Holy Job

Why not St. John the Forerunner as Well?

Why shouldn't he be named a patron of the Universal Church?

Or is this feast really tied to the Latin devotion to the Holy Family?

Does Rome really speak for the Universal Church in this matter? (Like canonizations and naming doctors of the Church, isn't this only in reference to its own liturgical calendar and cultus?)

Biblical Thomism

The Present Crisis in the Patriarchate of Rome

It is probably not correct to trace it as a consequence of ecclesial trends prior to and culminating in the Council of Trent, much less to intellectual trends alone, but one must also take into consideration the development of the modern nation-state (with its roots in the centralization of power by nationalist kings) and how the Church responded accordingly.

It's not just neo-scholasticism or Tridentine Roman Catholicism that is the problem, though they do have a major effect on the Church's ability to evangelize.

What is the diaconate?

Fr. Hunwicke: What is the Diaconate? and Diaconia in the Tradition of the Roman Church (1)

Homo economicus is actually Homo servus

The illusion of economic freedom is just that.

Economic productivity has been extracted by powers outside the home, leaving little economic freedom that is rooted in a domestic economy. And now, even women have been taken out of the home so they can be turned into consuming/producing units in service of those holding economic power.

Without cheap energy to sustain the system and the consolidation of economic and political power by the few, feminism would not be possible.
