The Anti-Modernist Reader, Volume 1: The Papacy (hardback)


From the back cover of the book:

“And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Mt. 16:18) On the authority of these words of God, the First Truth, it is of faith that the Roman Pontiffs, the successors of St. Peter, cannot promulgate to the Catholic Church a religion substantially different from that revealed and established by Christ. For this would mean that the gates of hell would have prevailed against His church, built upon the rock of Peter, and would imply the metaphysical impossibility that God, the infinite Truth, was either deceived Himself or has deceived us. If the religion that emanated from the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) is substantially different from Catholicism as taught prior to it by the Catholic Church, it follows that the promulgators of this new religion could not have been true popes enjoying the authority of Christ, but that, notwithstanding any appearance to the contrary, both they and the hierarchy under them are nothing else than false shepherds attempting to promulgate and foist upon Catholics a false religion. The articles collected in this volume, written by Bp. Donald Sanborn, Rector of Most Holy Trinity Seminary, Fr. Anthony Cekada, late Assistant Pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Church, and other clergy, succeed in their main purpose of proving beyond any doubt, by strict theological argumentation, confirmed by a wealth of ineluctable historical evidence, that the religion that emanated from the said Vatican Council is indeed substantially different from Catholicism, and as such to be utterly rejected by the faithful. The reader is clearly shown how the only Catholic reaction to the present crisis is to “stand fast and hold the traditions ” (2 Thes. 2:14), remaining faithful to the Catholic Faith as taught and practiced by the Catholic Church before Vatican II, until Divine Providence should give us once again a true pope.
