A Brief Update

It's been a while since I've posted to this blog that what few readers I have are probably wondering if it's still active. I haven't gone away -- rather, in the past few months my attention has been devoted to another "offshoot" website/blog, justwar[[?], looking at a related debate the participants of which include many familiar names (Weigel, Neuhaus, Novak, and the Zwicks).

However, my study and research of the Church's reconciliation w/ the liberal tradition continues. Going "back to the sources," I found John Courtney Murray's We Hold These Truths in a recent used-book store expedition, which I'm currently reading. Over the course of the coming year I hope to pick up Schindler's Heart of the World, Center of the Church and Bright Promise, Failed Community: Catholics and the American Public Order, by Joseph A. Varacalli (who recently discovered this website). As I read I'll make sure to post some thoughts and observations, so please stay tuned.

So, in the meantime, I invite you to make use of the resources on this website. Likewise, I appreciate your recommendations, and if anybody has any thoughts they would like to contribute to the blog, feel free to email me. I'm always interested in other's thoughts on this issue.
