Introduction by Michael J. Matt
As a Christendom College alumnus (as well as father of a recent Christendom College student, 2015), I feel obliged to add my personal endorsement to Dr. Russell’s defense of the College.
Over the years, I’ve expressed my disagreements with my alma mater from time to time (chief among them being what I consider to be inadequate support for the Traditional Latin Mass on campus); but since I graduated Christendom twenty-five years ago, one of the principal reasons I continue to support the college is because of its principled commitment to uphold standards of Christian morality on campus—standards that have been abandoned on nearly every other Catholic college campus in the country.
This new attack on Christendom, therefore, strikes me as being somewhat satanic in character. I don’t know how else to describe a blatant hatchet job against one of the few Catholic colleges still upholding Christian morality.

Ignatius Press has just released Heroism and Genius: How Catholic Priests Helped Build ‒ and Can Help Rebuild ‒ Western Civilization, by Fr. William J. Slattery, PhD, STL.
The book comes highly endorsed by Cardinals Robert Sarah, Raymond Burke, and Walter Brandmuller; by the novelist Michael O’ Brien, author of Father Elijah: An Apocalypse, who describes Heroism and Genius as an “extraordinary book…an essential read for anyone desiring to understand where we have come from and where we presently are”; by Thomas Woods, Ph.D., the New York Times best-seller author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History who states “Slattery’s book is the final blow to the Enlightenment version of Western history”.
We decided to interview the author about his new book, available already at Amazon.com.
Many thanks to Father Slattery for taking the time to tell us something about this most important work. - Michael J. Matt
