Put tradition forward
Letter writer wants philosophy like that put forward by St. Thomas Aquinas to have greater prominence again in Church.
Letter writer wants philosophy like that put forward by St. Thomas Aquinas to have greater prominence again in Church.

To the Catholic Sentinel:

Many articles and letters have referenced the “New Evangelization” for the Church. Such efforts can be promoted in one of two ways: By downplaying traditional teachings to be more accessible to a secular, modern mindset, or by emphasizing traditional teachings to clearly “stand apart” from worldliness. 

Option one is doomed because it does not provide a sufficiently compelling contrast to cause others to take the bold and difficult step of conversion or reversion.

More Scholastic philosophy, meatless Fridays, and Latin Masses, please.

Michael Estok, Portland
