Today at First Things there is a powerful and persuasive piece by Josef Seifert, former Dietrich von Hildebrand Chair of Realist Phenomenology at the International Academy of Philosophy in Spain.
It is clear that there is now a not so subtle persecution ramping up by the champions of ambiguity against those who hold traditional values and affirm perennial teachings.
Today, in the midst of truly a lot of things to do, I decided that Seifert’s piece was so good, so measured and well written that it had to be made available beyond those who have time to read webpages. People might have time to absorb it as they drive, run, or do chores…. that’s how I get through a lot of books, after all. Seifert’s essay has great information and good arguments which all of us need to have cold so that when we have discussions, we can know what’s what and offer reasons for our hope and faith in charity.
Fr. Z kudos to First Things and to Prof. Seifert.
