This is a beautiful print depicting The Last Supper after Leonarda da Vinci. Christ is shown at the center with a magnificent halo as He reveals the miracle of the Eucharist. The Apostles are seated to either side talking amongst themselves in alarm. The print is vibrant and full of energy.
This is a stunning portrait of Christ. Our Lord is shown giving a benediction with one hand while pointing to His Sacred Heart with the other. This is a highly detailed piece: Christ’s Sacred Heart radiates light while wrapped in thorns and topped in a flaming cross. The wounds of the Passion can be seen in His hands as gazes out with an expression of profound love. It is very moving.
Condition: The frame has some scratches to be expected with age. Please See Pictures.
This is a gorgeous piece of religious art. The image shows the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ in her arms. The print is housed in a stunning frame with decorative reverse painted glass that serves to enhance the image.
This is a vintage publication on Catholic teaching. It is a booklet that discusses the Catholic arguments against contraception. It is presented in the format of the Baltimore Catechism with questions put forth followed by the Church’s answers. This was published in 1949 well before the encyclical Humanae Vitae (Pope Paul VI, 1968) proving that this is a long-standing church teaching.
This is a wonderful antique explanation of Catholic teaching. The Catechism of the Council of Trent, also known as the Roman Catechism, produced in 1566 is the oldest summary of the doctrines and teachings of the Catholic Church. This edition includes the entire Roman Catechism with helpful side-bar notations.
Condition: There is a small faded area on the cover. Please See Pictures.
This is a fantastic in-depth history of a religious convent. Also known as the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the convent was founded by Mother Mary Xavier Mehegan in 1859. The Sisters of Charity established the College of Saint Elizabeth, which was the first four-year women's college in New Jersey, as well as parish schools, academies, hospitals, a day nursery, orphanages, a home for the incurably ill, and a residence for working women.
This boxed set consists of 3 volumes in excellent, like-new condition.
This is a wonderful devotional book. It is a complete history of veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mother.
Original blurb for this book:
The Book of Mary might well be subtitled "The Quest for the Historical Mother of Jesus," for this book is a great author's search for all that is known, from the testimony of contemporaries, ancient texts and later interpretations, about the life and days of "the most appealing of all figures in the Gospels," the woman chosen to be the Mother of Christ.
Complete in content, beautifully designed and illustrated, the book deals with all the recorded facts about Mary, based primarily on the relatively few occasions in which she is written about in the New Testament by Matthew, Luke and John, and the many occasions in which she appears in early post-Biblical writings. Further, The Book of Mary reproduced actual apocryphal and pseudo-epigraphical texts, little known to the average reader, making it a definite study covering material relatively untouched in any other popular work, and presenting its glowing subject, as one advance reader said, "succinctly, clearly and authoritatively."
Condition: The cover is a bit faded. Please See Pictures.

This is a stunning antique religious brooch. It is the scene of the apparition of The Blessed Virgin Mary in Lourdes, France. The Madonna can be seen in the grotto entrance with Saint Bernadette kneeling before her and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in the background. This scene is on a central medallion resting against a beautiful filigree background. Absolutely gorgeous.
The Apparition at Lourdes
On February 11, 1858, a 14-year-old girl named Bernadette Soubirous witnessed the first of 18 visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at a grotto near Lourdes, France. Soubirous described the lady as wearing a white dress, an equally white veil, a blue belt, and a yellow rose on each foot. Across her arm she carried a rosary.
In her messages at Lourdes, Our Lady announced that she is the Immaculate Conception, and she stressed the need for penance and for prayer for sinners.

The full title is “Paroissien Romain Tres-Complet” and it contains many daily prayers, litanies, prayers for confession and communion, as well as the Mass in Latin with the propers for feast days and all Sundays from Christmas through Pentecost.
The book is bound in black leather with gilded pages and decorative detailing. It has 1094 pages with many illustrations.
Condition: The binding is still tight but the cover corners show wear. Please See Pictures.
