Papal ...

Let us assume that he is not just flattering his audience; how is it possible to make scientific research possible to everyone, when they do not have the education to understand it? Don't we get enough popularized garbage already that promotes scientism and exalts the techno-elites?

The Mercy of God

Chiesa: Francis, Pope of Tradition
The theme of God's mercy is not a “discovery” of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. It has always been at the center of the Church's preaching. Cardinal Giacomo Biffi explains why, with a stunning quote from Saint Ambrose

I hope this is published.

It Could Only Be Written by a Latin Traditionalist?

The debate on intelligibility continues... Let us tease apart the different parts: the texts of the prayers, the translations, and the not-so-sacred music - intelligibility that is based on pandering to the "lowest common denominator" is wrong-headed, but this is not a sufficient argument for retaining everything in Latin or keeping the EF as is.

Chiesa: The Myth and Reality of Second Marriages among the Orthodox by Sandro Magister

There is a widespread opinion that the Eastern Churches permit a new marriage after divorce, and give communion to the remarried. But this is not the case, as Nicola Bux explains. Only the first marriage is celebrated as a true sacrament

(Bux's essay is also at Rorate Caeli)

Fr. Hunwicke responds to Archimandrite Taft regarding which councils are to be considered ecumenical? (via NLM) See also his subsequent posts.


Fr. Jungmann locates a split between "classical" Christianity and ... what is the label he uses? Anyway, just because the Byzantine Chalcedonian Christians may be more "Patristic" does not mean that they would escape his criticism of how Christian liturgy evolved. (Does his criticism apply to the history of Christian spirituality as well?)
