Pope Pius XII anniversary

As I’ve noted on this blog earlier, today is the 50th anniversary of the death of Pope Pius XII.  One could say that in many ways, this event marked the beginning of the end of a certain era in the history of the Church in modern times.  (Some would say that’s a positive thing, some negative.  Always one to straddle a fence, I’d say it’s a mix.)

My cover story in the September/October ’08 issue of The Catholic Answer marks the occasion and considers Pope Pius’s impressive and controversial legacy.  I see that Our Sunday Visitor, publisher of TCA, now has it available online as well.
