Critic Reviews

"One discovers in Professor Bellitto that all too rare combination of scholarly expertise and exquisite communicator. His lectures weave humor with erudition, prophetic challenge with passion for the people of God, and historical objectivity with deep care for the Church. His perspective on John Paul II is a winner! " (Elena Procario-Foley, PhD, Chair of Religious Studies Department, Iona College)
