From this short extract of the Constitution we must conclude that the Australian Marian Academy of the Immaculate Conception (AMAIC for short) will pledge its members not only to spearhead or support any genuine attempts at renovations of Catholic education but of all education in Australia.
To realise its goals and ideals, the Australian Marian Academy of the Immaculate Conception has set up its own modest publishing firm, CFM Publications.
Here are the titles of some of the books published by CFM Publications over the years, together with a short resume of each. Some are available for download in PDF format.
Call for Mary.
Since the day of the first publication, of a little booklet in honour of Our Blessed Lady entitled “The Call For Mary”, and subtitled: ‘Echoes of Ancient Centuries’ in 1980, the name ‘Call for Mary’ Publications stuck.
The AMAIC also has a section for downloading articles and books which appear on this site. Iincluding the very popular and inspiring books "A Short Life of St Joseph" and "The Catholic Mass".
Teilhard de Chardin.
This web site features detailed criticisms of the works of the late Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.
The enthusiasm for Piere Teilhard de Chardin began in earnest shortly after 1920 when his first confidential essay against the Dogma of Original Sin landed by mistake in Rome where it caused a storm of indignation. All his subsequent articles have been clandestinely circulated and his books have been printed since his sudden death in 1955 by non-catholic and even anti-catholic publishers. It is from these sources that the ‘theology’ of Teilhard de Chardin has been distilled, and is being offered here to a wider reading public.
All theology, even theology so-called, is rooted in a philosophy from which it derives its form. In the study presented here, the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin is being examined in the light of the theology that sprang from it as they both lie expressed in the Dutch Catechism.
The AMAIC has a second web site which we call the AMAIC Bookroom. It features articles on Catholic philosophy; theology; apologetics; biblical studies; science and pseudo science as well as an analysis of the modern new age ‘church’, all of which can be downloaded or read on line.
In Defence of the Novus Ordo Missae.
In his first encyclical Aeterni Patris Pope Leo XIII taught the Universal Church that to “contend forever with error” was to “imitate the Charity of Christ.” We introduce this section with a serious effort to do just that: by defending the Novus Ordo Missae of His Holiness Pope Paul VI.”
