This blog will curate interesting content inspired by Saint Thomas Aquinas as part of the New Evangelization by the lay faithful. Students of St. Thomas are welcomed to contribute.
These are times when Christian philosophers are desperately needed to be involved with the culture and persuade it off the cliff, and for those on the cliff to turn back to a Christianity grounded in good philosophy. Philosophers are faith-pointers. As Pope Pius XIII says, “Philosophy, if rightly made use of by the wise, in a certain way tends to smooth and fortify the road to true faith, and to prepare the souls of its disciples for the fit reception of revelation.”
My aim with this blog is to lift the culture from its decent into the mire by appealing to what remains of the light of reason. Good thinkers are invited to submit articles on any topic, from theology and philosophy to politics and culture. If you’ve got something true, good, and beautiful to defend, please submit it.
You are invited to go after what needs to be gone after, and to say what needs to be said. This is no time for treading lightly and mincing words.
Since St. Thomas Aquinas is the recognized plumb-line of orthodoxy in Christian doctrine & philosophy, it is reasonably expected (though not required) that the grounds of argumentation will be distinctly Thomistic. All thoughtful, well-reasoned contributions will be published. If you would like to be a regular contributor, and I think your articles are fantastic, please send a short bio & you will be listed as such.
My goal is for Thomists to write on a variety of topics for the broader culture in service of the New Evangelization. Only well-reasoned and thoughtful commentary will be considered. Thank you for your interest!
I encourage spirited yet charitable discussion. All vicious, and/or stupid, and/or unhelpful comments will be promptly deleted, because none of these facilitate what I’m after here, which is fun reading and good, thoughtful content. (Unless, of course, the stupid and/or unhelpful comment perfectly illustrates a point being made). I hope you enjoy!
