Priests Battle the Pouring Dark of Loneliness
The temptation of loneliness can haunt priests alone at their parishes, but a variety of priestly fraternities are giving them ways of finding community with brother priests to sustain them.

Not in Christ necessarily - there is no way for us to know if this is the case and there are signs that this is unlikely.

Dumb Ox Theology Forum: Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP - Aquinas on Imperfect Happiness: Nature, Grace and the Final End of Man

Friday, April 11, 2014 DSPT Dumb Ox

Both Karl Barth and Henri De Lubac provided powerful, compelling visions of the relationship between the grace of God and human nature. However, their visions are in many respects opposed and incompatible. In his reading of Aristotle, Aquinas focuses on the imperfection of all natural human happiness, and on the natural desire for God. How does his vision provide a potential bridge between the diverse theologies of Barth and De Lubac?

Man, missed this - don't recall seeing it on my FB feed:

November 12, 2013 - Dr. Donald S. Prudlo , Associate Professor of Ancient and Medieval History, Jacksonville State University - Canonization and Infallibility: An Historical, Canonical, and Theological Investigation

Ever since the definition of Papal Infallibility at the First Vatican Council, there has been a lively debate in the Church about its meaning. This talk will address the roots of that doctrine in the middle ages, and in particular trace its development in the practice of the canonization of saints.
DSPT Dumb Ox Theology Forum - Canonization and Infallibility: An Historical, Canonical, and Theological Investigation Papal canonization did not really begin to take off until the 12th century. The challenge quickly became how to understand it apart from local and episcopal canonizations. At the same time various groups of heretics were beginning to challenge the doctrine of the Communion of saints, as well as the cultic practices of Christianity surrounding the tombs of its holy ones. In the 13th century the papacy and the new Mendicant orders established a symbiotic relationship that saw the elevation of Franciscan and Dominican saints. Some of these had been intimately involved in the suppression of heresy. Criticism of the cult of saints moved from the general to the particular, as individual saints came under attack. This forced the papacy and the Mendicant theologians to examine more closely the doctrine of papal canonization. By the end of
the thirteenth century, the difference had been established: papal canonizations enjoyed infallibility.
Canonization lies at the root of the personal infallibility dogma, and this will be the subject of the lecture.
