Writings of Roman Catholic Popes, Councils, Saints, and Theologians
Today, we are living in a time of the great crisis of Faith and morals. False mercy teaches that anyone can be forgiven without repenting, sanctified without giving up sin, enter Heaven without doing the will of God. The confusion is of such magnitude that it is not only subverting the temporal sphere, but also penetrates the walls of the Church itself.
“The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer.” (Pope Pius X “Our Apostolic Mandate” August 15, 1910)
“What is really going on is a war between Christ and the Antichrist on a scale never seen before, where the survival of the Catholic faith is at stake. I repeat: we are in a battle to preserve the Catholic faith, and all the battles being fought on various fronts, even those that are so important like moral truth, are only the terrain of confrontation in a war that is much deeper, involving metaphysics and religion. The most important thing in play is faith. But faith is preserved whole and intact or it is lost. You cannot preserve just parts of it according to taste or expediency”. (La Riscossa Cristiana – Rorate translation).
“For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables.” [2Tim 4:3-4]
New Doctrines are not Catholic. They are heresy. The Catholic Church considers heresy (disagreement with Catholic doctrine) to be a crime. “All Novelty in faith is a sure mark of heresy” – St. Vincent of Lerins.

Lo, here is the sword of Goliath. . . . There is none like that, give it me. I Kings xxi, 9. SYNOPSIS: David, with God’s assistance, his only weapon a pebble, slew the giant. God gives us, as our weapon, the rosary. This has proven efficacious in the battles of the Church against heretics and […]
“We were overcome with great and bitter sorrow when We learned that a pernicious plan, by no means the first, had been undertaken, whereby the most sacred books of the Bible are being spread everywhere in every vernacular tongue, with new interpretations which are contrary to the wholesome rules of the Church, and are skillfully […]
INTRODUCTION: Le Sillon (“The Furrow”, or “The Path”) was a French political and religious movement founded by Marc Sangnier (1873 – 1950) which existed from 1894 to 1910.
