Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

UST, Flynn, Nienstedt... the saga continues

This came up in the past couple of days but I've been too busy to post on it. However, a fairly full account is up at †Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam†: Shock therapy for freshmen at St. Thomas shockingly trite.

Suffice it to say that this is very bad news for the future of my "Catholic" university.

Additionally, I've defended Flynn many times when I didn't agree with him, but this, this just looks bad.

And just what does UST think it's going to accomplish by this little shell game? That's what I can't figure out - what do they REALLY think they're going to gain by all this, other than draw a lot of attention to themselves? Is that it, do they just want a lot of attention? Or, are they the spoiled child who tries to sneak around so as to both rebel against his parents, and yet continue to reap the benefits of mooching off of their parents' good name and the perks being their kid provides? You know how THOSE stories always end, right?

Please pray and fast for us here at UST and for our Archbishop and his successor!
