The Russian Church And The Papacy "Vladimir Soloviev's true legacy consists of three simple propositions.
Jesus Christ instituted the universal jurisdiction and infallible teaching authority of the Papacy as a perpetual gift to His Church
Apart from the Papacy, the Eastern churches will always remain what they are now: ethnic, national churches, totally independent and disunited
Only in union with Rome can the separated Eastern churches become truly Catholic
Seldom, if ever, has this Catholic doctrine of the Church been stated more eloquently, more persuasively in an apologetic context than by Vladimir Soloviev. It is for this very reason that Catholic Answers felt it necessary to bring The Russian Church and the Papacy back into print, and recover this valuable resource for generations to come."
"We run no risk of deceiving ourselves in considering a Superior Intelligence the author of all things, in referring to it those splendors of the heavens which aroused our thoughts; and finally we are ready to understand and accept the traditional formula: God, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth."
