This site was conceived by a group of faithful Catholics who have become increasingly concerned about the attacks from within the Church on Pope Francis and his teachings. Over the entirety of his pontificate, he has been accused by radical traditionalists and dogmatic rigorists of deliberately spreading confusion, teaching error, and even being a heretic.
While the group challenging Francis’ pontificate is relatively small, their ranks include prominent laypeople, priests, bishops, and even cardinals. Many of Francis’ fiercest critics have strong voices in the media: in print, on television, and on the web. In many cases, these critics have anointed themselves as the arbiters of orthodoxy, and have accused those who continue to stand with the pope of holding views that dissent from the teaching of the Church.
Because Francis’s critics are such a small faction, many of their accusations and assertions have gone unchecked. They complain that their concerns are serious, but they are dismissed and their points are not addressed by those who support the pope.
The authors at this site have decided to take up their challenge, both by providing links to resources from other sites and by providing original essays that argue in favor of the orthodoxy and faithfulness of the Holy Father. Additionally, we’ll write about the major themes and important topics that surround the Church, especially in light of the pontificate of Pope Francis.
Where Peter is, there is the Church.
