How Theology Should Be Done?

Still Primarily a Western Phenomenon?

Unfortunately, the charismatic movement has spread among Indian Catholics as well, probably more among those who were Latin-rite but who knows, there may be some Indian Syriac Catholics who have become "Charismatic." Has a renewed emphasis on Confirmation sufficiently addressed their claims about being baptized in the Holy Spirit?

Peter Beaulieu on Vatican I

CWR: The 150th anniversary of Vatican I and the Church today by Peter D. Beaulieu
Has any and all harmony between Vatican I and the central thrust of the reconvened Second Vatican Council now been extravagantly jettisoned?
Back in 1870, Vatican I self-immunized against rapidly pandemic ideologies by affirming, clarifying, and circumscribing—neither modernist nor ultramontane—the dogma and reality of “papal infallibility,” as part of the living Tradition dating forward from St. Peter under the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit (Mt 16:17) and Pentecost (Acts 2:1-31).
If what was written by Vatican I wasn't ultramontane (enough), what more would the ultramontanists have wanted? (For the pope to have the right to exercise political authority over the whole world and not just a "spiritual" authority?) What was actually written by Vatican I (and Vatican II) is already too ultramontane for the rest of the Church Universal. I'll have to dig out my copy of The Gift of Infallibility.

A Depiction of the Crucifixion

That is not so bloody or painful as later depictions in Western art. Would we say that Christ is serene in this one? Or just dead? The missal is dated to a period after the Black Death, but maybe the trend of more gory depictions of the crucifixion had not spread to England yet?
