- In 1968 Pope Paul VI issued an encyclical on the regulation of birth called, in Latin, Humanae Vitae. This document was very controversial since many people were apparently expecting the Catholic Church to change her teaching and accept birth control. Of course, the Church did NOT do this. In this study, you will see how the Holy Father's words concerning the consequences of accepting birth control turned out to be prophetic. This book has four chapters/lessons and includes answers.

- CSS is pleased to bring you this short study series exploring the documents of the Second Vatican Council. Most Catholics are familiar with Vatican II and have likely heard the phrase, "…in the spirit of Vatican II…". However, few Catholics have actually read the documents. Consequently, the "Spirit of Vatican II" has come to mean many different things depending upon the source. We encourage all Catholics to take the time to study these important documents for themselves to discover the ideas that accurately reflect the Council teachings.

6 Week Study Guide with accompanying Video Lectures on DVD, with commentary by Mike Aquilina and Teaching Videos presented by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ. Every year on the first Sunday of Lent, the Gospel reading is about Jesus' going off to the wilderness, or desert, for forty days. On Ash Wednesday, we begin our own forty days in the desert. This penitential season of Lent is an intense time of spiritual renewal. The Church especially invites us to pray, fast and give alms as means of expressing our utter dependence on God who through the waters of Baptism shares His very life with us.
