Watch Some C.S. Lewis Doodles

doodle

  C.S. Lewis Doodle is almost completely self-explanatory: it’s a guy illustrating excerpts from the works of C.S. Lewis with doodles, and it’s pretty neat. The art is credited to Playmobible.com and the reading is by Ralph Cosham, who some might recognize from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. [Read more...]

7 Book Takes

7_quick_takes_sm1

I’ve never done one of Jen Fulwiler’s 7 Quick Takes before, but I see that Leah Libresco has turned Darwin Catholic’s Immediate Book Meme (and BTW, Darwins, your pizza recipe CHANGED OUR ENTIRE LIVES!) into a quick take thingie, and I know an idea worth stealing when I read one, so… — 1 —  What [Read More...]

Light & Bread in the Gospel of John

This essay originally was published in an online journal, now defunct. I’m publishing it here in case it’s of interest. The full title is Light and Bread: A Sapiential Reading of Two “I Am” Statements in the Gospel of John. All the footnotes got stripped when I plopped the text into WordPress, but if you’re curious [Read More...]

Leo XIII on the Role of “Amateurs” in Defending the Faith

Every now and then I come across a complaint, like this one urging the Register to fire Mark Shea, about lay Catholics who speak and write about the faith. The idea that this role should be left to the “professionals” is rooted in either clericalism or elitism. It has no roots whatsoever in the life [Read More...]

iPieta [App o the Mornin']

iPieta (iOS/Android: $3) is  huge app, both in scope and size. At 181 MB, it demands a hefty chunk of real-estate. (By comparison, Cut the Rope only takes up 22 MB.) But it earns its space by placing a staggering library of documents and prayers at your fingertips. The documents are divided into four sections: Bible, [Read More...]

Francis, Benedict, and Pelagius

Pelagius

Yesterday’s tempest in a Z-cup focused on Pope Francis’s curious phrase “self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism,” used to describe certain factions within Catholic traditionalism. I remain puzzled that Francis has, on multiple occasions, felt the need to single out traditionalists for criticism, given the nature of evil at large in world. Most traditionalists are good and holy [Read More...]

Stephen’s Service: The Apostles of Acts

Stoning_of_St_Stephen

Stephen blazes across Acts like a comet, his brief ministry beginning in two chapters that interrupt the story of Peter and form a bridge to the conversion of Paul. Before he falls under the stones of the mob, he leaves a vivid impression as one of the only people other than Peter or Paul given [Read More...]

Medieval Warrior Snails

snail

The British Library’s Medieval Manuscripts Blog has an interesting compilation of marginal art depicting knights charging at snails. I’ve seen snails in marginals before, but never realized they were such a persistent motif. The symbolism and placement is still puzzling to many medievalists, particularly since the snail did not have a stable meaning associated with [Read More...]
