No Crisis in the Church?

Many who are concerned today about the state of the Catholic Church point to the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).

For some the Council represents “a Second Pentecost”; to others, however, it represents “a Second Crucifixion.” For the former the latter are dissident, disobedient and even schismatic; for the latter the former are modernist, heretical and even apostate.

How is it possible that a Church Council could provoke such turmoil and such profound hostility amongst the faithful? Is it a matter of misunderstanding? Is it a matter of interpretation? Or is it a question of Dogma misrepresented and distorted?

This informative reference handbook is the first of its kind. It compares the authoritative pronouncements of the Church both before and after Vatican II, in a convenient double-column format.

At the turn of a page, the reader can judge for himself which is the correct diagnosis of today’s crisis. It presents the evidence clearly and concisely, while aggressively challenging those who declare: “There is no crisis in the Church”.

A Catechism of Christian Doctrine

“We hereby approve of this edition of the Catechism, in Our name and that of the other bishops, and prescribe its exclusive use”, wrote Cardinal Wiseman in an 1859 Synodal decree following the re-establishment of the Catholic hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850.

Popularly known as ‘the Penny Catechism’, A Catechism of Christian Doctrine was the staple tool used in schools and parishes for teaching the Faith, until it was abridged and updated after Vatican II, in 1971, to suit the New Religion.
This edition, “approved by the archbishops and bishops of England and Wales, and directed to be used in all their dioceses,” carries the 1921 imprimatur of Cardinal Bourne, Archbishop of Westminster.
Paperback, laminated card cover, pocket-size 5″ x 7″, 60pp.
