Nostalgia: Going Home in a Homeless World

#ad
#ad
Gateway Editions #ad - Looking for a city that does not exist, as mere political error, the progressive treats original sin, which afflicts everyone, which afflicts only his opponents. In our own day, christian nostalgia stands in frank opposition to the secular usurpation of this longing. It is an ache for the homecoming. If he is a progressive, he dismisses it contemptuously, dreaming of a utopia to come, eager to bury a past he despises.

Only the future, which no one can know, is real to him. The greeks called it nostalgia. Post-modern man, homeless almost by definition, cannot understand nostalgia. The doctrine of the fall of man forestalls sentimental traditionalism by insisting that there has been no Eden since Eden. The benedict option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation.

Nostalgia: Going Home in a Homeless World #ad - And the revelation of heaven as our true and final home, directing man's longing to the next world, paradoxically strengthens and ennobles the pilgrim's devotion to his home in this world. Despising his fathers, he lives in a world without piety. Nostalgia rightly understood is not an invitation to repeat the sins of the past or to repudiate what experience and reflection have taught us, but to hear the call of sanity and sweetness again.

In this profound reflection, Anthony Esolen explores the true meaning of nostalgia and its place in the human heart. It is an idol that justifies all manner of evil and folly.

The Church We Believe in: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic

Paulist Press #ad - Such is the purpose of this book. While it is generally recognized that differences in ecclesiology are the ones that constitute the most stubborn obstacles to Christian reunion, there are good grounds for hope in the fact that most Christians do agree in professing their faith in "one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.

Indeed, honest facing up to the contradiction between our common faith in the "one church" and the divided state of Christianity is a prime motive for the ecumenical movement. Henry holt. It is true, of course, that the mere fact that Christians use the same words in professing their faith about the church does not eliminate their deep differences in ecclesiology.

Profoundly divergent answers will be given when one asks: what do you mean when you say "the church"? and How do you understand it to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic? Ecumenical progress, then, calls for the effort to reach a common under- standing of the faith we profess. Regnery Publishing. An essential step in this process is for Christians to seek to deepen and clarify their understanding of their faith to the light of their own respective traditions.

The Church We Believe in: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic #ad - Theology has an important role to play here, because theology is defined as "faith seeking understanding. Ecumenical dialogue is most fruitful when it is a concerted effort, on the part of people coming from different theological traditions, to seek a deeper understanding of the creed in which they already profess a common faith, in the hopes that such a deeper understanding will get beneath their differences to the common ground where they are at one.

What we are seeking here is an understanding of our profession of faith concerning the church, in the light of the Roman Catholic tradition.
