Fr. Z: REVIEW: The book on Augustine which Pope Benedict would have wanted to write.

Added this to my wish list as well.

St Augustine of Hippo, An Intellectual Biography, by Miles Hollingsworth
Rorate Caeli: Fr. Chad Ripperger's "The Binding Force of Tradition" - Book review
Pravmir: Archbishop Mark (Arndt): Advice to Potential Monastics

Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos

A post at Rorate Caeli reminded me of its existence: Summer Book Suggestions - 2nd Post: What book was important for your conversion or discovery of Tradition?

Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos published books by Dominicans like Fr. Santiago Ramirez, as well as Fr. Carlos Soria and Fr. Alberto Colunga, who are mentioned in that post. How is the publisher faring in the Spanish economy?

Some ideas for conferences and such... not that I would have the resources or standing or credentials to put one on my own, but maybe it is possible to find some sponsors for something less than academic. (Or more than academic, depending on your perspective and the ultimate end of such gatherings.) While the 20th century disputants may have passed on, what about revisiting the debate between the neo-scholastics (neo-Thomists) and the new theologians? Are there any today who would acknowledge being the successors to neo-Thomism? Or would they, like many Dominicans, see themselves as restoring or reviving a Thomism? How is each school to be distinguished from the other?


For the needs of "modern man," how are we to explain God and His saving work? Render scripture more intelligible? Understand God better?

Live from Mumford Road: Episode 4 (Deacon Sabatino Carnazzo)



The Deacon went to Christendom; I believe he was more of a traditionalist while he was there, so I'm interested in his "journey to the East." He is a deacon at Holy Transfiguration (still one of my favorites) and heads the Institute of Catholic Culture.

Should pick up an copy of the recent The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly - could be useful.
