The Extraordinary Ordinary - Father George William Rutler

As we enter the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, there is a temptation to think that the Church means "Ordinary" in the dull and uninspired sense commonly implied by ordinariness;  however, "Ordinary" means a lot more than that.   Read more...

The Glue of Tolerance - William E. Carroll

In a world of values rather than virtue, education is seen only as clarification, and tolerance becomes a political and moral absolute. The appeal to tolerance too often deflects us from the important task of examining the rightness or wrongness of our behaviour; thus, it really is no more than a claim for the primacy of “I’ll do as I please.” In this respect, tolerance serves as a kind of moral prophylactic; it offers only a false sense of security from the real dangers to the social order.  Read more...

Yet throughout history the prevailing consensus has been that guilt is a natural human response to one’s deliberate and voluntary complicity in moral wrongdoing.  Read more...
