A Kneeling Theology

When theologians withhold their assent from all that the Church has consistently taught from the very beginning until now, they pretty much leave everything in ruins.

Ignatius and Polybius

According to St. Ignatius of Antioch, the bishop occupies a seat of governance no less authoritative than that of God Himself.

On Hedgehogs and Synods

The Hedgehog knows one big thing, but our Synod Fathers (and Mothers) seemed consumed with many lesser things.
