If you haven't seen our interview with Bishop Athanasius Schneider which we rolled out last week, we'd like to strongly suggest you view it. The response from viewers so far has been over the moon. It is so refreshing to hear a successor of the Apostles actually speak like one — which is why we'd like to keep the Bp. Schneider bandwagon rolling along here by letting you know about a booklet on the family written by him as well as Santa Rosa California bishop Robert Vasa.
Distribution is being handled by our good friends at TFP — Tradition, Family and Property — and here's the really good news: The book is free.
You hear correctly. The book costs nothing to you. If you'd like a copy, all you have to do is click on the provided link and follow the directions. There is a small $5 charge for shipping domestically and $10 internationally, as to be expected, but the book is free. TFP only had 500 copies to provide to us, so when they are gone, that's it — unless more English copies are printed and provided to us. (Update: We are sold-out, all 500 copies have been ordered.)
It's very well done and answers 100 questions about the Church's teaching on marriage and family in the face of the corruption going on in some quarters of the Church to give the impression that this year's upcoming Synod on the Family in Rome is going to change the teaching or discipline.
Men like Bp. Schneider and Bp. Vasa are doing their part to ensure that impression is corrected STAT! And we here at Church Militant are more than excited to help them in that sacred duty. In our interview with Bishop Schneider, he said that lay people must now step up.
Again, if you'd like to watch the interview, you can view the whole almost one-hour interview by signing up for a Premium membership today. Likewise you can just click on the link and listen to the podcast for free. And if you'd like to wait for the free release of the video next month, that too is an option.
These are exciting times to be alive. Sanctity is so much more easily within our grasp owing to the fact that the intensity of the world's hatred for the Church is increasing. This affords the laity, as well as good priests and bishops, the opportunity to witness to Our Blessed Lord in all sorts of difficult circumstances. What a blessing indeed to be alive and slug it out for the Church.
And whoever said being Catholic would be dull?
