Eric Sammons

Hi, I’m Eric Sammons – a Catholic, a husband, a father (of seven), and an author. I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of holiness.Eric Sammons

  • Life. Every human life has an inherent dignity, given to it by God, not government. It’s imperative that a society protect its most vulnerable citizens. This means I’m anti-abortion and anti-war.
  • Liberty. I’m a fierce defender of liberty, and I believe that, in modern society, secular governments are the primary enemy of liberty.
  • Pursuit of Holiness. The purpose of life is to become a saint. A convert to Catholicism, I have been studying Catholic teaching for more than 25 years and hold a Master’s degree in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville.

I am the Executive Director of Crisis Publications and the Editor-in-Chief of Crisis Magazine. I’ve written several books, including a book on Catholic evangelization and a book on the digital currency Bitcoin. I’m also the Editor of a Sacramental Preparation textbook on the Sacrament of Confirmation. I have contributed over 150 articles to numerous websites, including OnePeterFiveCatholic AnswersCrisis Magazine,, The Federalist, CatholicVote, and My most recent book is Deadly Indifference, about the impact religious indifference has had on the Church over the past five decades.

You can hear the story of my conversion to Catholicism in the video below. Note that I do open my eyes at least once during the interview.

And here is a video explaining why I consider myself a “traditional Catholic“.
