The following are the opening words from Irenaeus's "Against Heresies". I take them as my own as the complete explanation for why the Aquinas Catholic Site exists. Everything on this site I submit for the future judgement of Holy Church, wishing to hold nothing which is not conformable in every way with the true Faith.
"Inasmuch as certain men have set the truth aside, and bring in lying words and vain genealogies, which, as the Apostle says, 'minister questions rather than godly edifying which is in faith,' and by means of their craftily-constructed plausibilities draw away the minds of the inexperienced and take them captive, I have felt constrained, my dear friend[s], to compose [or present] the following treatise[s] in order to expose and counteract their machinations."
The following is an appropriate prayer for our times.
