Mystical Marriage

Why should female religious or virings be the only ones to be venerated as Brides of Christ? Why shouldn't we speak of married women or of even men being wedded to Christ? There are some who will actually affirm this, taking poetic language too far.

What About the Loss of Greek as the Language of the Church?

The theological divide between the Latins and the Greeks could have been avoided if the Latins had just retained Greek. Instead, they chose not to act as adults and communicate with charity in spite of linguistic differences, although the Greeks probably had the better of the argument.

Latin Gerondism?

Withdrawing From the World to Save It by Thomas Griffin

What is useful in the rule for the laity is whatever immediately reflects life in Christ; there is an analogue between living in a monastic community and political community, but political community must be explained on its own terms. And hence the Rule of St. Benedict by itself is insufficient to provide that sort of guidance for lay people.

After all, one could say that this authority of the bishop of Rome with respect to the Roman rite applies only to the authority that he has over the Roman rite and the patriarchate of Rome, and that this authority could be limited or modified.

David Bentley Hart's New Substack

Spot the Flaw

The purported link between charity (a supernatural infused virtue) and civil law. That the observance and execution of law should be motivated by charity is unquestionable; whether this can be legislated by a human authority is the dubious part, and this applies to ecclesial law as well. What matters for human law is the justice of the external action that is commanded (or prohibited).
