Affirming Key Catholic Church Teaching Part I, 

Pope Leo XIII (1810 - 1903):

"To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as truth of what he professes to believe.  The only ones who win when Christians stay "quiet" are the enemies of truth.  The silence of Catholics is particularly disturbing because frequently a few bold words would have vanquished the false ideas."

"No, the most necessary thing of all at this time, is for every parish to posses a group of laymen who will be at the same time virtuous, enlightened, resolute truly apostolic". Jean-Baptiste Chautard "The Soul of the Apostolate"
