New Home!

We are moving, because I say so. I can't be having with the faff of cookie clashes between the login for blogger and my real-life gmail account. Now I've tried it a bit I've found that Wordpress is actually a bit of a pain for posting, but hey, we can always move back. Huge hassle to move the links and so on, but niver mind.

Motu Proprio - The Home Straight?

Monday, June 11, 2007

Insights into the Papal mind...

A Central European friend rang me yesterday. She had been speaking to an learned friend of hers who recently spoke to the Holy Father. The Pope said that the Motu Proprio 'has already been on my desk several times' and that he too is surprised it is all taking so long. I'm not sure if this is good news or bad news or what 'on my desk several times' might mean.

Retitling Austen

Ukok tagged us to do this thing where you mix up half of one title and half of another. Um.

Journal of Laodicea

Notices of Books

New edition of Jane Austen's masterful little early piece, Essence and Existence.

Thomas Aquinas werkliste; An opusculum recently confirmed as authentic, its clearly English provenance revolutionising Thomistic biography; De Superbia et Opinio Preiudicata.

Recently published;
  • Eamonn Alcott's groundbreaking study of '68 in the light of the postwar women's lib movement, drawing on detailed archival domestic documentation and personal reminiscence, The Stripping of the Women.
  • Louise M. Duffy's account of the religious revolution that began around the same time as it was experienced by the Catholic in the pew, Little Altars.


Not very good, but the best I could come up with.

Exercise. 1) Write some more. 2) Translate Sense and Sensibility into scholasticese.(Just the title, silly.)
