As an Unreconstructed Ossified Manualist, this is the best thing I’ve seen in “Tutti”

As an Unreconstructed Ossified Manualist I have to say this is, so far, the best part I’ve seen in Tutti Frutti… Frutti Fratelli… Fratelli Tutti….

    Btw, Get Religion has some nice links to Amy Coney Barrett’s charismatic group. The linked article with “all the dirt” basically just talks about how People of Praise was another partially successful, partially failed charismatic group. Nothing criminal, although some leaders seem to have been a bit spiritually presumptuous or overreached or got sulky. It is an article from 1986, so the group must have gotten a second wind at some point. This guy’s main concern was that the group was too ecumenical, to the point of providing a generic interdenominational experience; and that they avoided joining up under Church structures and hierarchy too much, although everybody Catholic went to Mass diligently.

    The article says a lot of young newbies lived as guests in spare rooms in group leaders’ houses instead of in apartments or other college housing, and the Guardian says Barrett did this at Notre Dame with one Kevin Kernaghan and his wife (who gets mentioned a lot in the 1986 article) and other grad students. She seems to have met her husband there. Since the 1986 article says people were encouraged to date others in the group, that sounds plausible.

    “Barrett seems to have met her husband there” is what I meant.

    Oh, and a good thing noted on Roger Pearse’s patristic blog —

    The Greek-language “Patristic Text Archive” is now online not just for downloading, but with an English-language front end for us normal people to access it with. This is much handier than looking up Migne’s Patrologia Graeca volumes online, at least for certain authors, and I think some authors and works aren’t even in Migne. There are also links to digitized Greek manuscripts in various libraries all over the world. So it’s a one-stop shop.

    Yes, more deductive logic & systematic theology please. Reduce 4000+ words into a few syllogisms (like Msgr Schuler, Card Burke & Athanasius Shneider have communicated)

    The picture is from Jonny Quest, a cartoon show. There was also a Nineties remake. Race Bannon (real name, Roger) was an ex-racecar driver and pilot who worked for Jonny’s dad on expeditions as an explorer and bodyguard, and helped out around the lab. He also kept an eye on Jonny, his friend Hadji, and their dog Bandit. (And Race looked a lot like Doc Savage, except without the bronze hair.)

    Interesting that of the two secondary sources the first cites Zalba SJ, the second Royo Marin but without OP (Dominican). It’s a way to say, yeah, St Thomas was a Dominican, but the Jesuits are the real experts on his thought.

    Manualism is more closely related to neo scholasticism than to the thought of St Thomas
