From the moment when Loreto was approached with the proposal to put into print the articles submitted for the Festschrift in honor of Dr. Hickson's 70th birthday I was intrigued, since I have long treasured a rare copy of the Festschrift issued in honor of Hilaire Belloc; the very books referenced in a footnote in this book. Once I had completed my first readiing of the full manuscript I agreed to publish it under the title A Catholic Witness in our Time, since that title precisely describes the variety and depth of the works presented here.
The late 20th and early 21st centuries have been an era of great trial for faithful Catholics. Decay, collapse, self-inflicted auto-demolition and liturgical suicide (to use the words of two 20th century popes), seeming defeat, and (dare we say it) nascent resurrection have characterised our years. This collection of articles is as good a sampling of thought from some of the best Catholic minds and warriors of this period of the Church's history, as may be found anywhere. It will stand for many years as a testament to what we have witnessed, how we have witnessed, and why we have witnessed in our days of exile.
