A CHRONICLE OF CATHOLIC TRADITION
This series is a historical chronicle, albeit not as in-depth as we would like yet thorough enough to give the reader a good scope on the History of Holy Mother Church, her Sovereign Pontiffs, Saints, Fathers and Doctors of the Church through the ages. We sugarcoat nothing in researching the Popes and if history shows a Pope was not as holy or as effective as many might have thought, we chronicle that as well. We show how the Church has always been a leading light in the world as Christ intended from the very beginning and how she shaped history.
