The Resurrection of the Roman Catholic Church: A guide to the Traditional Roman Catholic movement
For nearly twenty centuries, the Roman Catholic Church withstood all the currents of change and history and maintained a closely guarded orthodoxy which has always served as the basis and center of all Christianity. Yet, it is as if all of that has been just arbitrarily swept away in the few years since Vatican II. Given what the Church has always taught about itself being indefectible, how could this have happened? Did that Council have something to do with that terrible loss of faith? Can the real Catholicism be found today, and if so, where? The shocking answer to this, once seen and truly understood, is as every bit as glorious as the original resurrection of Christ Himself, a tremendous source of faith and inspiration. It is a broad-based, longstanding miracle passing right before our eyes, have we but the Grace to see it for what it is.
Most Concise Compendium on Traditional Catholicism Anywhere!
By Michael Cain "Editor, The Daily Catholic" - June 7, 2005
Until now there has not been a compendium gathering the tents of the various tribes of Tradition that so clearly explains the trials and tribulations of Traditional Catholics as Griff L. Ruby's "The Resurrection of the Roman Catholic Church."
It is subtitled "A Guide to the Traditional Catholic Movement" and indeed it is. From the Preface and Introduction through twelve chapters, the Epilogue and three Appendixes - which answer practically any question anyone could muster - Griff takes the reader on a journey of common sense, dispelling myths, rumors and suppositions in a totally charitable Christian manner that avers the true sensus Catholicus , leaving little doubt what truly loyal Catholics must do to keep the Faith.
Griff is like that dependable ecclesial weatherman, assuring us that the Son will rise again and shine on all who cling to the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church, despite the storms and dark clouds. Those clouds which have shadowed so... read more
Quite interesting, but must be read cautiously
By A Customer - May 23, 2003
I would like to rate this book with five stars, nevertheless I can't do that: Griff Ruby apparently falls in the sedevacantist trap, confusing the infallibility and the indefectibility of the Church with the infallibility and indefectibility of her members. One thing hasn't any relationship with the other: not reminding the traditional Catholic teaching about the issue, he seems to forget that even the Pope, outside the strict limits of his infallibility - ex cathedra teachings about faith and morals - is also subjected to error and sin and effectively can err and sin. We can quote the historical examples of Liberius, Honorius or John XXII. So despite their misdeeds and wrongs, Paul VI - probably, the worst Pope the Church ever had in twenty centuries - was a reliable Pope, and John Paul II - not a Saint Pius X at all - is a legitimate Pope. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, they never mixed their infallibility with their errors. Otherwise, the book is quite interesting and traces a... read more
Resurrection of the Roman Catholic Church
By Mary Hookway - February 1, 2007
This is a very well researched and readable account of the last forty years of turmoil in the Catholic Church. Although the author takes the sedavacantist position he is sympathetic to the veiws of all Catholics and provides the reader with solid explantions and persausive arguments.
This book has the strength of a true Traditionalist writer with out the venom we often find in this genre.
