Why, Indeed?

Projecting unto St. Joseph

What do we know of the virtues or example of St. Joseph? Nothing. We can know something about the virtues of Christ by participating in Him; what knowledge can we have of St. Joseph, about whom (and the Theotokos as well) so little was written, even if one considers the apocrypha. One can only project what thinks are the virtues of a man and of a woman unto them, and what if one's understanding of masculine and feminine excellences are incorrect? It becomes a form of creating a false authority to justify one's assumptions - a form of circular reasoning.

Thomism and Intelligent Design

Who WIll Put an End to This?
