Veritas et Sapientia
Mandeville, LA – “This is what is happening now. Those who support Trump based on his plans for the economy end up labeled fascists, those who support Kavanaugh based on his judicial history are rape apologists (or traitors), and those who support free speech are Nazis. It was similar to after the Parkland shooting when...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Thanks to Stella Morabito for digging this important essay up in the middle of the ritual defamation of Brett Kavanaugh. – M.Ç. – Ed.] Ritual Defamation is used to hurt, to intimidate, to destroy, and to persecute, and to avoid the dialogue, debate and discussion upon which a free society...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: In this post I coin the term Vaporology as in Vaporware to describe the study of a political phenomenon that doesn’t exist i.e. “conservatism”. – Ed. M.C.] “This is why conservatism, in the end, turns out to be a slower, less self-conscious version of liberalism. Liberalism takes as a principle...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: the following is excerpted from T.S. Elliot’s Little Gidding poem. MC-Ed.] If you came this way, Taking any route, starting from anywhere, At any time or at any season, It would always be the same: you would have to put off Sense and notion. You are not here to verify,...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from a letter written by 7 young and newly ordained, catholic priests. –MC-Ed.] The Synod’s Instrumentum Laboris (working document) concedes too much to the sexual revolution, which has caused such great harm to young people. Our generation comes from “liquid” modernity. We have grown up...

Mandeville, LA – “Perhaps the Kavanaugh freakish hearing, the distortion of the McCain funeral, the New York Times anonymous op-ed, the Bob Woodward hit book, the Biden rants, Hillary Clinton’s weigh-ins on sexual assault, and the petulant return of Barack Obama to the campaign trail will rouse the progressive base to the polls. MIKE CHURCH...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note, thanks to Winston Elliott and Steven Klugewicz at the Imaginative Conservative for granting permission for me to share Joseph Pearce’s essays with Mike Church readers and listeners, visit their site here.] Perhaps an apology might be necessary for the sheer audacity of beginning any essay with such a question and...

Mandeville, LA – [The following is excerpted from Joseph Pearce’s review of a new book; and particularly George Weigel’s Introduction to it, by Don J. Briel, Renewal of Catholic Higher Education, it is edited for continuity.- Ed. M.C.] It’s sad but true that bunkers are sometimes necessary as places to which we need to retreat,...

Mandeville, LA – “I myself had a characteristic experience in this respect. Some years before his death, I had the privilege of a discussion with Benedetto Croce, one of the greatest minds of our age. I had put forward the proposition that any society, in all its aspects, is always a unit in which the...

Mandeville, LA – “Our [education] system is based upon the assumption, popularly regarded as implicit in the doctrine of equality, that everybody is educable. This has been taken without question from the beginning; it is taken without question now. The whole structure of our system, the entire arrangement of its mechanics, testifies to this. Even...

Mandeville, LA  – [Editor’s note: While visiting with Mr. Aidan Mackey, in Oxford, Oxfordshire England, he receommended I read Hillaire Belloc’s poem, In Praise of Wine. I did and so enjoyed it, I’m sharing the conclusion here. Long live ChesterBelloc! – MC – Ed.] When from the waste of such long labour done I too must...

Mandeville, LA – “No rank, whether of civil or divine law, can be held in grace without holy justice. For those who are not corrected and those who do not correct are like members beginning to rot, and if the doctor were only to apply ointment without cauterizing the wound, the whole body would become fetid...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: On the Mike Church Show I have maintained since 2013 that there can be nothing “conservative” that doesn’t first acknowledge why something is worth “conserving” i.e. because God made it for the benefit of Man. Mister Matthew Johnson has put this into writing, True conservatives, please share, – Ed. M.C.]...

Mandeville, LA – ON PEASANT PROPRIETORSHIP If we leave things as they are, there will almost certainly be a crash of confiscation. “I have not dealt with any details touching distributed ownership, or its possibility in England, for the reason stated in the text. This book deals with what is wrong, wrong in our root of...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: This site and the Mike Church Show have held Dr Fesser’s position since the rumors about this began, but Dr. Fesser has placed the crisis in such an unambiguous form that the question must now be answered by every good-willed Catholic: confess the licit Death Penalty as dogma or be...

Mandeville, LA – This, therefore, is, in conclusion, my reason for accepting the religion and not merely the scattered and secular truths out of the religion. I do it because the thing has not merely told this truth or that truth, but has revealed itself as a truth-telling thing. The outer ring of Christianity is a...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Solenge Hertz wrote this essay in 2001, clearly seeing that Pope John Paul II’s monkeying around with CCC language on the death penalty was a opening shot in paving the way to end Church teaching on it. The death penalty, from the first one imposed on man by God in...

Mandeville, LA – “Catholic virtue is often invisible because it is the normal,” answered MacIan. “Christianity is always out of fashion because it is always sane; and all fashions are mild insanities. When Italy is mad on art the Church seems too Puritanical; when England is mad on Puritanism the Church seems too artistic. When you...

Mandeville, LA – “The Chicago of my boyhood was an intensely Catholic city. Ask someone where he lived and he was likely to answer with the name of his parish (St. Nicholas of Tolentine, St. Gregory’s). Catholic culture was everywhere in the country a hundred-fold stronger then than now Catholic culture was everywhere in the...

Mandeville, LA – “What the signs [of the times] actually tell us is that now—far more than in the past—the times distract us from eternity. Love of God is the first and greatest commandment, but no one today pays attention to it. Ultimate things are considered a private hobby that shouldn’t distract us from the...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I have taken Norman Angell’s point from The Great Illusion and added ‘America’ to the antagonizing country to illustrate that the point he was making in 1910 is even more relevant today.] “The forces which have brought about the economic futility of military power have also rendered it futile as...

Mandeville, LA – “The truth is that when Christ was born Pan for the first time began to stir in his grave. The pagan gods had become pure fables when Christianity gave them a new lease of life as devils. Thus wine was a sacrament with Christ; but drunkenness was not a sacrament as with...

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...
