Following the example of St. Paul, four Catholic journalists (Atila Sinke Guimarães, Michael J. Matt, John Vennari, Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D.) make a public statement of Catholic resistance to the teachings of the Council and of the Popes that are objectively opposed to the Magisterium. The Statement of Resistance, an open letter to John Paul II, intends to be an invitation for a respectful dialogue. The work lays out an objective analysis of the consequences of ecumenism and the adaptation of the Church to the modern world, as applied since the Council. The authors affirm that this position implies neither the desire to judge the Pope or to declare the Apostolic See vacant. They base their act on Doctors of the Church, among them St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Robert Bellarmine.
The book includes the Declaration of Resistance, nine articles by the authors on the topic and 17 pages of photos illustrating the text.
Comments of Readers:
"Traditional Catholics will find this book a most welcome addition to their arsenal of understanding and apologetics for the traditional Catholic Faith. … As one who values words above pictures, I must admit the devastating effect that the selection of photographs in Part I produces."— Fr. Morrison, Review, Traditio
"I want to congratulate you for the initiative of standing publicly for the Catholic Faith. If only more did the same and if only Rome listened! Hoping that the small contribution will help you to continue the good work, I assure you of my prayers and send my blessing."— Bishop Bernard Fellay (Society of St. Pius X, Menzingen, Switzerland).
"It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on the publication of the book 'We Resist You to the Face.' It requires the courage of St. Paul the Apostle himself to disclose to the whole of Christiandom the destructive action of Christian leaders themselves against the ever old and ever new Rock of the Catholic Church. Be assured that you are not expressing the feelings, sentiments and emotions of one Catholic here and another Catholic there, but the suppressed and pent up mental agonies and feelings of, if not the majority, but at least a great number of Catholics all over the world .... Your publication of the book is a real need of the hour and times in which we live."— Fr. Pancras Christanand, M.A.; Ph. D. (Gregorian University, Rome) - Kauli, India
