Principled

Today, a holy person told me that people leave the Church, either those from the liberal or conservative side, because they are “unprincipled.” I was surprised at this comment, because principles did not seem to be a problem with these people who are leaving, especially Trads, who are migrating to the SSPX and the schismatic

A Catholic Problem

I taught logic and debate for years. I taught my students how to argue rationally and not fall into the long list of fallacies. Most of my teaching was based on based on the Classical philosophical traditions. The old Catholic educational systems taught Logic to their pupils both in high school and in university. Some

A Member of the Remnant Writes
