    I’ve read one review; now I’m reading Randy Engels’ articles at Our Lady’s Warrior… setting the scene,

    “[Peter’s] spirituality would be formed by his love for the Rule of St. Benedict and his attraction to the rigorous penance and individualistic practices of St. Romuald.”

    You know, Pope Francis fears priests like that.

  2. The Trasancos review is especially good.

  3. Brothers Codg. Smashing reviews and that both of these books contain material that is entirely ignored by the Shadow Church (which, frankly, is opposed to the content of each) is but another of the [uncountable failures of their glorious 1962-65 BCE (Besstest Council Ever) revolution within the form of Catholicism.

    If you want he truth you are just going to have to go out and get it on your own for the Shadow Church is occupied whoring after the zeitgeist

  4. Thanks, Brandon. As you probably know, Fr. Jaki is near and dear to my heart.

  5. I like reading Gifford Lectures, and The Road of Science and the Ways to God has been one of my favorites since I first read it in undergrad years and years ago. I have A Mind’s Matter on my shelf, and like to re-read it every couple of years. There’s always something worth thinking about in Fr. Jaki.

  6. Fr Paul McDonald says:

    I preached Epiphany about Christ as the Saviour of science.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
