Loyal Jesuit Theologian who has become a giant in defending the Faith in his innumerable writings and lectures

    Today we bring you the 36th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Father John Anthony Hardon, the 85 year-old Jesuit Theologian who has become legendary in scholastic circles for his total allegiance to the Church. He has written countless books and articles, been a lecturer, professor and spiritual director for over half a century, leaving a legacy of Catholicity that rivals anyone else in the Church today. His goal of leading the faiithful to Heaven he owes to his devoted Mother, who taught him to kneel before he walked and he has never forgotten that God is first in his life.

The Magisterium of the Church

"He who hears you hears Me, and he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him Who sent Me."

Luke 10: 16

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa exposes the false magisterium that has cropped up in which they challenge indirectly the True Magisterium of the Church by doing an end run to quote all those dissenters without ever acknowledging the truths of Scripture and the Sovereign Pontiff. They say misery loves company and in this the liberals wallow as they try to pull others down to their heretical way of thinking. Pat shows through the Word that what Jesus decreed to the Apostles still holds today and that the Holy Spirit may be present in all, but not equally and is first and foremost in His fulness in the Vicar of Christ and the successors of the Apostles who have composed the True Magisterium of the Church for close to the past 2000 years.

A new magisterium?


"Do you think that I came to give peace upon the earth? No, I tell you, but division. For henceforth in one house five will be divided, three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against his father; mother against daughter and daughter against the mother; mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

Luke 12: 51-53
