's director, John Pacheco, had an article published in Catholic Answer's This Rock magazine on the significance of Caesarea Philippi to the papacy. John explores the historical background to the area where Jesus conferred primary authority on St. Peter, and offers a unique angle on the geographical relevance to the Catholic teaching on the Papacy. Check out the April 2005 edition of This Rock and get a new angle on the primacy of Peter!!! The edition that was eventually published can be read here.

"This article was originally published in Love One Another Magazine (Spring, 2003 Edition), a Catholic magazine dedicated to promoting and preserving Catholic youth and family. It is a rich and wonderful magazine which appeals to the whole Catholic community. Wonderful articles affirming the culture of life are interspersed among inspiring personal testimonials as well as edifying accounts of the saints of our holy faith, not to mention solid apologetic articles like the one featured above. This magazine is simply a lightning bolt from heaven, designed to make a real effort at converting people to the Catholic faith. Paradoxically, it's both hard hitting, yet gentle. If you don't subscribe to any Catholic periodical or you only have room for only one, then get this one! You simply cannot put it down."

"It is an ideal tool of evangelization (…) In my diocese in Ukraine, the Russian-language edition is of great importance in advancing the spiritual formation of our society, influencing the consciences, hearts, and ideological outlook of many. We use it as a prayer book as well as a religious knowledge resource. Its articles give us hope and strength in difficult situations. They point out and warn against dangers, and teach the people how to love God and their neighbor. Many thanks for your missionary activity. We look forward to reading future issues in the hope that they will introduce people to the Good News of Love. May the magazine become a landmark of the Universal Church in the East."

Staff Apologist John Pacheco revisits the issue and provides a modest yet cogent elucidation of the Catholic defense of why the case against Honorius is pretty flimsy. After reading this short apologetic, you'll understand why the Pinata is still intact.
