Announcing: On the Marks of the Church by St. Robert Bellarmine now in print

On_the_notes_of_the_Church_front2This is one of the main reasons I have not posted anything in so long, the need to get the first book of the Bellarmine project complete! After going through all of my editor’s corrections, I had to do another read through, which takes a lot of time. Basically I am doing the work that in a traditional publishing company would be done by 5 or six different people, not just the translating, but post editing, corrections, cover, layout, and marketing. Now I am working on completing his Septuagesima Sermons, and then back to De Romano Pontifice. In the meantime I hope to return to semi-regular posting. Enjoy!

St. Robert Bellarmine was not only the most prolific apologist of the 17th century, but of all time! Yet the loss of Latinity has relegated his valuable work to obscurity. Here at Mediatrix Press, we have proposed to change that.

Therefore, we have produced the first ever translation of St. Robert’s “On the Marks of the Church” into English, translated by Ryan Grant, the translator of the Canisius Catechism. In this valuable work, Bellarmine lays out no less than 15 Marks of the true Church, which are all developed from the 4 given by the Creed of the Council of Constantinople (second half of what we call the Nicene Creed). Bellarmine contrasts these marks with the marks posed by Protestant teaching, so as to show where the true Church really is. It is a short read, at 135 pages, but is beautiful and hard hitting on every point. A segment describing some miracles and anti-miracles at the end is especially enjoyable.

This book would not be possible without the kind donations made to the Bellarmine Project! For more information, or to donate, visit our Bellarmine Page.

Thank you and God bless our readers!

    Just finished reading it. Very good. Thank you. Very interesting, especially when he blasted the ‘reformists’. Also, after I had purchased 2 copies, I took one to my Bible study group, to give to the instructor. She was so excited, saying that she had just finished reading about it not 20 minutes ago. I don’t believe in coincidences. It was just meant to be. Thank you again for your hard work.

      Awesome! Thank you. As many hands and eyes that it passed through before I published it, I was still nervous that there was going to be some major problem, much like when you take an important test and you’re not sure what the grade will be. If you can, please leave a review on Amazon. I do believe, just with the support and the minor miracles I have experienced while working on this project, that God wants this done.
