The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Catholic Utopianism?

See this link

This is an interview with Dr. Peter Chojnowski concerning the "Back to the Land" Movement amongst traditional Catholics. It is worth downloading and listening to.

My only thought about all of it: "What wishful thinking!" Lately, I have been posting entries that are way too long, so I will make this one short. We have to sanctify our lives in the here and now. Christianity is not about creating ideal societies. It is about sanctifying the society we find ourselves in. An inherently Christian society is a contradiction in terms. Otherwise, monasteries would have never existed in the glory days of Christendom.

So everyone stay where you are and work out your salvation in fear and trembling!
