Get Among the Ruins: The Decline and Fall of the Roman Catholic PDF

By Paul L. Williams

This severe evaluation of the Roman Catholic Church because the pivotal alterations initiated within the Sixties through Vatican II paints a demanding photo of decline and corruption. Dr. Paul L. Williams, a self-professed Tridentine or traditionalist Catholic, strains many of the components that experience prompted the Church to endure cataclysmic losses in all facets of its lifestyles and worship in fresh many years. Williams illustrates the decline with telling facts displaying the stark distinction among the powerful variety of clergy contributors, parishes, colleges, and lively church-going Catholics in 1965 as opposed to the relatively paltry quantity this day.

The writer is extremely serious of Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis for directing the church thus far clear of its conventional teachings and for a scarcity of oversight that allowed corruption to fester. Symptomatic of this failure of management are the new pedophilia scandals, the continued monetary corruption, a homosexual prostitution ring contained in the Vatican, and felony investigations of connections among the Holy See and arranged crime.

This unflinching critique from a loyal, lifelong Catholic is a wakeup name to all Catholics to revive their church to its former degrees of ethical management and influence.
