The Anti-Modernist Academia #4: To Serve And Protect Tradition

The Anti-Modernist Academia #4: To Serve And Protect Tradition

The last three Anti-Modernist Academia articles explored the components of Little Witch Academia from the perspective of characters who previously displayed beliefs consistent with Modernist tendencies, as expounded in the 1907 encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis of Pope St. Pius X. In the first, Professor Croix Meridies and her latent scientism were symptoms of rationalism, which … Continue reading The Anti-Modernist Academia #4: To Serve And Protect Tradition

The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

The world we live in was, morally speaking, far different from that of 70 years ago. The existence of God, as discerned by the study of the material world, His Providence, and the sacredness of His rules were the guiding force which led society's lifestyle, law, and behaviour with little opposition. Places like Quebec, Ireland, … Continue reading The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

The Anti-Modernist Academia #1: Professor Croix, The Rationalist

The Anti-Modernist Academia #1: Professor Croix, The Rationalist

I have made it no secret about my admiration for Studio Trigger's 2017 fantasy series, Little Witch Academia. On the storytelling end, it's an endearing, fun show about Akko's journey to becoming a witch accompanied by many fancy moments - be it her time in Sucy's schizophrenic mental world, the rivalry with prodigy classmate Diana … Continue reading The Anti-Modernist Academia #1: Professor Croix, The Rationalist

St. Pius V Corner: Saving Souls, One Deed At A Time

St. Pius V Corner: Saving Souls, One Deed At A Time

The Dogma of Purgatory is too much forgotten by the majority of the faithful; the Church Suffering, where they have so many brethren to succour, whither they foresee that they themselves must one day go, seems a strange land to them. This truly deplorable forgetfulness was a great sorrow to Saint Francis de Sales. “Alas!” … Continue reading St. Pius V Corner: Saving Souls, One Deed At A Time

St. Pius V Corner: The Concupiscence Of The Digidestined

St. Pius V Corner: The Concupiscence Of The Digidestined

It is likewise a matter of common experience that the passions are a source of many temptations and sins. Often they are antecedent (not premeditated or willed), as when they arise from bodily states over which one has no control or from imaginations strongly fixed in the mind, and at the same time tend to … Continue reading St. Pius V Corner: The Concupiscence Of The Digidestined

St. Pius V Corner: An Unbloody Sacrifice Without A Divine Redeemer

St. Pius V Corner: An Unbloody Sacrifice Without A Divine Redeemer

Hence it is that Christ is not only God, but very God indeed - very God of very God, insomuch that He Himself is the Truth, If, then, we enquire His Name, it is "the Truth;" if we seek to know His natural rank and dignity, He is so truly the very Son of God, … Continue reading St. Pius V Corner: An Unbloody Sacrifice Without A Divine Redeemer

St. Pius V Corner: Open-Air Ecumaniacs

St. Pius V Corner: Open-Air Ecumaniacs

And here it seems opportune to expound and to refute a certain false opinion... by which non-Catholics seek to bring about the union of the Christian churches... They add that the Church in itself, or of its nature, is divided into sections; that is to say, that it is made up of several churches or … Continue reading St. Pius V Corner: Open-Air Ecumaniacs
