Ephrem's Mary: A Poetics of Wonder

Faith and Practical Reason: Fr. Wojciech Giertych, O.P.

The World Needs Christ

Not more academese, and "Modernity" is an invention of the elites, not out of whole cloth but close. Would the pioneers of "modernity" fall somewhere on the spectrum? Where would they fall on the social hierarchy?

Church Life: Renewing Nouvelle Théologie by Cyril O’Regan

Forgetfulness of God is a serious problem - without memory of God we cannot bless Him and thank Him for His manifold benefits. Is this forgetfulness, then, just an intellectual mistake, or is it one caused by sin? If the Latin churches had not first been internally weakened, and then lost to the modern nation-state, would there be a spiritual vacuum to be filled by some ideology? So what Latins have to offer the world in bringing Christ to it, after 50 years of a disastrous liturgical reform?

"And if there is a simple lesson to be drawn from the sprawling work of both de Lubac and Balthasar it may well be that misrememberers are far more dangerous to Christianity because in some lights they look just like it."

We are not talking about heresies but philosophical errors that do not fulfill man's heart, but feed upon sin and vice. what normal person claims to be a Hegelian or Nietzschean? Academics may pretend; there are those on the new right who claim to be followers of other philosophers, but they have rejected Christianity because of its perceived errors in its moral code.

More Responses to Constantinople

Primacy, Conciliarity and the Ecumenical Patriarchate by Metropolitan Jonah (Paffhausen)

The actions of the Patriarchate of Constantinople (EP) in its process of granting a Tomos of autocephaly to the schismatic groups in Ukraine have created a canonical crisis.

Professor Alexei Osipov

The following is a translated transcript of a Spas (Savior) Orthodox TV channel special edition of their program, “Straight to the essence”. In these extremely disturbing times, people want to hear a familiar, trusted voice of experience and sound theology. Professor Osipov is that voice.

The Imperial Episcopacy

Given the development of the monoepiscopate and sin, was it inevitable that the centralization of episcopal power/authority would occur in the patriarch? How is such an arrangement (created through positive law or by concession by the "subordinate" bishops) to be prevented from becoming some sort of tyranny? Synodality? Withdrawal from the synod or non-acceptance of a decision?

What is the basis of thinking of a national (or political) grouping of churches as a "particular Church"?

CWR Dispatch: Pope Francis continues curial shakeup: suppresses Ecclesia Dei commission, moves Sistine Chapel Choir by Christopher R. Altieri
The main issues facing the Vatican and the SSPX are doctrinal in nature, so it makes sense to have the principal organ for dialogue with the SSPX directly under the purview of the curial dicastery responsible for doctrine.
