Ugh. ACUs.

Last Day

Karma has made me her instrument.
Chiesa: In Japan As on the Banks of the Rhine. The Church's Surrender

Ah Japan - who has been educating the priests and bishops there? The Jesuits? Who else?

With this sort of witness to the Gospel, should we not expect the Church in Japan to be stagnant?

Yes, the issue of family life is much broader than the question of whether those who are divorced and remarried may receive communion. Who will dare say the P-word, patriarchy? The collapse of the family is to be expected with the trajectory of the modern nation-state and its domination by the interests of the oligarchy. To protect the "family" as such is not enough - one must restore the role of men as fathers and as members of the political community.

Catholic Common Core All the Way!

Modern Catholic Chick Lit

Part of the creation of a new genre within Catholic publishing? For the modern Uhmerican woman who is yearning for more. But is it enough? Spiritual reading for Uhmerican Catholics?

I don't know if she makes this claim, but the marketing surrounding the book may seem like it - "You can have it all, if you become Catholic!" (or find God) It may seem that Boethius made a similar claim with respect to God in Consolation of Philosophy, but he may actually be equivocating on some of the words he used (all/every) with respect to the Good that is God. Does she renounce the Uhmerican feminist program, that would seem to characterize the goals of her life prior to conversion?
