Many reached out to us for a copy of Gen Erik Kurilla's speech at yesterday's 9/11 ceremony. We created this video for all.

Sacks talks about cultural revolution, but he blames the wrong causes (social media, which is more a symptom). The loss of a common culture is due in part to multiculturalism, which in turn has been exacerbated by immigration. The scale of mass population centers tends to degrade personality and culture, even if a veneer of social etiquette and naive trust can be sustained in a homogeneous population that already had that cultural capital (e.g. Japan, some European cities). George is wrong about the role of universities with respect to character formation. Paideia needs to start much earlier. And most of American higher ed (including Princeton) cannot be trusted with any share of this task, in so far as it won't repudiate liberalism or feminism. Aristotle recognizes there are differences between male and female excellence as men and women are different, and the education appropriate to each sex is different. Academics are some of the worst male feminists, possibly because they are naive or have low SSH status. One final point: George identifies as the ultimate foundation for character formation the (Judeo-Christian) view of man being made in the image and likeness of God. He also recognizes the Roman Catholic Church has "shot itself in the foot." But he doesn't recognize the extent of the ecclesial problem (e.g. institutional acceptance of feminism). Nor can there be a "Judeo-Christian" evangelization of peoples. And, again, Christianity by itself is not a solution to a multiethnic state in danger of disintegrating.

Get the scale right and aristocracies won't be wrongly centered on "organizations and business" but on the political community itself. Organizations and businesses in thesmselves have no relation to political rule. (Different ends.) Aristocracies are discovered within the political community themselves and sanctioned by them.

Pope Francis’s Call to the Apostolate of Politics https://t.co/lAoqZSaImd— Rafael de Arízaga (@RafaeldeArizaga) September 10, 2020
Lots of Latins making much out of yesterday's Wednesday audience text because the political principle of the common good is used by Pope Francis. When the number of misunderstandings concerning the common good cannot even be resolved by the thick Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church (i.e. the patriarchate of Rome), a short presentation by Pope Francis in relation to COVID-19 will be insufficient and may even be dangerous in so far as it is open to misinterpretation and distortion. While the exposition of the common good by Pope Francis (or his ghostwriter) is generally correct with respect to its primary use, it is erroneous in so far as it applies "common good" to different scales of political ordering in an univocal rather than equivocal manner. Such a naive understanding of the "common good" leads to statism even if it is out of "good motives," because the intention and that which is ordered to the end intended are both disordered. As you may be able to tell, to actually unpack those claims would require more than the amount of time allotted for a Wednesday audience. But scale is an issue of which those specializing in Roman Catholic social teaching (i.e. moral theology with respect to political life) are generally ignorant. The tentative nature of RC social teaching should be admitted, but the more this pope makes use of it, the less possible this will become, given the Latin tendency to over-inflate the authority of the bishop of Rome. I suspect the next encyclical will highlight the problems of Latin ecclesiology once again, despite scholastic musings about what makes for ex cathedra teaching (e.g. having the proper formula) and conditions for infallibility.
People don’t realize it, but once upon a time the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Baptist Churches were all about equal-sized in the American South.

What sounds to us like a message of exile ("treat unrepentant sinners as you would a Gentile or a tax collector") completely falls apart when you remember how Jesus actually treated Gentiles and tax collectors: warmly, hospitably, with great hope for their conversion. pic.twitter.com/d8WOKZQaxM— Catherine Addington (@caddington11) September 6, 2020
Is this how that sentence is normally understood? Exile? (Or excommunication?)
Is such a consequence completely unwarranted?
The English translation of the pope's Angelus address gives a better translation of the passage in question, Matthew 18:17. Pope Francis may give a better explanation:
And Jesus says: “and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector” (ibid.). This expression, seemingly so scornful, in reality invites us to put the brother in God's hands: only the Father will be able to show a greater love than that of all brothers and sisters put together.
But the alternative explanation offered by Francis is unwarranted by the text, unless one is reading into it -- if one is no longer to consider the unrepetant sinner a brother or sister in Christ, but an outsider, does that mean we are to scorn him or her? No. Does that mean we stop living them with agape? No. But a sinner's offense may be so serious that it does require that we no longer include him in the community -- exile or excommunication. Excommunication or exile is not incompatible with agape. Regardless of whether someone is included in the Church or not, how can the Body of Christ have a greater agape love than that of God Himself?
Let us remember that Christ did not force Himself upon those who rejected Him, tax collector, Gentile, Pharisee, Saducee, Samaritan, etc. He did invite people to repentence but He also made it clear that repentence for sins was necessary for forgiveness.

Men of Christ, a Milwaukee-based apostolate, has founded “Unite Our Nation” following the success of the August 15th Eucharistic Procession and patriotic Rosary rally in Madison, WI.
For the sake of argument... let us assume that this, like the March for Life or prayer processions, is not reducible to a mere political act. What is the spiritual significance? Can one have the pure intention of just praying in public like this? Or are there spiritual risks when one is parading in such a manner in front of non-believers? A vestige of Latin triumphalism? It would seem that this is without precedent in the early Church. Is this act ordered towards evangelization? Of course God can work upon the human heart through any event, but is the public display of Roman Catholic piety in a non-Catholic society effective as a means of evangelization? What does such a procession accomplish that prayer within a temple or at home could not?
Would some say that the duelling of gods can be found in the Old Testament and in some missionary saints (St. Boniface) and see such prayer processions being similar to that? But have we accepted a righteousness comparable to the prophets or those missionary saints?
