Frustrated by the ambiguous pronouncements coming from Rome? Worried that this never-ending parade of synods has the potential to play havoc with the true teachings of the Church? Concerned that Pope Francis might be saying some stuff which simply doesn’t square with two thousand years of consistent Church teaching?
Yeah, us too. Hank Igitur’s been reading a new book by Dr. Taylor Marshall which does a pretty decent job of putting this whole situation into a long-term historical perspective. He offers a strategy for prayerfully (and charitably) dealing with this crisis. Hank’s 100% onboard with this approach and he’s willing to explain it to you in (possibly tedious) detail!

Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Catholic Church From Within by Dr. Taylor Marshall is available at Amazon.com or through Sophia Institute Press. The book makes a pretty darn solid case that our present crisis doesn’t have its beginning with the election of Pope Francis, the suppression of the Latin Mass in the late ’60’s/early ’70’s, or even the Vatican II! The crisis began well over a century earlier. Fascinating stuff!
The document Hank mentions which can help you cut through some of the confusion when it comes to getting the real deal on Church doctrine is this: “Declaration of the Truths Relating to Some of the Most Common Errors in the Life of the Church of Our Time.” It’s only eight pages but it gives you an easy to read no-nonsense summary of authentic Church teaching, clearing up some points that might have become, umm, well–a tad murky let’s just say–over the past few years.
