St Justin Martyr
First "Lay" Apologist
Tradapologia.com is dedicated to the countless soldiers of Christ through the ages who have gone into battle for Christ to defend His name and the teachings and traditions of His Holy Apostolic Roman Catholic Church. Christ's soldiers have put on a suit of armor St. Paul spoke of as recorded at Ephesians 6:11-17; "Put on the (suit of) armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Gird your loins with truth, and the breastplate of justice, your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: take up the shield of faith to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. and take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit." (the word of God)
A soldier doesn't go into battle just to defend himself; he must also carry a sharp-edged sword to cut into the heart of the enemy; that is, into the false teachings of the devil and his earthly minions. This sword of the spirit includes the teachings of Christ revealed by His Holy Catholic Church with St Peter as His Vicar and chief representative on earth when Christ gave Peter the keys of the kingdom, that he should "Feed the sheep" or teach Christ disciples through "the Church". John 21:17.

Why the Douay-Rheims?
"You shall not add to the word that I speak to you, neither shall you take away from it: keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you."
Church Tradition - What does that mean?
You’ll discover "the Church" was established with Christ centuries before there was a handwritten Bible, which was completed in the 4th century by St Jerome presided over by Pope St. Damasus I.
Jesus Christ sent forth some as apostles, some as prophets, evangelists and doctors of His Church; for perfecting the saints. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
You’ll learn why Jesus and His Church had enemies?
Why there have been false teachers and heresies right from the start right up until our time?
You’ll discover the truth of what lead up to Vatican II Council in 1962 and why the vast changes that continue to occur take place even now. The "conciliar church" in Rome changed the faith and the traditions of "Roman Catholic Church" around the world resulting millions leaving the Church.
