James Kalb on Subsidiarity

Subsidiarity: Why is It Praised More than It is Practiced? by James Kalb (CWR)

Marié Digby's 2013 Retrospect

Tonight: HOLY VIGIL for the feast of Christ's circumcision and the feast of St. Basil the Great - followed by fellowship until midnight. A Byzantine way of celebrating the New Year... alas, I won't be able to attend.

Contra Dance Etiquette for the Guys


If men naturally tune out women (as opposed to being a habit they gradually acquire, for whatever reason), would this be a sufficient reason for not having women as lectors/readers? Does the same apply to female cantors (cantrixes)? Male voices are better suited to commanding the attention of both men and women.

Alexander's Bridge

Related to this post - Pantaeo recorded the re-enactment of the Battle of Chickamauga for the 150th Anniversary and also used the occasion to film a movie about Delta Force operators who travel back in time to that battle. Unfortunately, they decide to help out the Union Army. (A reflection of the company's sympathies? Or just a decision made for the sake of PC?)
