Mary Co-Redemptrix

In this little paper I would like to deal primarily with Holy Scripture. The theological arguments for Our Lady Co-Redemptrix from Tradition and the Magisterium have been more than adequately handled by Dr. Mark Miravalle in his excellent Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, Advocate, 1 and the marvelous The Mother of Our Saviour and Our Interior Life, by Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. 2 The reason that liberals like Ren? Laurentin et alia have been so successful in blocking attempts to define the doctrine of Mary Co-Redemptrix, is because they have first suppressed the correct reading of Genesis 3:15.

Is Laisneyism Catholic?

Fr. Fran?ois Laisney, a member of the Society of St. Pius X, the disciples of Archbishop Lefebvre, has written a book entitled Is Feeneyism Catholic? 1 I don't know what the exact canonical status of the Society of St. Pius X is at the moment, but I presume they still think that Vatican II is heretical, and that the Novus Ordo Mass is invalid. That someone would think that an ecumenical Council whose decrees have been approved by the Holy Father, no matter how badly phrased, is heretical, and that the Novus Ordo Mass which was established by Pope Paul VI with such a high authority, despite its ugliness, could be invalid, should tell us a priori that such a person could not do good theology.

An Introduction to the Wisdom Books
of the Old Testament

Finally, I would like to offer an addditional bonus for visiting these web pages, a little booklet entitled An Introduction to the Wisdom Books of the Old Testament.These seven brief articles appeared several years ago in the short-lived Center Review. They are available here for a free download either in whole or in part. The booklet is 40 pages long, each chapter being about 6 or 7 pages in length. I would especially recommend the first chapter, The Book of Job , which is only 5 pages long.

The Magus and the Scribe
A Christmas Story

The Magi were astronomers, the scientists of their day. Of course they had a lot of superstition mixed in with their science; they are called astrologers in  new translations indicating this, but one shouldn't underestimate them as scientists. Even contemporary scientists have plenty of superstition attached to their science, such as the theory of evolution, which is just superstition. These ancient scientists were terrific naked eye astronomers. A professor at Boston University, Gerald Hawkins, in studying the Stonehenge monument in England, discovered that it was a celestial observatory.

On Exonerating Pelagius

At the present time there is underway a vicious two pronged attack on the teaching of the Church concerning original sin. One attack is coming from what has been variously called liberalism, latitudinarianism, indifferentism, etc., and the other (often by the same men), from evolutionism.


 
“The Man Who Made Gold”

I have put the title of this little essay in quotation marks, because it is the title of an amusing fictitious account of a man who made gold by the great Catholic writer Hilaire Belloc. The book is full of funny illustrations with even funnier captions by his friend Gilbert Chesterton. Belloc and Chesterton must have had a wonderful time doing this book together.

FATHER MASSA AND THE MASSA DAMNATA

Fr. Mark S. Massa, S.J. a professor of sociology at Fordham, has just brought out a book entitled, Catholics and American Culture. We have just had this book read to us in the refectory during supper. It wouldn't be worth mentioning, except that the first chapter is on the Father Feeney Case and is entitled "Boundary Maintenance, St. Cyprian and Emil Durkheim." It is of full of both historical and theological errors, that I feel call for some comment.
