by Father Nicholas Gruner
Who, thinkest thou, is a faithful and wise servant? (Matt. 24:45)
What does it mean to be a Catholic — or, more importantly, to be a faithful and obedient Catholic? Is a “good” Catholic one who automatically believes or does whatever the Pope and bishops say, even if it is the opposite of what was taught by the Popes and bishops of prior days?
Pope John Paul II’s words at Fatima on May 13, 2000 suggest a bold answer to these questions. Quoting Apoc. 12:4, the Pope said:
“The message of Fatima is a call to conversion, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the ‘dragon’ whose ‘tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth.’”
Catholics today must understand the limits of the Pope and bishops’ authority. The faithful must study and know the Faith for themselves, and they must understand the sources of Catholic dogma — especially the solemn and infallible definitions of Faith. Every Catholic must know how to distinguish the Ordinary and Universal Magisterium — which never contradicts either the definitions of Faith or the constant teachings of past ages — from the heretical ravings of Modernist clergy.
This book will show the reader how to do these things, and how prior generations of Catholics dealt with such times of crisis in the Church as we see today. This book is the survival guide that you need, in this worst crisis in the history of the Church!
