On Latin and Circumflubbergation

Heralding the swift-rising dawn of the New Translation, I'm making an extra college-sized effort to post on the Liturgy this and next week. My thesis is no secret: To label ourselves Traditional Catholics or Charismatic Catholics or Your Word Here Catholics in regards to the Liturgy is not helping the Church. Of course, of course; there are many wonderful species the Catholic genus might have. But when it comes to the Mass, they must be staid. Why? Because the Holy Mass is the thing itself. It … [Read more...]

Traddys vs. Moderns and the Stupidity Thereof

As the New Translation of the English Missal nears, I am getting more and more pumped about the Liturgy. It is the greatest thing since sex. (And I do not mean that flippantly; the marital union is but a shadow of the union attained at the wedding feast between Heaven and Earth.)But alas and alack and areallylame, these seem to be the days when one must 'pick sides' in regards to the Liturgy, between the (what?) Traditionalists? Conservative Catholics? Latin-Massers? and the (who?) … [Read more...]

5 Things No One Knows Are Ridiculously Catholic, But Should.

bob

As Catholics, we try not to be smug. We really do. But the world makes this task exceedingly difficult when they take our stuff. The truth is that Western Civilization owes its very existence to the Catholic Church, what with the saving efforts of her monks during the Dark Ages, her development Scientific method, the University System, the agricultural advances of the monasteries and - of course - the wealth of art and literature the Church has inspired and produced. But I want to focus on a few … [Read more...]

Totally Consecrated

Guess what I'm doing right now? I'll tell you: The Total Consecration To Jesus Christ Through Mary, which I am currently in the business of renewing. It is a method of Consecration to Christ written by Louis de Montfort, a 17th century Saint, which claims Mary the Mother of God as the surest way to her Son. I aim to renew my promise to be her slave."Woah now," I hear the understandably misunderstanding voices cry. "Slave?" Yes, and in the only context which makes moral sense - in that I will … [Read more...]

Meaningless Art

I have a new hero. He is a janitor at Dortmund’s Museum Ostwall, and he's in big trouble for accidentally cleaning up a puddle that turned out to be an essential part of a 1.1 million dollar work of art. This piece......is now ruined.And I'm roflin. I am instantly reminded of C.S. Lewis' incredible essay, on Good Works and Good Work, in which he stated - with wonderful appropriateness to the current situation:But [...] I doubt whether we have a duty to “appreciate” the ambitious. Thi … [Read more...]

Occupiers, Wayseers and the Catholic Church

G.K. Chesterton, in his noble goal to make the life of a Catholic blogger unbearably easy, said that "the Catholic Church is the only thing that frees a man from the degrading slavery of being a child of his age." You might think I cannot possibly add to such a perfectly rounded statement of truth. And in one sense you'd be right - I can't - but dead wrong in another, for I have a bad habit of trying.For if there is anything that can be said about the modern world, it is that stupidity a … [Read more...]
