:29].' Now sometimes the things commanded by superiors [including popes] are against God. Therefore, superiors are not to be obeyed in all things."

-This was the last letter Padre Pio ever wrote. I am sure Padre Pio would say the same thing Lucia said, "He who is not with the Pope is not with God." Or Faustina who was told by Christ, "The devil can imitate humility but he cannot imitate obedience."

-Padre Pio's holiness is so extraordinary that it might even be frightening. He is the Simon of Cyrene of this century. His stigmata are the proof, but also his very long days in the confessional. And then his nights dedicated to penance, prayer, struggles with the devil. This is his mysticism of expiation.

Rosary Solves All Problems: No Matter how Difficult of Spiritual, Personal life or Nations

The rosary was given to save the world!

The following text is taken from an interview with Sister Lucia, (one of the Fatima visionaries), by Father Fuentes in December 26, 1957

"Look, Father, the Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given new efficacy in the recitation of the Holy Rosary. She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families in the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves."

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen:

"If you wish to convert anyone to the fullness of the knowledge of Our Lord and to His Mystical Body, then teach him the Rosary. One of two th…

Rosary Halted and Routed Nuclear Bomb, Communist and Islamic Invaders

1571 - The Battle of Lepanto


The victory at Lepanto is the most famous and important of the military victories through the Rosary.

On October 7, 1571 the Turk's attempted to invade Christian Europe at Lepanto on the coast of Greece.

The Pope asked Catholics to pray the Rosary with the intention that the Turk's attack would fail.

The Christians were out numbered 3 to 1.

Thanks to the Rosary prayers and against all odds, the Christians were victorious, sinking 200 Turkish ships and killing 50,000 of their men.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is now celebrated on October 7th every year in memory of this miraculous victory.

This famed battle inspired G.K. Chesterton, a renowned author to write the poem entitled, "Lepanto" chronicling the exciting events of that day.

You can also listen to the story of Lepanto in the brand new CD set Lepanto: Battle That Saved The West. Christopher Check tells the exhilarating story of Lepanto, fir…
