The Confession

They Shall Not Grow Old

Peter Jackson’s World War I Masterpiece by LAUREN WEINER

The Slow Death of Manhood

At unfortunate bit of theological white knighting at the beginning when they refer to a version of Scott Hanh's interpretation of Genesis in which Adam's sin was failing to protect Eve from the serpent. I haven't listened to the rest yet; after that bit of the blue pill I was discouraged from continuing. Maybe later, when I have more time.

How can they get away with such retrograde, toxically masculine hero?


The Limits of Liberalism

CWR: Narrating the Tradition of Liberalism’s Anti-Tradition by Brian Jones
Mark T. Mitchell’s The Limits of Liberalism argues that the human person can only understand himself in this world by being in relation, with nature, neighbor, enemy, and ultimately the ontological source of all that is, namely, God.

Hey Archbishop, Maybe You Should Worry About Handling Cardinal Mahony

CNA: Without God society has lost its humanity, Gomez warns conference

Sin as the root of our moral problem, and so is the capital sin of pride. But using sin as a springboard to promote liberalism in the name of human dignity? There are other moral goods which must be respected, besides human dignity, and Archbishop Gomez damages the credibility of the Latin churches by riding this erroneous hobby horse. Meanwhile, rather than giving a theological lecture for which he is unqualified maybe he should so some real pastoring.

SOTU February 2019

Kunstler was right in his prediction about the content, with respect to the fake economic achievements in this fake economy. Strongest military in the world? Questionable.

President Trump is trumpeting the myths that a civic nationalist needs. But we care about whether he keeps his campaign promises with respect to immigration and foreign policy.

The Democrat women have decided to make a statement. What a joke. Repeal the 19th.

Making a Distinction Between God's Permissive Will and His Active Will

What I would have guessed. Fr. Z tries to explain how this can be orthodox: Francis signed document saying that God willed the “pluralism and diversity of religions”. What’s up with that?

I suppose if you feel bound to show how every utterance of the bishop of Rome is free from heresy and error, then you must put all your effort into it, even though this goes against the tone and context of that passage. An instance of Jesuit mental reservation?

Rorate Caeli: No, Francis, God did not "will a plurality and diversity of religions": saying so is "altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion."

Such Pettiness

How much of a Latin traditionalist does one need to be in order to be good enough for whomever wrote this statement for the SSPX? And why would the SSPX leadership approve of such a statement? Why don't they come out and say what is missing from the FSSP's grasp of "Tradition"?

I'm not sure what the theological explanation would be, but it does seem like G*d has a sense of humor.

Incongruity? Our disordered attachments?

Not that He is laughing at us but He does seek to deflate our expectations of ourselves.

Fortunes for fortune cookies are meant to be flattering and generalizing but some of the ones I found today seemed spot on for one reason or another. Self-opinion or self-conceit?

Sisters of the Valley

Not a real religious order. I wouldn't be surprised if some stuff was going on within the group, stuff of which Pius XIII wouldn't approve.

That Strauss Had an Influence on Catholic Political Philosophy Is Undeniable

City Journal: Rome Vs. Chicago by
Leo Strauss outlined the essential questions about modernity that Catholics grapple with today.

A review of Leo Strauss and His Catholic Readers, by Geoffrey M. Vaughan (Catholic University of America Press, 360 pp., $75)

The problem is not "modernity" as Catholics, influenced by Strauss or not, may believe, but the state.
