Veritas et Sapientia
Mandeville, LA – “The beginnings of Western culture are to be found in the new spiritual community which arose from the ruins of the Roman Empire owing to the conversion of the Northern barbarians to the Christian faith. The Christian Church inherited the traditions of the Empire. It came to the barbarians as the bearer...

Mandeville, LA – Laura and Carrie knew the Declaration by heart, of course, but it gave them a solemn, glorious feeling to hear the words. They took hold of hands and stood listening in the solemnly listening crowd. The Stars and Stripes were fluttering bright against the thin, clear blue overhead, and their minds were saying...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Like most of you, I watch the escalating violence in our political world, which combined with the shameless rise if public displays of perversion, stoke fear for the near-future. Are all these events and trends coincidence or the fulfillment of prophecies? Reading the statements made by the Mother of Christ...

Mandeville, LA – But that he should be persevering, let each constantly beseech the help of God with all humility of mind; for it is not of him that willeth, we are told, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy’’ , since the mercy of God is greater and better than man’s life’’however good...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Chesterton wrote the following in the last paragraph of his book Heretics. Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson was a political scientist at Cambridge university.- M.C. Ed.] I do not mean that we shall end in destruction. I mean that we shall end in Christianity. “We cannot go back to an ideal of...

Mandeville, LA – IT is most interesting to observe how the foundations of the present intellectual greatness of Europe were laid, and most wonderful to think that they were ever laid at all. Let us consider how wide and how high is the platform of our knowledge at this day, and what openings in every direction...

Mandeville, LA – “What could show greater obedience than that we should follow Christ’s example, Who, being found in fashion as a man, humbled Himself and became obedient even unto death?  Accordingly He has freed all through His obedience. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall...

Mandeville, LA – “I am well aware that in these days Hero-worship, the thing I call Hero-worship, professes to have gone out, and finally ceased. This, for reasons which it will be worth while some time to inquire into, is an age that as it were denies the existence of great men; denies the desirableness...

Mandeville, LA – So let it be. Ireland has chosen between life and death. Death it shall have. The fallacy that a liberal abortion regime solves anything will soon become apparent to Irish citizens. The mother’s pain and suffering from abortion shall still remain. The shame and trauma of having delivered an aborted child are not...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Jordan Peterson has done some yeoman’s work in the trenches of cultural correctness yet there is a nagging lack of The Thing in his presentations that has prevented me from becoming what my friend Debbie Schlussel describes as a “fan-boy”. Gary Potter put this suspicion of mine into words and...

Mandeville, LA – The theory of democracy is, Construct your government and commit it to the people to be taken care of. Democracy is not properly a government; but what is called the government is a huge machine contrived to be wielded by the people as they shall think proper. In relation to it the people...

Mandeville, LA – The second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the most misunderstood and misused act of the Founding Fathers. Most “conservatives” consider it the sans the stone tablets equal to the Ten Commandments for it “guarantees the right to keep and bear arms”. Only it doesn’t. Besides the advantage of being armed, which...

Mandeville, LA – “Mélanie, what I am about to tell you now will not always be a secret. You may make it public in 1858. The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their...

Mandeville, LA – Joseph Pearce takes issue with George Weigel over the course of ‘Murican Catholics in being “in the world” and not “of the world.” The point of disagreement, if indeed it is a disagreement, comes in what Mr. Weigel says next. “The answer to that cultural crisis cannot be a retreat into auto-constructed...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I was searching for the source of my oft repeated phrase “something is either religious or it is irreligious” and stumbled upon the writings of a 17th century French monk named Brother Lawrence who was, wait for it, a discalced Carmelite dishwasher. The following is taken from his collected letters....

Mandeville, LA – All societies, in all times, have lived by dogmas. When dogmas are abandoned, the social bonds dissolve—swiftly or slowly; and the “open” society ceases to be a society at all, giving way to a new order. The need is not for emancipating the young from fixed convictions, but rather for reminding them that...

Mandeville, LA – In America, especially, there is always a need for moral justification.  Life-style — an expression that came out of the same school of thought as sublimation and was actually understood to be the product of sublimation,  but had never been associated with it in America because of the division  of labor that had...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: the United States has just notched the $21 trillion national debt mark after having hot $20 trillion just last September and yet there is little alarm and even less action. Pope Pius XI saw this coming as the result of the West’s revolt against the Catholic moral teaching on the...

Mandeville, LA  – [Editor’s note: The misguided children being used as media props by a ruling elite that sees yet another opportunity to destroy a tradition, i.e. ‘Muricans practicing their God-granted right to self-defense, must discount nay ignore what Chesterton called the democracy of the dead. David Hogg should be reading Chesterton, not Marx and...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: On the feast of Saint Joseph, the earthly foster-father of Our Lord, we should remember and honor the man that taught Jesus his vocation and his public manners. Brother André Marie’s narrative of this is insightful. – Editor, M.C.] “But genes are not all that goes into a child. Whether...

They looked in particular to the republics of Greece and Rome for models as well as warnings. The Constitution was...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: The following is taken from the famous Virginia Report of 1800-1801 that provided a summery of Virginia’s 1798 attempt at a “nullification” of the Alien & Sedition Acts. For further history of this VITAL federal principle and the controversy surrounding it’s now, much needed use, see: Reassessing Responses to the Virginia and...

Mandeville, LA – The abolition of capital punishment, I mean, is one of the products of humanitarianism—that is, of the belief that man’s cleverness will suffice for all purposes, without need for knowledge of the transcendent and the divine. The rejection of capital punishment in any circumstances thus is becoming an attitude which belongs to the...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: On Tuesday, Feb 27th Mike Church Show, I discussed this very subject at some length. Thus I am filled with joy to relay Professor Esolen’s exploration of the same subject matter: what I call the Public School Factory System that more resembles a prison than a school. You can listen...

Mandeville, LA –  All I can say, politely but firmly, is that Hungary deserves better than this. So it’s no wonder that in the country now the mood is not for a change of government, but for a change of opposition. But for a moment let’s take them seriously and make it clear that we...

Mandeville, LA – It never occurs to [Fr. Benedict] Merkelbach that we should consult the feelings of usurers as to their usury, liars as to their lies, the irreligious as to their disdain for God, and fornicators as to their fun in bed. After all, most sins are accompanied by passion, and an evil man is...

Mandeville, LA – “Over the past fifty years, the fear of God, a gift from the Holy Ghost, is fast evaporating. Presumptuous thinking people overestimate their goodness, believing that they are better than they really happen to be. As a practicing psychologist, it is most striking to me how grandiose we have become in assessing...

Mandeville, LA – “As it is a nervous business for prelates to court and be courted by civil power, one might question the wisdom of popes addressing the United Nations or parliaments. “We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in...

Mandeville, LA – But what about the innocent victims of the sins of others? What about the innocent victims of Achilles’ anger and Paris’ lust? What about the ordinary people of Troy? What about “blameless” Hector and his equally blameless wife and child? Why should they suffer? How are they to blame? Or, to put the...

But for the modern world...

Mandeville, LA – Dressing like a floozy tells the world, ‘Look at me, want me, lust after me. I’m easy and you can have me.’ Displaying intimate parts of the body is a form of advertising for sex – so if you dress to attract sexual attention, you can hardly blame anyone else if that kind...

Mandeville, LA – Exactly 900 years ago, in A.D. 1118-19, a small group of men came together in Jerusalem to form a religious community. They were pilgrims. The First Crusade had retaken the city from Muslim rule in 1099. The men, who were all from Europe’s knightly order, had come looking for a life of common...

Mandeville, LA – Let us suppose we are confronted with a desperate thing—say Pimlico. If we think what is really best for Pimlico we shall find the thread of thought leads to the throne of the mystic and the arbitary. It is not enough for a man to disapprove of Pimlico: in that case he will...

Mandeville, LA – After a disastrous defeat in Vietnam and the adoption of Reaganomics, the American Empire embarked upon becoming La República Bananera del Norte. On a small scale, the two vanguard nations, Guatemala and Honduras, gave the world the three defining characteristics of a Banana Republic. I. Class Structure: a tiny elite, a small middle...

Mandeville, LA – “This effort to keep a foot in both churches won’t work, any more than one can be simultaneously Muslim and Buddhist. Even so, the effort to enjoy dual religious citizenship, particularly among politicians and others in the public eye, remains commonplace. It should be understood for what it is: an attempt to...

Mandeville, LA – “In the midst of all this one young man, the son of well to do civil servants, has come to the big city to begin the second half of an education in politics that his family expects will lead to a career in public life. But he has looked around at the...

Mandeville, LA – [The following is excerpted from First Things and edited for continuity – MC, Ed.] The new Star Wars movies start where, forty years ago, the original began.

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from Patrick Deneen’s Why Liberalism Failed, the Mike Church Show’s featured book this month.-MC, Ed.] “The economic catastrophe and near collapse of the world economy in 2008 was, above all, the result of the elimination of a culture that existed to regulate and govern the granting...

Mandeville, LA – “I received your dear letter extremely late; it is dated December 12th. It is actually postmarkedJanuary 3rd. The delay of the second date is normal during these holidays, which are for me the worst days of the year, if for no other reason because they are the most desecrated. I agree completely...
