• The Road from Hyperpapalism to Catholicism (Volume 2: Chronological Responses to an Unfolding Pontificate) by Peter Kwasniewski


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.

Praise for The Road from Hyperpapalism to Catholicism

"Avoiding extremes of 'papolatry' and antipapalism, Dr. Kwasniewski's analysis brings sorely needed balance to contemporary discussions about the role of the papacy in the Church. The second volume builds up his case by concrete reference to the past decade." —Phillip Campbell, author of the Story of Civilization series

"Dr. Kwasniewski applies hard-won principles to the various bizarre episodes of the pontificate of Francis. Above all, he shows us how Catholics ought to react to the current crisis in the Church: keeping their eyes on the prize of their eternal salvation. We owe him an enormous debt." —Charles Coulombe, author of Vicars of Christ: A History of the Popes

"With any hot issue facing Catholics-and certainly when pondering papal authority and its exercise and abuse-it's highly advisable to check with Peter Kwasniewski before rushing to your own conclusion." —Roger McCaffrey, Editor, The Traditionalist

"Dr. Kwasniewski offers an essential resource for coping with the great mystery of our times: how can recent popes, and especially Francis, do so much harm to the Mystical Body of Christ?" —Brian M. McCall, Editor-in-Chief, Catholic Family News

"Peter Kwasniewski gets to grips with the overwhelming scandal facing us today: a Pope who day by day is betraying his divine office...an enormity made possible by an exaggerated adulation of the person of the reigning Pontiff." —Henry Sire, author of The Dictator Pope

"Dr. Kwasniewski helps the reader to leave behind a widespread and unhealthy hyperpapalism... The pope is just the 'vicar,' the representative of Christ: he does not supplant Jesus Christ, and he therefore must not change the faith but preserve, clarify, and amplify it." —Monika Rheinschmitt, President, Pro Missa Tridentina
