Carlos Duarte Costa: Testament of a Socialist Bishop examines the bishop’s life, thought, influences, and discusses his lasting legacy. In an age when the relationship between faith and politics is more hotly debated than ever, the words and witness of this extraordinary individual are as relevant, incisive and portentous as they were seventy-five years ago.
This book painstakingly reconstructs ARCHBISHOP THỤC's remarkable story: from French Indochina to the Japanese occupation; from the Communist revolution to the doomed US-backed puppet regime; from Thục’s exile to his role in Vatican II. it explains why, now more than ever, Catholics and non-Catholics alike should be aware of Sedevacantism.
Two decades before Vatican II, the Brazilian Catholic Church, or I.C.A.B., abolished Latin, celibacy, and Confessions, embraced religious freedom, and redefined the pope as just another bishop.This remarkable story has never been told before. Much archival material has been translated for the first time. The I.C.A.B. theology is explained and the exploits of its founders are revealed.
