Reflection on the Mosaic Law and the Sacraments

The Law of Old could only signify and foretell the grace in the bosom of the Father that was to be conferred unto sanctification by the Passion of the Incarnate Logos.

Reflection on the Mother of God

The honouring and exaltation of the Mother of God is the surest safeguarding of the dignity and unity of the Person of Christ.

Reflection on Egalitarianism

A nation that permits its peasants to hang their king would happily hang a thousand peasants more.

Reflection on Family Life

The homophiles and the gender theorists have merely progressed the decay of family life that the divorced and the selfish began to pervert many years before. The radical cause of all division is the prideful separation of man from God.

Reflection on Gratia Christi

There is no grace which may make man pleasing to God or to increase him in holiness that does not proceed from the merits of Christ and His Passion. There can no be just community of mankind before God other than through Christ our Lord.

Reflection on Deism

The apparently rational proposition of Deism is fundamentally opposed to the simple and necessary philosophical principle of a real distinction between act and potency. Deism may account for a being's production but not its conservation in being. Without the latter, all logical force of the former is incoherent.

Reflection on the Evangelization of Pope Francis

A faithful and fruitful approach to evangelization is to bring man to his knees. It appears that the method of the current Sovereign Pontiff is to drag God to His knees in the interests of accommodation to obstinate man. The majesty of God is contemptible to the sinner who wishes to remain so, we must therefore dethrone our Lord to placate our bristling conscience. 

The Divine Trinity as the Summit and Source of Beauty

I leave the following for your fruitful meditation without further comment.

''The Divine Beauty, however, is not the result of the harmony of parts or of anything that presupposes composition. God's Beauty resides in the absolute simplicity of His perfection, in virtue of which each element of it is refulgent with the beauty of all.

The Divine Beauty shines most perfectly and sublimely in the Blessed Trinity, which is the highest development of Divine perfection; in It we can easily detect all the elements of beauty, viz, unity and multiplicity, the splendour of perfection and life, the resemblance of the image to the ideal or prototype. In fact, there is no greater unity in multiplicity than the perfect identity of the Three Divine Persons; no more perfect unfolding of essential perfection and life than the trinity fecundity in God, wherein the whole Divine Essence is communicated - the whole wisdom of the Father uttered in His Word, the whole love of the Father and the Son poured forth in the Holy Ghost; and there is no greater resemblance of any image to its prototype, than the resemblance of the Divine Word to the Eternal Father. By appropriation, beauty is especially attributed to God the Son, because He is the splendour of the glory of the Father, the perfect expression of the Divine perfection.''

Reflection on Divine Faith

A multitude of natural acts, whether they form empires or shake them, whether they produce fruit of enduring and laudable proportions or whether they obtain the progression of all mankind are to be regarded as straw in comparison with one supernatural act of Faith.
