Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland Audiobook

Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland

Author: Christopher R. Browning Narrator: Kevin Gallagher Release Date: April 2020

“A remarkable—and singularly chilling—glimpse of human behavior. . .This meticulously researched book...represents a major contribution to the literature of the Holocaust.'—Newsweek  Now available in audio for the first time, Christopher R. Browning’s shocking account of how a unit of average middle-aged Germans became the cold-blooded murderers of tens of thousands of Jews—now with a new afterword and additional photographs. Ordinary Men is the true story of Reserve Police Battalion 101 of the German Order Police, which was responsible for mass shootings as well as round-ups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. Browning argues that most of the men of  RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, rather, ordinary middle-aged, working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions. Very quickly three groups emerged within the battalion: a core of eager killers, a plurality who carried out their duties reliably but without initiative, and a small minority who evaded participation in the acts of killing without diminishing the murderous efficiency of the battalion whatsoever. While this book discusses a specific Reserve Unit during WWII, the general argument Browning makes is that most people succumb to the pressures of a group setting and commit actions they would never do of their own volition.   Ordinary Men is a powerful, chilling, and important work with themes and arguments that continue to resonate today.   Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

The Passion: Reflections on the Suffering and Death of Jesus Christ Audiobook

The Passion: Reflections on the Suffering and Death of Jesus Christ

Author: Paul Thigpen Narrator: Catherine Fowler Sample, Kevin Gallagher, Paul Thigpen Release Date: April 2019

In this devotional treasure, you'll find forty daily reflections on the passion and death of Our Lord. Each day's reflection-suitable for Lent or for any time of the year-includes a scriptural text, a meditation, a brief prayer, and an excerpt from the visions of two celebrated Catholic mystics: Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) and Venerable Maria de Agreda (1602-1665). In these reflections, you'll watch with Jesus as He prays in the Garden of Gethsemane ... grieve beside Him as He stands trial ... climb with Him on the way to Calvary ... mourn with His Blessed Mother at the foot of the Cross. You'll also ponder the roles of other figures in this sorrowful drama: not only Mary, but also Peter and Judas, Herod and Pilate, Simon the Cyrene and Dismas the Good Thief ... and, of course, Satan, whose hope of victory over Jesus is dashed in the end. Do you want to advance from virtue to virtue, from grace to grace? Are you seeking the entire sanctification of your soul? These are the rewards, insists St. Bonaventure, of those who meditate frequently on the sufferings of Christ.

Author: Philip F. Lawler Narrator: Kevin Gallagher Release Date: December 2018

The sex-abuse scandal, which erupted anew in 2018, poses the greatest challenge that the Catholic Church has faced since the Reformation. In The Smoke of Satan, veteran Catholic journalist Philip Lawler explains why the crisis is even more severe than when it first commanded headlines in 2002, and how the failure of Church leaders goes all the way to the Vatican.In this unflinching look at the crisis threatening the Church and her members, Lawler:Shows how the sex-abuse scandal is not a question of pedophilia, but of homosexual activity within the clergy.Explains how Catholic bishops have developed a habit of covering up serious problems, to avoid the serious divisions that have developed within the faith since Vatican II.Demonstrates a catastrophic rupture in Church unity, causing a breakdown in morale and discipline among priests, bishops, and laity, paving the way for the current crisis.Reveals the growth of a faction within the Vatican that is ready to make peace with secularism.Details the charges in the explosive "Vigano testimony,"- and the efforts by Vatican officials including Pope Francis himself to ward off a thorough investigation.Concludes with a program for reform, led by faithful lay Catholics, demanding a new policy of candor and a forthright proclamation of Church teaching.This crisis, brought about by the failures of corrupt and cowardly bishops and clerics, has been allowed to fester long enough. It is well past time for serious action to be taken at every level before more lives are ruined, more souls are lost, and more fractures divide the Church.In this book, Lawler details the problems besetting the Church...and lays out a clear plan to overcome them in order that the Church and Her members may once again thrive and bring souls to Christ.

Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory Audiobook

Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory

Author: Gerard J. M. Van Den Aardweg Narrator: Kevin Gallagher Release Date: October 2018

After a week of hearing ghostly noises, a man is visited in his home by the spirit of his mother, dead for three decades. She reproaches him for his dissolute life and begs him to have Masses said in her name. Then she lays her hand on his sleeve, leaving an indelible burn mark, and departs...A Lutheran minister, no believer in purgatory, is the puzzled recipient of repeated visitations from "demons" who come to him seeking prayer, consolation, and refuge in his little German church. But pity for the poor spirits overcomes the man's skepticism, and he marvels at what kind of departed souls could belong to Christ and yet suffer still....Hungry Souls recounts these stories and many other trustworthy, Church-verified accounts of earthly visitations from the dead in purgatory. Included in this edition is a brief audio tour of the "Museo del Purgatorio" (Museum of Purgatory) in Rome, which contains relics of encounters with the Holy Souls: numerous evidences of handprints burned into clothing, books and artifacts - burn marks that cannot be explained by natural means or duplicated by artificial ones.
