What Leading Catholics are Saying about the Writings and Apostolate of Hugh Akins
At the podium, Hugh Akins, author, lecturer and then president of ICRS, Independent Congressional Research Service, is also president of CTC BOOKS (Cross of Christ Publishers), National Director of CatholicActionResourceCenter.Com, and Founding President of the League of Christ the King under the SSPX, USA. Here, in the photo above, Mr. Akins is seen introducing Representative John Schmitz, the popular and intrepid US Congressman from Calif., presidential candidate and Catholic familyman, to an enthusiastic gathering of nearly 1,000 patriots in New York in 1972. Congressman Schmitz, a forerunner of Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, ran against President Nixon on an uncompromising God, Family & Country platform and in staunch opposition to Marxist-Leninist Totalitarianism abroad and Democratic Totalitarianism at home (the very SAME Democratic-Fascist Totalitarianism we are struggling against TODAY, under the Zionist/Masonic presidency of Barack Obama).
"Your book [Christian Order and the Modern World] is a very great light in our time’s darkness, and specially for
"We are very excited and encouraged by your work which should revive real Catholic Action, also eliminating the mock fight and controlled opposition many Catholics have been lulled into." - C. O., Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania
"Hugh, Thank you for your great work in promoting the Social Reign of Christ the King...I just wanted to say that as I learn more about what is going on...I more fully realize how few Catholics there are who preach and practice the Faith integrally. Therefore, I want to say thank you for your commitment to the Reign of Christ and Mary in all aspects. Deo gratias for men like you and Bp. Williamson." - T. L. Canada
"Dear brother in Jesus Christ. It was a breath of fresh air to discover your website, your faith, your apostolate, your action, your reach." - P. R. Knock, Ireland
"If ever there was an unsung hero in the resistance against the plot to overturn 'Altar and Throne,' it is this guy...war veteran, writer, speaker, organizer, activist, apostle, patriot [I am] proud to have sent a donation when I could spare a few bucks. Now he got this new one coming soon, 'Synagogue Rising.' Yipes! Have you checked his website on this? I don't have a computer, used my son-in-laws. From the contents seems his best book. Scary, though. Shouldn't he be afraid for his life? Pray God's protection for him and his family." - A. R. J. (Franciscan Third Order who in 1970 sent open letters of resignation to the unfaithful Franciscans and Knights of Columbus who gave in to the modernist errors), Corpus Christi, Texas
"I suggest every Catholic read the book, No King But Caesar, by Hugh Akins. I assure you, it will forever change your view on Americanism, Freemasonry and vatican II. Did you know America was a Catholic country before the Protestants arrived?...He shows in his book that the past 200 years have led to Vatican II, democracy in the Church, and collegiality. Please, I am not a salseman, just a traditional Catholic who loves his faith. Get a copy of this book and lend it to friends and priests. I promise after reading it you will truly proclaim VIVA CHRISTO REY!" - "Kepha," CatholicForum.FishEaters.com
"A true story: When a group of us wrote to Hamish Fraser of Scotland, around 1972ish, to ask how we might go about organizing a movement in America for Christ the King and Our Lady of Fatima, he wrote back advising us to make contact with 'a smart and zealous young man living in New York who is already involved in a like crusade.' His name: Hugh Akins. No one has done more to give instruction, inspiration and animation to Catholic Action in the post-Conciliar Church than Hugh Akins." - Brian Cobain, Watkins, Colorado
"Your work is phenomenal. Glory to Christ's power and strength be given to you. You are a source of strength for the Church Militant, in aiding us around America, 'to restore all things in Christ.' ... Thank you for your service to the Church Militant on earth!" - G. S., Pheonix, Arizona.
"I must confess that it was to my utter delight to discover that real Catholic men with strong Catholic minds still exist in this day and age. There might be some hope for this country after all. Deo gratias." – Kevin Falkner, Folsom,
"Catholics in the
"Thank you so much for your excellent book, Christian Order and the Modern World. Please accept my congratulations for this very important work, based on the teaching of the social doctrine of the Church and the popes. I would wish that this book had a big spreading everywhere in English speaking countries, especially in the
"I could not put the book down [No King But Caesar]. I learned so much from it. More importantly, it changed my thinking forever on so many crucial issues. Dear sir, you have performed a wonderful service in the on-going war between good and evil. Thank you for opening my eyes and for supplying the remnant in
"As you say, what a combat! But you must be congratulated on your public impact … If only many more Catholics understood today’s crisis as you do, the Church would not be in nearly such straits." – Bishop Richard Williamson, Rector, St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary,
"Great champions of the truths of the Social Reign of Christ the King in the half-century since the death of Fr. Denis Fahey have included ... the author of No King But Caesar, Mr. Hugh Akins ... Mr Akins was one of the original founders of the League of the Kingship of Christ ... His fifth printing of No King But Caesar is an important volume for Catholics to purchase, read, study and reference, as it provides proof once again that each champion of Christ the King speaks but with one voice, that of the Catholic Church, that of Catholic truth ... Mr. Akins ... makes it clear that their [the conciliar popes] teaching deviates from the Catholic faith and draws the contrast between, if I can say so, conciliarism and Catholicism very effectively. Mr. Akins demonstrates that Americanism, which can be defined as the exaltation of the American founding principles as compatible with and no threat to the integrity of the Catholic Faith, is truly inimical to the Faith ... No King But Caesar is compelling reading ... I give this book my heartiest endorsement ... This should be assigned reading in every traditional Catholic school and home-schooling curriculum. Traditional chapels should stock and sell this book." - Dr. Thomas Droleskey, Editor Christ or Chaos, Pine Island, New York.
"Mr. Akins - I read your manuscript [The Stern Committee Findings] and war-time journal [Combat in Vietnam] at the recommendation of my esteemed colleague and dear friend, Dr. Merril Root. I must confess that I am as impressed with them - and with you - as he was. My dear Sir, you most certainly have a talent with words. One can actually FEEL the burning passion in what you write. In addition, the message you bring to your reading audience could not be more exigent. I wish you very much success in your literary - and apostolic - endeavors. And I salute you as well, Sir, for your most honorable, commendable and courageous service to your country in Vietnam. Truly, you have 'Answered as a Man' " [this was the title of one of Ms. Caldwell's many published books]. - Taylor Caldwell, international best-selling author, London, England.
"His analysis is perceptive, his writing compelling, his theology – pure, unadulterated traditional Catholic. I am more than happy to introduce his works to my readers in this part of the world." – Yves Dupont, author, editor of World Trends,
"Thank you for your letter of April 12 with the enclosed manuscript, No King But Caesar. The book is indeed an excellent refutation of liberalism and Americanism and would certainly merit to be printed." – Fr. Peter Scott, Former
"Many thanks for a complimentary copy of your book … I pray that by the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ this book might do a lot of good to many souls. You may diffuse it among our chapels." – Fr. Francis Laisney, Former District
"My very dear friend, Hugh: It was such a joy to learn of your recent activity. The restart-up of the League of the Kingship of Christ - oh, what welcome news! If anyone has what it takes to launch a successful crusade for Christ the King on the American side of the Atlantic, it is you. May God continue to bless your apostolate with abundant graces. Please accept this modest donation for this most worthy undertaking." - Deirdre Manifold, Galway, Ireland.
"The book [No King But Caesar] is very good ... It is a very useful compendium of sources. The arguments are put together well ... a good, solid blend of immutable Catholic doctrine, history, and contemporary events ... Excellent work, Hugh." - Dr. Thomas Droleskey, Editor, Christ or Chaos, Pine Island, New York
"I must say that With Jesus on Retreat is a classic! I can see why the Angelus Press actively distributes it. Rare is the book this rich in Catholic spirituality that also gives an in-depth overview of the crisis of the post-Vatican II era. Not surprising, our bookstore was all sold out after
"It’s doubtful there are more than a handful of
"Based on the samples I’ve seen – several pages from his private journal, Combat in Vietnam, and a sample chapter from his unpublished political novel on the Vietnam War, The Stern Committee Findings – I do believe that this fervent young man is about to distinguish himself as a noteworthy writer." – E. Merril Root, American poet and author of
"The immense undertaking of bringing America back to God – this country’s one and only hope – has found a new champion in the intrepid author of such brilliant works as Democracy’s Deathwish, Caesaropapism and the Americanist Heresy, Christ of all Nations, and No King But Caesar. Hard-hitting, eye-opening and insightful reading. And read them you must! But this zealous young soldier of Christ began making his mark and impacting the world for good long before this, even as most of us traditional Catholics, this editor especially, was still sleeping or finding his way out of the darkness. Even before Michael Davies and Walter Matt and The Remnant, and the arrival of the Society of St. Pius X on the American continent, Hugh Akins publicly supported Archbishop Lefebvre and later co-authored the first book in the English language - perhaps the first book anywhere in the world - to recognize Lefebvre as a great bishop and saint [In Defense of the Faith]." – Dr. James J. Kolby, editor, Issues & Trends Newsletter,
"Thank you so much for authoring Christ of all Nations, and for writing in such a way that I could understand what the Church presents to us about the twofold sovereignty of Christ and His social Kingship. You dispelled a lot of confusion in my layman’s mind. Great job. Donation enclosed." - Jason Wright,
"A man as a man should be, Hugh Akins has a well-trained mind, a soldier’s heart, a Catholic’s passion – and wields his pen like the sword of a medieval knight." - Fr. Malachi Martin,
"Thank you for your 3 booklets [With Jesus on Retreat, Christ of All Nations, and The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart and the Recovery of Christendom]; they are very good … I think your apostolate is very important." – Fr. de la Tour, Rector, Holy Cross Seminary,
"I am of the same view as you … I have a few young men interested to promote the social reign of Christ the King … Your literature has filled me with zeal for such an apostolate in
"Christian Order and the Modern World, is one of the most interesting books I have come across." – Christopher Armitage,
"Your excellent book … is very comprehensive in that it summarizes the world problems from the social, political, economic, medical, religious, spiritual and theological aspects – a veritable opus Magnum!" – Edgar A. Lucidi, M.D.,
"Many thanks for your Christian Order and the Modern World. Let me assure you that every contribution in the fight to restore our Roman Catholic Faith is very important. I have already begun to spread the word about your book." – Fr. Francis L. LeBlanc,
"God has certainly given you a wonderful blessing in your ability to write and compile all the truths contained in Christian Order and the Modern World." – Mrs. Carol Maloney,
"I congratulate you on your book, and do encourage many to read it." – Fr. Loren Gerspacher,
"I read the book and fully agree with the sentiments expressed … The contents are exquisite and should be read not only by traditional Catholics but also by sincere, truth seeking Christians." – Klaus Deubelbeiss,
"Your Christian Order and the Modern World arrived a few days ago. The book, to my mind, is a masterpiece … Everything you have in the book needs to be there to make it complete. So very few people know about the conspiracies of the big bankers, the politicians, the food poisoners, and the enemies of our dear Faith … God bless you and may your readers (and I hope you will have a lot of them) take heed and profit by what you have written." – Francis Callaghan, The Angelus Shop,
"Congratulations on a job well done. Please rush me 50 copies of your excellent book. Many souls are in urgent need of the information Mr. Akins has so painstakingly compiled." – Roger P. Callas,
"Thank you for sending us the flyers on your books. I was introduced to your work via a cassette tape on 'The Heresy of Americanism' several years ago. Up to that point I had NO idea regarding the Kingship of Christ in what that truly means, and also no awareness of TRUE history of our country. Since then I have tried to educate myself in all truth." - Mrs. John Costello, Mount Dora, Florida.
"Hugh’s In Defense of the Faith was a real labor of love, this I can tell you from first-hand knowledge, and I might add quite an awakening to the uninformed Catholic. I am encouraged by the prospects of winning many converts through this well-written, thoroughly documented expose. I believe in Hugh Akins. He has been an inspiration to many of us who know him." – Michael Sherin,
"I would appreciate it if you would let me know of any other books by Hugh Akins. I have read his Christian Order and the Modern World, and have found it most interesting and informative." –
"What a wonderful revelation it was for me to go through your book, In Defense of the Faith. I fully endorse the explanations … both against the Novus Ordo and in praise of the true Mass of old. The New Mass is nothing but a profanation and a sacrilege … With these extra copies of your book, sure I am roused to put up a fight for the old true Mass by presenting them to a few bishops at the start, and a few laymen as well." – Rev. Msgr. D. L. Mathias,
"Please send 25 copies of Christian Order … for now. We have just a small book store and so we are limited in our purchasing power. But we will bring the book all over western
"…I do not know of any actual book giving a more accurate picture of our modern world than this commentary by Mr. Akins … it fits all the pieces of the puzzle together, enabling us to see clearly the intimately linked roots of our evils. But its main merit is that it is based on the perennial teaching of the Church, explained in a way that everybody can understand. No wonder this book is recommended by Archbishop Lefebvre. Yes, every Catholic in
"Hugh Akins is a most interesting writer … Trinity Acres (dedicated to St. Pius X) will promote this text (Christian Order and the Modern World) along with Fr. Fahey’s The Mystical Body of Christ and the Reorganization of Society. We are very much interested in Hugh Akins’ other publications." – Robert Fitzpatrick,
"I have finished reading your excellent book … I want to get it into the hands of many of my friends, so I will take advantage of your offer of 40% on 25 or more copies. There is a noticeable movement among traditional Catholics to produce the solid writing we need for our times. Yours is a valuable contribution. May God further your efforts." – Msgr. Raymond Ruscitto,
"I have read your book six times. This is not an indication of fault finding with me; rather an indication of appreciation for a good work … You have covered many areas … Your book really is a summation of world difficulties in the present age … Your coverage of the secular conditions is all too accurate – and all too frightening! … I have enjoyed and will continue to benefit from your book … I pray that many people will read it and learn from it." – Rt. Rev. Msgr. William Ridgeway Jr., Vicarius Generalis, The Latin (Eastern) Rite Orthodox Catholic Church of America, Falmouth, Maine.
"You are a living example not only of how to promote the Social Reign of Christ the King but of true charity for your brothers and sisters in Christ with whom you do not agree completely on all issues. This is almost unheard of these days. I commend you for it as I support your own valiant work in behalf of Christ the King and mary our Immaculate Queen." - Dr. Thomas Droleskey, Editor Christ or Chaos, Pine Island, New York.
"I have completed your educational, inspiring book Yuma and am in the middle of No King But Caesar, and want to thank and commend you for this GREAT apostolate labor of love you have undertaken, which is SO very much needed. I have learned a great deal more from these books and look forward to reading more of your (and the Church's) teachings ..." - Mrs. John Costello, Mount Dora, Florida.
"What a delight to receive your complimentary book … You touch upon most of the essentials, and it is literally sprinkled with good sound quotations. A very fine work … I agree with you, Msgr. Lefebvre is the Athanasius of our time." – Don McLean, editor, Catholic,
"Christian Order and the Modern World … is like a hundred Christian classics condensed into a single volume. Every page is packed with Catholic wisdom. Every chapter bulges with the Church’s authentic teachings. None of that modernist nonsense is found here. The orthodox faith is zealously upheld throughout the book … In summary, Hugh Akins has given us a book that has real merit; a book I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend. Though it provides no new truths to the knowledgeable Catholic, it does present these truths in one neat, concise and highly readable package. Here is a book that contains a veritable treasury of Catholic thought on a host of timely issues and trends. It is my sincere hope that many will be introduced to this outstanding volume." – Mrs. Michelle F. Hughes, Port
"Thank you indeed for a copy of your article [Archbishop Lefebvre – the Consecration of Bishops and the Question of Schism] which seems to me to be eloquent and accurate. Congratulations … God bless you and your family and your pen!" - Bishop Richard Williamson, Rector, St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary,
