    I was reading here about a nun who is defending Pius XII in her books. I've recently come across the controversy surrounding Pius XII, who is at the center of one of the latest attacks on the Church. Kinda sad given that the guy is credited with saving something like 860,000 Jewish lives during World War II. Let's just hope that some faithful Catholics get together to make a movie about this modern hero.

The author and webmaster of this site is Karen Chohrach, a convert to Catholicism who was raised as a Southern Baptist. Karen strongly believes that the Catholic Church in the United States is now, more than ever, in need of reform. By reform Karen means a return to fidelity and orthodoxy. (see article at site)

    " The sure guide for authentic Catholic teaching is from the Magisterium of the Church-that is, the bishops in union with the Pope. "The faithful...are obliged to submit to their bishops' decision, made in the name of the Church, in matters of faith and morals, and to adhere to it with a ready and respectful allegiance of mind. This loyal submission of the will and intellect must be given, in a special way, to the authentic teaching authority of the Roman Pontiff" (Vatican II Documents, "Dogmatic Constitution on the Church," paragraph 25)."
