Kicking Determinism’s Ass

hopping

It's possible to believe a thing to be absolutely true, and simultaneously live like it's absolutely false. L'example: There are billions of human beings who profess that strange doctrine of the Incarnation, and who celebrate the Christmas Day when Truth, Goodness and Beauty became Man. But of those billons, how many treat Man as a new and glorified being in whom dwells divinity?If I pass a woman on the street, and know beyond a shadow of doubt she is destined to become infinitely like God, c … [Read more...]

I Dare You

hope2012

I have challenge for you. Consecrate yourself to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary, by the way of St. Louis de Montfort. The graces, gifts and consolations attached to this "Perfect Devotion" are incredible. Not that that's why we should consecrate ourselves through Mary, of course.

We should consecrate ourselves to her because in o … [Read more...]

This is first of all a lenten penance, for you must know this work soothes my ADHD. Secondly, it'll give me time to really intake, to inhale Christ for a while, via Thomas Kempis and Louis de Montfort. And finally, I need to be working on _________ which requires 10 times the effort of BadCatholic, at least 50 more people (if … [Read more...]

The Young Chesterton Chronicles

I begin this post with an apology to the author of The Young Chesterton Chronicles, whose work I promised to read and review quite a while ago, and only now have finished. But better late than tied between wild horses and having your limbs torn out, as they say.So where to begin? These books are awesome. As one may judge by their covers:I got the pleasure of reading the second book in the series, The Emperor of North America. In a steampunk world of bizarre da Vinci-esque flying … [Read more...]
