Weathering the Storm: Book Responds to Scandals

Weathering the Storm: Book Responds to Scandals

With the Catholic Church mired in sexual-abuse scandals, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) is now releasing a book that shows Catholics how they can react to the climate of intense emotion and confusion that warps the debate and hinders a true solution to the crisis.

The book, I Have Weathered Other Storms: A Response to the Scandals and Democratic Reforms that Threaten the Catholic Church, is the work of the TFP’s Committee on American Issues which put together the research and observations. It is published by the Pennsylvania-based Western Hemisphere Cultural Society.

In announcing the publication, TFP Vice President Thomas McKenna noted that the 192-page book furnishes a much needed perspective.

“The book is not a report but a response,” Mr. McKenna affirms. “It is an arsenal of Church doctrines and teachings and a veritable broadside against those who would use this crisis to promote reforms that contradicts Church teaching.”

Some topics discussed in I Have Weathered Other Storms include:

How God permits scandal yet gives graces to fortify the faithful.

Why giving in to scandal is a type of spiritual suicide.

Why the presence of sinners among the faithful or clergy, does not taint the holiness of the Church.

Why the Church must be monarchical and hierarchical not democratic.

How reformists use sexual-abuse victims to foster their own agenda.

How media reporters employ shoddy theology.

How reformists have declared the death of the hierarchical Church and labeled the sacraments as “magic” and priests as “magicians.”

How reformists apply Marxist liberation theology tenets to the scandals.

And much, much more.

See why Fr. John Trigilio called this book “an erudite, succinct and accurate diagnosis of the current sex scandal climate in Catholic America.”

Both practical and theological, I Have Weathered Other Storms is a key to understanding and responding to one of the worst crisis in American Catholic history.
