Understand Catholic tradition and its essential role in
Christ's church throughout the ages!
Apologia for Tradition is
a powerful, well-documented defense of sacred tradition as a solution for the
modern crisis in the Church. This book demonstrates how the Catholics of
history and today are united in a timeless battle to defend tradition: a battle
that stretches from the sands of the Coliseum to the cultural arena of today's
post-Christian era. The book shows:
- The triumph of tradition over persecution and heresy
- Historical examples of the Church's methods of
adherence to our core beliefs
- How saints in every era rose to defend the holy practices
of our Catholic faith
- How evil has attempted to eradicate tradition,
“In the unhappy event of a
conflict between the "living Magisterium" and Tradition, the primacy
can be attributed to Tradition alone, for one simple reason: Tradition, which
is the "living" Magisterium considered in its universality and
continuity, is infallible in itself, whereas the so-called "living"
Magisterium, understood as the current preaching of the ecclesiastical
hierarchy, is infallible only under certain conditions."
- Roberto de Mattei
