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.

Happy Independence Day

We impart our apostolic nod to the United States of America, and to her citizenry who celebrate the 230th anniversary of a great nation founded under God. May she ever return to the noble mission ordained by her forefathers.



We thought we would also share a most interesting fact: out of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, one was a Catholic - Charles Carroll of Maryland. He was the cousin of Archbishop John Carroll of Baltimore , the first bishop of the United States. Charles was instrumental in bringing Catholics respect in the American political sphere, and he was also the longest-surviving signer of the Declaration. Read more here and here.
