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."
"Behold, for a thousand years the pictures of your forefathers holding rosaries in their hands have stood in this church."
~ Cardinal Klesl, to the citizens of Sankt Polten (Lower Austria) during the Reformation, explaining the historic and ancient nature of Catholic praxis.
