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.

Sophia Press

There are many good and worthy causes in the world; one in particular has reached our ears tonight.

Sophia Institute Press is well known for its fine Catholic publications. It publishes such books as Aquinas's Shorter Summa, Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayerbook, and numerous other spiritual and practical guides for Catholics of all ages and walks of life.

It was with great sadness we heard that the small company has fallen into financial troubles. In an email sent recently (which can be read here: Publisher John Barger lamented that the Press has had to stop printing a number of books in order to stay in business.

Take a minute to read his email and maybe help - you might what to get that copy of The Aquinas Catechism before it's too late. We know we will.

We tip our tiara to Pius V for bringing to our attention The Aquinas Catechism.

I hadn't heard that - I'll have to stock up on my favorite, Holiness for Housewives and Other Working Women by Dom Hubert VanZeller.
I've given it to almost all of my friends and it's a standard bridal shower/baby gift for me!
