veritas et sapientia
Mandeville, LA – In Christendom, Gierke wrote, “Church and State were two Co-ordinate Powers” between which there was to be “an inseverable connexion and an unbroken interaction which must display itself in every part and also throughout the whole” of society. The Church, in short, was the soul of the body politic. But with the...

Mandeville, LA – There is a recurring theme on my radio show about the parasite class that the “enlightenment” has created. This class produces poverty, war and lust as sicknesses disguised as ecstasies. To keep the perversions from appearing to be the destructive forces they are, religion has been corrupted to embrace and propagate the...

Mandeville, LA – When I took my seat in the Convention, I found them attempting to bring forward a system which, I was sure, never had entered into the contemplation of those I had the honor to represent, and which, upon the fullest consideration, I considered not only injurious to the interest and rights of this...

Mandeville, LA – By the early twenty-first century, Americans had become accustomed to, even took for granted, virtually everything against which George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had warned: gigantic public and private debt, a massive national government, entangling foreign alliances, a standing army, undeclared war in the form of military interventionism, the destruction of American agrarianism,...

Mandeville, LA – “In Paradise there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise there...

Mandeville, LA – “A real change however came with the Protestant revolt. Although, at this — one might almost say — sociological level, the alteration was not that great in Anglican or Lutheran regions (where rejection of the Catholic Liturgical heritage was similarly ambiguous), it tended to be in Calvinist areas. There, there was little...

Mandeville, LA – “To many who have no sympathy with Catholicism, who inherit the old Protestant animosity to the Church (although doctrinal Protestantism is now dead) and who think that any attack on the Church must somehow or other be a good thing, the struggle already appears as a coming or present attack on what...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note: Melvin E. Bradford was a titan in the stand made against Leo Strauss and his army of faux intellectuals responsible for the rise of today’s neocons and the religion of ‘Murican Exceptionalism”. Bradford wrote this essay in the late 1990’s. – Ed. M.C.] “Predictably, Jefferson’s Union did die­ in 1861. And in...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: I’ve used this passage from G.K. Chesterton’s What’s Wrong With The World in more than one talk I’ve given recently and find it both humorous and provocative. Enjoy! – M.C. Ed.] “There is an awful armor of ice which may be the legitimate protection of a more delicate organism; but whatever...

Mandeville, LA – [The following was written by Sir Walter Scott.] Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land! Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d, As home his footsteps he hath turn’d From wandering on a foreign strand! If such there...

Mandeville, LA – “If the lady has any thing difficult in her dispositions, avoid what is rough, and attach her good qualities to you. Consider what are otherwise as a bad stop in your harpsichord. Do not touch on it, but make yourself happy with the good ones. Every human being, my dear, must thus...

Mandeville, LA – The standard narrative of Catholic moral progressivism is that Church moral doctrine doesn’t change; it just becomes completely irrelevant. God is asking you to do the opposite of what God’s law tells you that you should do. Since this has been going on for generations, from times well before the dreaded Vatican II,...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: This quote is sourced from a speech given by Samuel Untermayer titled “Sacred War”. There is no byline or date available that I can locate for this quote thus it remains circa 1935.- M.C. Ed.] “What in God’s name is wrong with America? Can it be that’ the only true...

Mandeville, LA – To complete the picture we may mention the mass of art books, which no more betrayed the regime under which they were appear- ing than did the books already mentioned. Here, too, there was a clear fundamental tendency — to turn away to the heritage of the past and to pay homage to...

Mandeville, LA – [From The Zippy catholic”] “In 1689, during the lifetime of John Locke, free speech meant that a member of parliament formally charged with a speech crime committed during a session of parliament had to be tried by parliament, not some other judicial body. In 2017, free speech means that you can say...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note – Professor’s Wax and Alexander’s analysis is spot on, they even use the term “solidarity” correctly, but what is missing is the call to action they do not make: The Church is the SOURCE of the bourgeois culture they say needs a return and only a revival of the parish...

Mandeville, LA – A poem by my Philosophy instructor Brother Francis Maluf. Available from Loredo Press here. What seek ye, brave and valiant knight Well Armed and Well prepared? So much in earnest for a fight So eager not to be spared. I am a Christian, he replied Summoned by Christ’s command, To free the...

Mandeville, LA – Education confers happiness and usefulness, and therefore demands attention. No maxim is more readily admitted than that a wise and free government should provide for the education of its citizens; but the maxim seems not to be admitted to its just extent. Nor is it only as a refuge from the dangers...

Mandeville, LA – If there are two staring and outstanding facts about science and religion at this particular moment, they are these. First, that science is claiming much less than it did to show us a solid and objective reality. And second, that religion is claiming much more than it did (at least for centuries past)...

Mandeville, LA – The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of...

Mandeville, LA – AND NOW, FRIENDS AND COUNTRYMEN, if the wise and learned philosophers of the elder world, the first observers of [m]utation and aberration, the discoverers of maddening ether and invisible planets, the inventors of Congreve rockets and Shrapnel shells, should find their hearts disposed to enquire what has America done for the benefit of mankind?...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: Maureen Malarkey feted Hillaire Belloc’s master-work on The Great Heresies, 80 years on, by essaying that Belloc was right and unless we turn back to The Faith, Islam will crush a secular Europe. – Ed., M.C.]  Belloc understood what modernity blithely ignores: cultures spring from religions. Religion is a vital...

Mandeville, LA – “The task of any Old Testament prophet could well be summed up by the phrase “stating the obvious.” The kings and people of Israel had been given the Law of Moses and knew full well what their obligations were, yet, as we all do, they routinely fell short of them, and even...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: as the City Journal’s Jane Hymowitz and others try to prepare us for the coming age of the robot and the eclipse of Man, it is worth reflecting how we got into the position where humanity itself, sans machines, now seems to be impossible. Wendell Berry provided a cynical view...

Mandeville, LA – “Human society is not a machine, and it must not be made such, even in the economic field…. Access to employment [shall not be] made to depend on registration in certain parties or in organization which deal with the distribution of employment…. It is necessary that humanity turn its gaze toward the...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note. The following appears in Joseph Pearce’s Small is Still Beautiful book as well as Mr. Tawney’s opus Religion and The Rise of Capitalism. – M.C.] “The secularization of political thought, which was to be the work of the next two centuries, had profound reactions on social speculation, and by the...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: On Monday, 19 June’s Mike Church Show I covered Jeff Bezo’s purchase of Whole Foods and the danger of concentrating massive wealth in the hands of so few, poses to the rest of the peasantry. – Mike Church, Ed.]  Most important in this context is the fact that the web...

Mandeville, LA – “Referencing Harold Berman’s magisterial Law and Revolution (1983), Dr. [Gary] North argues that the greatest threat to liberty has been the development and expansion of administrative law. This has overwhelmed the whole Western legal tradition, which is based on a common law accessible to the people, and substituted a positivist law defined...

Mandeville, LA – Undoubtedly the church consecrated civil rulers, but this did not imply that they received their power or right to govern from God through her; but implied that their persons were sacred, and that violence to them would be sacrilege; that they held the Christian faith, and acknowledged themselves bound to protect it, and...

Mandeville, LA – “If a married Christian couple is unfit to be foster parents because they would teach their children that homosexual conduct is immoral, then it would follow that a married Christian couple who teaches their natural children the same lesson is just as unfit, especially if the lesson harms gays and lesbians and...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s note: The following is excerpted from G.K. Chesterton’s “The Everlasting Man” and must be read as Chesterton intended, as more a comedic rebuke of the those worshipping science as religion in his day c. 1920. – M.C.] “In the land lit by that neighbouring star, whose blaze is the broad daylight,...

Mandeville, LA – “Perhaps the first place to start [a review of wearing intentionally ripped clothes] is by affirming that a ripped garment is not modest clothing because it is not real clothing. This claim is guaranteed to raise a firestorm, but from a purely metaphysical perspective, it must be admitted that such garments fail...

Mandeville, LA – “Clothes have always provided the most obvious indication of both dignity and definition. There was no question in anyone’s mind when Louis XIV walked into the room who was king. His yards of ermine and gold cloth made it easy. But today we see a man walking in midtown Manhattan wearing a...

Mandeville, LA – “The Lord has placed in Mary the fullness of all good. So that if there is anything of hope in us, if anything of grace, if anything of salvation, we may rest assured it has overflowed into us from her. With every fiber of our being, every feeling of our hearts, with...

Mandeville, LA – [The following is excerpted from the private revelations of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich.

Mike Church] On the night before His wonderful...

Mandeville, LA – “I know you share my hopes that our efforts to reach negotiated solutions will succeed. And I know, too, that you understand working toward this goal means remaining strong in our alliance and in our resolve to protect our nation’s freedom and independence. Our agreement on this point is why we can...

Mandeville, LA – “Basically, to be a good parent in America today you are expected to imagine the anguish and regret you’d feel if your child died and it was all your fault because you let him do something unsupervised. My crime was that I hadn’t indulged in what I call “worst-first thinking”—imagining the worst-case...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note: The following is excerpted from Professor Andrew Bacevich’s essay at the American Conservative website, here, I am still searching for a complete version of Williams’ essay. – Ed. M.C.] “If we justify our intervention in Vietnam on the grounds that it is crucial to our national security, we will soon...

Mandeville, LA – [Editor’s Note: This passage is pieced together from Will Rahn’s lengthy essay on the CBS News website. H/T Mihcael Brendan Dougherty. – Ed., M.C.] “One of the most arresting aspects of the start of the Trump era is that nearly everyone, regardless of their political persuasion, seems convinced that their side is...

Mandeville, LA – “Democratic governments will be able to become violent and even cruel in certain moments of great agitation and great dangers; but these crises will be rare and passing. When I think about the petty passions of the men of our times, about the softness of their mores, about the extent of their...
