Veritas et Sapientia
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. Despite the triumph at the end of Return of the Jedi, the political situation in the Star Wars universe has reverted to its previous state....

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...

Mandeville, LA – “The anti-Trump movement suffers from insularity. Most of the people who detest Trump don’t know anybody who works with him or supports him. And if they do have friends and family members who admire Trump, they’ve learned not to talk about this subject. So they get most of their information about Trumpism...

Mandeville, LA – Analogies can easily be multiplied, if one wants to push a thesis; but the point is that the greatest threat to world peace and international justice is the nation state gone bad, claiming an absolute power, deciding questions and making “laws” beyond its competence. The world divorced from the God who created and...

Mandeville, LA – “Jesus told his disciples that there will be people at the threshold of heaven, claiming to have done great things in his name, only to be told, “I never knew you”—people like the rich man whose spiritual valuation was all wrong. As we enter the New Year, these warnings should prompt us...

Mandeville, LA –  [Editor’s Note: In this Papal Bull, Pope John XXIII captures the fundamental problem that gnaws at Modern Society: Men are defiant when confronted by the Truth especially when that Truth involves a proper ordering of their lives and their thoughts. This is evidenced by the sheer number of men who choose to...

Mandeville, LA – According to the dominant paradigm shared by most people, religious and secular alike, the world is now divided into two camps: people of faith and people of no faith. Occam’s razor says they were in religious ecstasy—their kind of religious ecstasy, in which abortion on demand becomes the gnostic equivalent of a central sacrament. But this...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: To those Christians who do not have a loving and abiding devotion to the Mother of Our Lord consider, as Saint Bernard of Clairvaux exhorts, that Mary of Nazareth, immaculately conceived, still had her Free Will and could have told Gabriel ” no”. As a matter of fact, Gabriel was...

Mandeville, LA – If this kingdom was so great and lasting without the aid of the gods, why is the ample territory and long duration of the Roman empire to be ascribed to the Roman gods? For whatever is the cause in it, the same is in the other also. But if they contend that the prosperity of the other also is to be...

Mandeville, LA – About 10 years ago I wrote an article for Austrian readers explaining that American politicians who say they’ll “get government off our backs” have no intention of keeping that promise. Their real plan is to provide favors for their donors at taxpayers’ expense and with a little luck maybe create a new agency...

Mandeville, LA – “Joachim and Anne were the parents of Mary. Joachim kept as strict a watch over his thoughts as a shepherd over his flock, having them entirely under his control. For the Lord God led him as a sheep, and he wanted for none of the best things. When I say best, let...

Mandeville, LA – “If I’m not loved, that’s just too bad! I tell the whole truth, and if anyone doesn’t wish to know the truth, let her not come looking for me. We should never allow kindness to degenerate into weakness. When we have scolded someone with just reason, we must leave the matter there,...

Mandeville, LA  – From the Gospels it appears that there were a lot of bigwigs Jesus didn’t like. He spoke harshly about scribes and Pharisees. And he had problems with the religious authorities, who condemned him to death, and rich people, whom he advised to divest themselves of their wealth. (On one memorable occasion, he drove...

Mandeville, LA – Let’s look at it another way: Has there ever been a time when the Church, from pope to parish priest to parishioner in the pew, was perfect? But there have always been saints. There have always been saints because there have always been those few individuals who didn’t, in this sense, fret about...

Mandeville, LA – “Surely, there is at this day a confederacy of evil, marshalling its hosts from all parts of the world, organizing itself, taking its measures, enclosing the Church of Christ as in a net, and preparing the way for a general Apostasy from it. Whether this very Apostasy is to give birth to...

Mandeville, LA – Conservatism in a postmodern moment must therefore be different than the conservatism that motivated Burke or Taft or Disraeli or Reagan. The school of conservatism that might be most fitted for this moment, is paradoxically, the one that is the one least inclined to modernity. This would be a form of conservatism known...

Mandeville, LA – The bronze dragons in the assault move ponderously and open breaches in the city walls. Fiery versions are thwarted by the smooth, steep incline of Gondolin’s hill. But a third variety, the iron dragons, carry Orcs within and move on ‘iron so cunningly linked that they might flow … around and above all...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: In my talk “How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Save The Free World” I quoted G.K. Chesterton our Veritas et Sapientia muse on society being run by men in dresses, listen to my talk here, the Chesterton Quote appears inline.– Ed., M.C.] Libraries have been written on modernity’s seepage...
