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."
"Between heresy and schism there is this difference, that heresy perverts dogma, while schism, by rebellion against the bishop, separates from the Church. Nevertheless there is no schism which does not trump up a heresy to justify its departure from the Church."
