Nice to see theology done well

Brett Salkeld offers a measured, thoughtful, and very orthodox analysis of “Heresy and the Eucharist”. I particularly appreciate his sense of balance and attention to the Tradition. Kudos!

Fr. Denis Lemieux writes…

This recent blog post has been interesting to quite a few of my readers, and may be of interest to some of yours, too. It is on the deep anger against the Church many have, and the odd and garbled faith that lies beneath it – namely the expectation that the Church should be divine [Read More...]
