"How can we tolerate such Trojan horses as the former Secretary-General of the Italian Episcopal Conference, Bishop Nunzio Galantino, who said not long ago that 'the Reformation carried out by Martin Luther 500 years ago was an event of the Holy Spirit.'" Michel Houellebecq, "RESTORATION".

Gonzalo T. Palacios (b. Venezuela, 1938, married, 3 sons, 8 grandchildren) obtained his PhL in Philosophy from the Gregorian University (Rome), where he also studied Catholic theology. During the Second Vatican Council, students at the Gregorian were instructed by visiting theologians and religious leaders from all over the world. Palacios returned to the U. S. and in 1970 obtained his doctoral degree in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America (Washington DC). He retired in 2015 after teaching Philosophy for over 50 years.
Dr. Palacios' Roman years provided him with excellent spiritual and intellectual guidelines. His eyes opened to the earthly realities undermining his Church, the same moral corruption that alienated Martin Luther from his Church 500 years earlier. Contact: email@example.com
