Veritas et Sapientia
Mandeville, LA – Truth is the self-manifestation and state of evidence of real things. Consequently, truth is something secondary, following from something else. Truth does not exist for itself alone. Primary and precedent to it are existing things, the real Knowledge of truth, therefore, aims ultimately not at ‘truth” but, strictly speaking, at gaining sight of...

Mandeville, LA – “St. Augustine, St. Gregory Magnus, St. Thomas, Bellarmin, Suarez, and the theologians generally, hold that princes derive their power from God through the people, or that the people, though not the source, are the medium of all political authority, and therefore rulers are accountable for the use they make of their power...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I did not discover the identity of the author of the following, only their online pen-name: The Zippy Catholic. – MC] A fairly typical comment in casual conversation: “He was considering becoming a priest, but chose to pursue a career in medicine instead.” The vocational alternatives to vowed religious life...

Mandeville, LA – The eighteenth-century theories of the social contract have been exposed to much clumsy criticism in our time; in so far as they meant that there is at the back of all historic government an idea of content and co-operation, they were demonstrably right. But they really were wrong, in so far as they...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note– Today on Maundy Thursday, I chose this passage from the Gospel of the Beloved Apostle, John, in the spirit of grasping the unfathomable Humility Our Lord displays through His love for His chosen, commanding them and by extension, Us. “For I have given you an example, that as I have done...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note: I suggest a complete reading of this chapter from Hilaire Belloc’s “The Great Heresies” to take in the complete history of what Islam did and is thus capable of, nay, destined to do, again.] Now against the great heresies, when they acquire the driving power of being the new and fashionable...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note- on the advice of Brad Birzer, I downloaded and read Christopher Dawson’s essay on Christianity and Sex, I am not disappointed that I did.] “The institution of the family inevitably creates a vital tension which is creative as well as painful. For human culture is not instinctive. It has to...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: In today’s Pile of prep I mused about the popularity of Donald Trump as a “Hail Mary” pass by American voters to save American and by extension, “Democracy”. But as Chesterton explains, it is Democracy that is the ill plaguing modern man, but he cannot see it.] – “In case...

Mandeville, LA – It is believed that St Patrick composed this prayer while preparing for his final confrontation with the pagan hordes of Ireland. “I bind to myself today The strong virtue of the Invocation of the Trinity: I believe the Trinity in the Unity The Creator of the Universe. I bind to myself today...

Mandeville, LA  – “In 1797 our government concluded a “Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli, or Barbary,” now known simply as the Treaty of Tripoli. Article 11 of the treaty contains these words: As the Government of the United States…is not in any...

Mandeville, LA – “We need to reflect more deeply on the meaning and significance of the bestowal of honors in relation to the Catholic identity and mission of our institutions. I would encourage Notre Dame and other Catholic colleges and universities to “raise the bar” in considering the granting of honors. I believe a higher...

Mandeville, LA – From Walker Percy’s Lost In The Cosmos, The Last Self Help Book. PC3 stands for Prime Centauri, our nearest star.  Earthship: [We] [r]equest permission to land…. PC3: Not quite yet. You haven’t answered our question about C[consciousness]-type. Earthship: What do you mean by type of consciousness? PC3: We are Cls. We wanted to...

Mandeville, LA – “In truth, all human values find their root in Revelation; everything immediately human is related uniquely to Revelation. Man is related to God through Faith, but Faith is the effect of divine grace freely given and it draws the substance of all things human into itself. As a result, a Christian Order of life could come into existence...

Mandeville, LA – “Economic fallacy”? Mercantilists (even if they don’t call themselves that anymore) have always worked, often successfully, to convince the American people that their political and economic system which favors special interest groups instead benefits everybody. The “trickle down” theory of which we heard so much in the 1980s is an example. Do you...

Mandeville, LA – “To sum up the iniquity of this nation in one comprehensive charge, it is godlessness : not atheism in the philosophical sense of denying the existence of God, but that practical atheism which ignores the law and authority of God and the requirements of religion in both public and private affairs: which leaves...

Mandeville, LA – “What I wish to emphasise is the duality of the human requirement when it comes to the question of size: them is no single answer. For his different purposes man needs many different structures, both small ones and large ones, some exclusive and some comprehensive. Yet people find it most difficult to...

Mandeville, LA – “Let us now approach our subject from another angle and ask what is actually needed. In the affairs of men, there always appears to be a need for at least two things simultaneously, which, on the face of it, seem to be incompatible and to exclude one another. We always need both...

Mandeville, LA – “Now in all these schemings of theory, by which we have been contriving how to generate, or how we have generated, a government without going above humanity, we lose out all moral ideas, and take away all tonic forces necessary to government. Our merely terrene, almost subterranean, always godless fabric, becomes more...

Mandeville, LA – “Now, it is the peculiar honour of Europe since it has been Christian that while it has had aristocracy it has always at the back of its heart treated aristocracy as a weakness—generally as a weakness that must be allowed for. If any one wishes to appreciate this point, let him go...

Mandeville, LA – The city worker is apt to consider farming under any conditions as being beneath him–an inferior occupation all the way round. The tenant farmer of long standing may regard independent landownership as a status utterly beyond his attainment. Both of these attitudes must be changed if the general redistribution of farm property is...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note-the following is excerpted from David Wemhoff’s Culture Wars Magazine review of the epic book “The Most Controversial Decision-Truman, The Atom Bomb and the Defeat of Japan”] – “[Wilson] Miscamble mentions context as justification for Truman’s evil becoming right. Judging from what he has written, part of that context is the widespread...

Mandeville, LA – In short, the whole world being divided about whether the stream was going slower or faster, became conscious of something vague but vast that was going against the stream. Both in fact and figure there is something deeply disturbing about this, and that for an essential reason. A dead thing can go with...

Mandeville, LA – “Northrop Frye, in speaking of the pattern of comedy, describes it as a “parabola”: “a U-shaped plot, with the action sinking into deep and potentially tragic complications and then suddenly turning upward into a happy ending.” The bottom of this figure Frye calls “saturnalia,” after the ritualized and socially purgative disorder of...

Mandeville, LA –  Wilhelm Röpke as Successful Prophet: “Fortunately, in discussing family size, Röpke’s priority lay elsewhere. While raising the matter in the context of the population question, he had a larger purpose in asking: [W]hat happens to man and his soul? What happens to the things which cannot be produced or expressed in monetary...

Mandeville, LA – What is really a long way off is this individuality and liberty the Daily Mail praised. It is the tower that a man has built for himself that is seen in the distance. It is Private Enterprise that is Utopian, in the sense of something as distant as Utopia. It is Private Property...

Mandeville, LA – Peace is undoubtedly that state which proposes to society the best chance for the continuance of freedom and happiness, and the situation of America is such as to expose her to fewer occasions for war than any other nation, whilst it also disables her from gaining anything by war. But if, by indirect...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: This passage from Bledsoe was never answered by any Republican at the time, indeed, remains unanswered. Bledsoe’s assertion is that the States formed the Federal government BY their accession and if this formation required their “accession” then the Union can be unmade by withdrawing that consent.] In like manner Gouverneur...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: The Modern World has produced such grave errors in philosophical thought that the very definition of words used in our incessant conversations are corrupted. Take the term “socialism”, the cousin of “communism”, it is defined by the corrupt as wholly an economic tyranny, the great Wilhelm Ropke explains the nonsense...

Mandeville, LA – “This is a naked judicial claim to legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power; a claim fundamentally at odds with our system of government. Except as limited by a constitutional prohibition agreed to by the People, the States are free to adopt whatever laws they like, even those that offend the esteemed Justices’ “reasoned judgment.” A system...

Sapientia et Veritas – “Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under...

Mandeville, LA –  [Editor’s note: Today is the first day of Lent not associated with a Holy Day and a good time to humbly perform an Examen of Conscience and consider what penance may be prescribed. It’s not enough to agitate a moral “revival” unless we know what morality we wish to revive.] “With the...

Mandeville, LA – The TV comedian Jimmy Kimmel, aired a “comedy sketch” lats week that makes Our Lord a GOP candidate, repeating GOP one liners. Some think this public blasphemy is funny. It isn’t. Here is Chesterton from his book Heretics explaining why it’s not funny. “The theory of the unmorality of art has established...

Mandeville, LA – “There is this exceptionally beneficial and fruitful advantage to be derived from the study of the past, that you see, set in the clear light of historical truth, examples of every possible type. From these you may select for yourself and your country what to imitate, and also what, as being mischievous...

Mandeville, LA – “As soon as I had clearly in my mind this conception of something solid in the solitary and unique character of the divine story, it struck me that there was exactly the same strange and yet solid character in the human story that had led up to it; because that human story also had a root...

Mandeville, LA – “Understood the resolve; in this sense, the Americans in general are known to understand it; and not a member of the Congress has stood forth, to remove the mistake, or to soften the common interpretation. Till something of the Kind is thus done, and the language of the resolve is other wise...

Mandeville, LA – The Iowa Caucus is today and election 2016 is now officially here, thus this Sapientia et Veritas explores the popularity of Socialism, the little brother of Communism and Senator Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and yes, 10/12ths of the Republican field. Replacing “Communism” with “democracy”, Pope Pius XI predicted AND explained our current...

Mandeville, LA –  “At the time of the Enlightenment there was an attempt to understand and define the essential moral norms, saying that they would be valid “etsi Deus non daretur,” even in the case that God did not exist. In the opposition of the confessions and in the pending crisis of the image of...

Sapientia et Veritas – “What historians have come to call the Whiskey Rebellion was an armed uprising against the United States government in the latter half of 1794, which took place primarily in and around Pittsburgh in southwestern Pennsylvania. George Washington and John Marshall both thought that the Whiskey Rebellion was the single most significant event in the...

Mandeville, LA – “On the contrary, Augustine says in a sermon on the son of the centurion [Ep. ad Marcel. cxxxviii]: “If the Christian Religion forbade war altogether, those who sought salutary advice in the Gospel would rather have been counselled to cast aside their arms, and to give up soldiering altogether. On the contrary,...
