Although Pope Francis has brought controversy, confusion, and chaos to the Catholic Church, good fruits of his pontificate is already apparent: a long-overdue reassessment of the papal office itself, and a newfound willingness to call out derelictions of duty. The first volume of The Road from Hyperpapalism to Catholicism provides the theological-spiritual reassessment; the second volume, Chronological Responses to an Unfolding Pontificate, critiques the deviations, offering a record of responses to notable events in the Bergoglian reign such as the release of Amoris Laetitia, the Abu Dhabi declaration, the death penalty revision, the Pachamama debacle, and synods rigged for the advancement of progressivist ideology. If the Church has entered a new phase in the unfolding of Modernism, the appropriate reaction of the faithful is nonetheless clear: not lamentation or hostility, but renewed commitment to tradition, prayer and good works.

"Dr. Kwasniewski helps the reader to leave behind a widespread and unhealthy hyperpapalism...
