Catholicism and the Bourgeois Mind - Christopher Dawson

The question of the bourgeois involves a real issue which Christians cannot afford to shirk. For it is difficult to deny that there is a fundamental disharmony between bourgeois and Christian civilization and between the mind of the bourgeois and the mind of Christ.   Read more...

Catholicism: What Else is There? - James V. Schall, S.J.

Catholicism has never been intellectually more coherent or - ironically - culturally weaker. I would be presumed to be brash if I were to propose that Catholicism has no intellectual enemies worthy of it anywhere on the modern scene. But this circumstance seems to be in fact the case.

Christianity – Alien Presence or Foundation of the West? - Christoph Cardinal Schonborn

Civilization in Crisis - Christopher Dawson

We have become accustomed to take the secular character of modern civilization for granted. We have most of us never known anything else and consequently we are apt to think that this is a natural and normal state of things. Actually of course this state of things is far from being normal.  Read more...

Closing time? Jacques Barzun on Western Culture - Roger Kimball

“From Dawn to Decadence”, Mr. Barzun’s overview of the last five-hundred years of Western cultural history, is a magnificent summa of his concerns as a thinker and historian.

Consumerism: A Subtle Corroder of Virtue - Ray Guarendi

Consumerism seems to me to be the Number 1 corporate sin of Christians; it's the sin that affects the most of us the most. We are simply so deep into it we don't see it anymore. Our desire for stuff supersedes everything. We are distracted, owned, tempted and seduced by it.  Read more...
