Invitation to FR Catholics and Interested Friends
DETAILS AVAILABLE HERE ^

Posted on 02/13/2002 7:52:19 AM PST by Askel5

Traditional Catholic Action
Salon & Soiree
New Orleans, Louisiana
March 15th-17th (St. Patrick's Day Weekend)





CATHOLIC ACTION


Catholic Action is an apostolate. Its end is to win men to Christ as men were won to Christ by Peter and Paul.

Is is a social apostolate. It seeks to restore right order in society, to re-create society. But its action is not political. The breaking societies of the West cannot be renewed by economic or political panaceas.

Is is a moral sickness from which the body of society suffers, and it will not be cured by local plasters upon local symptoms. Politics, economics are phases of human behavior, but human behavior is inevitably determined by the right values which men hold, by their sense of right and wrong ...

Catholic Action restores society by converting it to Christ.

Restoring All Things: A Guide to Catholic Action,
John Fitzsimons and Paul McGuire (Sheed & Ward, 1938)

As discussed several months ago (far too early for most to commit), you are invited to attend a traditional Catholic Action weekend in New Orleans.

Be forewarned that there is a major convention in town that weekend. For that reason, I am happy to help with securing hotel and restaurant reservations as well as providing what transportation help to and from the airport or outer-lying hotels as is possible.

Please contact me if you have any questions.





N.B.

As noted in the link, I will be preparing little binders for attendees and am interested in collecting lists of "picks" from all interested FR Catholics ... whether or not you can attend ... so that I can compile a sourcebook of ready references to include:

  • authors and books
  • periodicals
  • websites
  • traditional Catholic organizations of note
  • so-called "Catholic" organizations and networks on which to keep an eye
  • miscellany ... as related to the proposed topics intended for discussion -- liturgy, priesthood, human life, etc. -- or simply personal favorites.

In order to save money, all binder materials and the substance of discussions/presentations will be uploaded to the net and available by electronic transmission.

I'm confused ... there seem to be two Catholic Lists (one is group 301 and one is group 97). It looks as though I bumped 301 but it's only 97 who shows any post activity. Would you mind lobbing in your bump list just to be sure?

Definitely sounds interesting! I may be out of the country on those dates, unfortunately, but I am printing out the info for future reference...

But just a suggestion for a topic: Islam. I do not think this is being addressed properly in Catholic Churches, or at any rate, the ones in my neck of the woods, who seem to have forgotten exactly what is special about Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. I'd love to hear orthodox Catholics comment on this. And it's sure an undeniably relevant topic!

Brainstorming some discussion topics for consideration. What about Sacred Art, Architecture, and Music; Christian Freedom: the Individual and Community (we could get way over our heads real fast on this one); or Catholic Authors?

Thank you very much for the invitation. I just checked and you're about 680 miles away.

I'm an impulsive traveler, so give me a reminder bump about one week prior please. I just received my ashes.

Those are all great for the "Open" discussion as a treat to ourselves and another reason I'm hopeful that folks who can't attend will consider submitting their contributions by e-mail to me.

I'm hopeful the actual presentations will be geared toward those topics we argue as Catholics out here in cyberspace.

In light of our own Archbishop's letter in the Clarion this issue, I think the Cardinal Law scandal broken to compete for space with annual Right to Life activities coupled with the old KC Star expose on homosexual priests might make for a good start on sifting fact from fiction.

You best not be teasing me ... I'll bump you as requested i the HOPES you can indeed drop in. What a treat it would be to see you again ... would more than make up for the fact you ditched us at CPAC to go laze in the sun on a beach somewhere.

Best regards, guy. (Crossing my fingers ...)

Hi Askel5,

Terribly sorry I won't be able to attend. Sounds like a great event and one which I would enjoy greatly. Here are some picks for the 'binder':

* authors and books:
Dietrich von Hildebrand: Trojan Horse in the City of God (I read that one last summer - excellent!)
Pierre Blet: Pius XII and World War II (A good rebuttal of the current revisionist lies currently out there.)
Ian Wilson: The Blood and the Shroud (The best book on the Shroud of Turin I've ever read.)

* periodicals
New Oxford Review
The Wanderer
(I subscribe to both of these).

* websites
http://forum.catholic.org/ (I post here occasionally. )
http://www.arxpub.com (Shameless plug for my business: A Catholic-leaning book publisher)
* traditional Catholic organizations of note * so-called "Catholic" organizations and networks on which to keep an eye * miscellany ... as related to the proposed topics intended for discussion -- liturgy, priesthood, human life, etc. -- or simply personal favorites.

Oops! I posted before I was finished. Let's try that again...

Pinging Claud 'cause I know he'll have something to add here...

* authors and books:
Dietrich von Hildebrand: Trojan Horse in the City of God (I read that one last summer - excellent!)
Pierre Blet: Pius XII and World War II (A good rebuttal of the current revisionist lies currently out there.)
Ian Wilson: The Blood and the Shroud (The best book on the Shroud of Turin I've ever read.)

* periodicals
New Oxford Review
The Wanderer
(I subscribe to both of these).

* websites
http://forum.catholic.org/ (I post here occasionally. )
http://www.arxpub.com (Shameless plug for my business: A Catholic-leaning book publisher)
The Catholic Encyclopedia (Extremely useful)
EWTN Website (Also extremely useful). ZENIT (For the Catholic news junkie).

* traditional Catholic organizations of note
Mater Ecclesiae Mission Our local traditional parish
The Catholic League Perhaps not 'traditional' but you gotta love these guys.

* so-called "Catholic" organizations and networks on which to keep an eye
The only one I can come up with right now is Catholics for Free Choice but their obnoxiousness is pretty much common knowledge around here.

* miscellany ... as related to the proposed topics intended for discussion -- liturgy, priesthood, human life, etc. -- or simply personal favorites.

Might I suggest the following topics?

Catholic Activism: How best to shine bright lights on the most egregious perverters of Catholic teaching within the Church. In my opinion, fellows like Fr. McFarland at Holy Cross would be much less likely to allow productions like 'The Vagina Monologues' on campus if they were deluged with angry faxes, phone calls and emails every time. Can this nascent effort be turned into a powerful national network?

Homosexuality in the Priesthood: Given the recent scandals in Boston and other places, I think it would be good to discuss how this scourge might be rooted out and what we, as laity, can do about it.

The excommunication of Catholic Politicians: Our wonderful new governor in NJ, Jim McGreevey, has got me thinking about this one. Clearly, it's an idea whose time has come.

That's about all I've got right now. Helpful?

Another reason I'd like to see a core group of militant Catholic here on FR come up with the basis for a little website of resources and links (a la St. Patrick's) as well as networked activism.

If we route our Calls to Action through same as we post them here, we might end up with a tidy little hit list and ever-growing database of names, addresses and histories for future reference purposes when researching the profile of this or that organization, individual, Catholic college or religious order.

Could be cool ...

I'll be there in spirit, but there's no way I can get to the Big Easy this weekend.

One of my favorite sites for finding out what's really happening in certain parts of AmChurch is Roman Catholic Faithful . They're active principally in the Midwest, Northeast and I'd advise anyone with a little time or money to spare to support these people.

When it comes to uncovering corruption in the church, they are in the vanguard.

Re: two Catholic Lists

The one that has been in use is #97. If you go to the bump list register, you can see that #301 is prefixed with an asterisk and #97 is not. Perhaps the creator of list #301 on 1/28/02 (I'm not mentioning the screen name out of consideration although it is easily seen on the bump-list page) didn't understand that when one types "Catholic_list" OR "*Catholic_list" in the reply to box the FR software posts the bump as "*Catholic_list" and to bump list #97. So, list #301 is pretty much obsolete.

The Ave Maria Foundation is doing great work and is faithful to the magisterium. Most of the foundation's apostolates have weblinks at the following web address:

I think we're setting a record here so far. JimRobs warning post may have helped.

Thanks so much for the nice invitation--I am in school, working on my BS (NO funny remarks, please!) and since I'm also working, I've got to put all plans to travel aside for at least another year and a half...The meeting will certainly be in my prayers--!

P. S. the New Oxford Review is online, now, the past issues, and they are terrific!
