Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

Adam, JOHN, a distinguished preacher and a strenuous opponent of Calvinists and Jansenists, b. at Limoges in 1608; d. at Bordeaux, May 12, 1684. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1622. He wrote “The Triumph of the Blessed Eucharist“; “A Week’s Controversy on the Sacrament of the Altar”; “Calvin Defeated by Himself”; “The Tomb of Jansenism”; “An Abridgement of the Life of St. Francis Borgia”; Lenten sermons; some books of devotion; and translations of hymns. His views on St. Augustine brought him into collision with Cardinal Noris who attacked Father Adam in his “Vindiciae Augustinianae”. A book by Noel de Lalanne also assailed what is called” the errors, calumnies, and scandalous invectives which the Jesuit Father Adam has uttered in a sermon, on the second Thursday of Lent, in the Church of St. Paul.”
