Sacred Heart League to Un-Locke America, the Church, and the World‏


Dr. John Rao, Associate Professor of History at St. John's University in New York City, and Director of the Roman Forum, has launched a new initiative to awaken Catholics in America to the full meaning of the doctrine of the Sacred Heart for the Kingship of Christ over individuals and society at large and the way in which John Locke and his teachings, so prevalent in the post-Vatican II Church, prevents this goal from ever being achieved.  Read about this new and important initiative here.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
have mercy on us.
