Review: Faithful for life: the autobiography of Father Paul Marx, OSB.

In 1980 the authorities at St. John’s Abbey and St. John’s University, by underhanded means, forced Father Marx to leave Collegeville and his Human Life Center and carry on his pro-life work elsewhere. The full story of this persecution is told in this book.

Benedictines at St. John’s, including Father Marx’s own brother, Father Michael Marx, OSB, signed a statement contradicting Humanae vitae, Pope Paul IV’s official teaching concerning contraception, and the faculty at St. John’s University overwhelmingly refused to endorse a statement opposing abortion. Father Marx then went to Washington, with little but an automobile, and started Human Life International, which today is by far the largest pro-life institution in the world. In the same year Pope John Paul II told him: “You are doing the most important work on earth.”
