Those popes who bear the name, "Pius," are the greatest guardians of the Church against heresy. This blog is a watchdog for modernism in the Church. In reality, outside this blog, the members of the board temper their criticisms and opinions with prudence and charity so as to help souls in their journey towards Christ. But sometimes, for the sake of their own sanity, the authors of this blog just need to blow off some steam. The result is Totus Pius.

St. Justin Martyr

Happy feast day of St. Justin Martyr. St. Justin was born around the year 100 and was raised by pagan Greek parents. He received a classical education and was especially skilled in philosophy. In his search for Truth, he eventually recognized it's fullness in Christianity. He held that the Greeks only held a part of the Truth and opened a school of Christian philosophy. He became a great Christian apologist debating pagans with Christian philosophy. He was eventually charged with the practice of unauthorized religion and was beheaded. St. Justin Martyr: defender of the faith, lover of Truth, ora pro nobis.

He worked wonders with the POPE ST PIUS I, you know. 2nd century Gnosticism and everything.

Funny how everything comes back to TOTUS PIUS.
