On the Question of Mass Stipends
See also: S Thomas on Concelebration and Pope Innocent III on Concelebration
John Lamont: "For non-Latinists, this claim (it is a complete sentence in the conciliar document) can be translated as follows: 'For love of God and of neighbour is the first and greatest commandment'. No Latin is needed to realise that this is a flat contradiction of the teaching of Christ. There is a deliberate allusion in Gaudium et Spes 24 to the wording of the divine teaching it is contradicting, as can be seen from looking at the Vulgate text of that teaching..."
The second can be considered a part of first, in so far as the first provides the justification and the motivation for the second.
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae II II 44, 2:
"The love of God is the end to which the love of our neighbor is directed. Therefore it behooved us to receive precepts not only of the love of God but also of the love of our neighbor, on account of those who are less intelligent, who do not easily understand that one of these precepts is included in the other."
See also II II 25, 1.
An embarrassing critique. Latin traditionalists really should be more circumspect, lest their zeal to conserve what they think to be Catholic teaching leads them to errors such as this. (A poor foundation in theology? Even a good conservative Thomist, or a good Thomist of "strict observance" would no better than to offer this.)

Contemplation as "Silence"
Our current director, Kevin M Johnson was involved in a long interview about silence and The Inner Room with Artur Sebastian Rosman.Posted by The Inner Room on Tuesday, May 12, 2015
An emphasis on nous; no such thing as Catholic silence or Catholic contemplation? What about Christian contemplation? There is no real mysticism without Christ. Too much of an "interfaith," interdisciplinary approach to contemplation that tries to engage modern Western philosophy as well? I prefer explanations by Fr. Bouyer, Archimandrite Gabriel Bunge or Fr. Jean Corbon. Contemplation is not the same as meditation, though it may make use of it.
