Pelikan on Living Tradition

“Tradition is the living faith of the dead; traditionalism is the dead faith of the living. Tradition lives in conversation with the past, while remembering where we are and when we are and that it is we who have to decide. Traditionalism supposes that nothing should ever be done for the first time, so all that is needed to solve any problem is to arrive at the supposedly unanimous testimony of this homogenized tradition.”

Star Wars: Episode III

Saw this work of wonder last night. The film left me with many deep impressions, but overall sadness.

Let me say two things:

1. Depending on your view of children's minds, you may want to leave the kids home for your first viewing. The film portrays some very intense themes.

2. Can you say dispassionate Jedi. This is something that is demonstrated quite well in all the films, but Episode III really drives it home, and I was quite impressed.

Please check back when you've seen it and give us your thoughts.

Maybe Baby

Just turned in my final papers. Finals begin next week. The Belgian Wit gets bottled next Wednesday and I am feeling fine. This is the calm before the storm. Sara is due June 26th with our second child and then things get interesting.

Keep us in your prayers.

Fr. Joseph has a great post up on Conciliar at the moment. Click, read, think. It's more than you'll get from the Munkee today.

Update: Part II and III of Father Joseph's post are up at Conciliar.

Arch Bp. Iakovos

Terry Mattingly has had an article up that I just found through Fr. Joseph. The title speaks for itself After the Iakovos Earthquake .

Highly appropriate in a time when "...we couldn't be further from unity", to quote Bishop Benjamin.

Christian Zombies

I've been dazed and disconnected all week...literally driving down the street zoned out (which can be rather dangerous on a motorcycle)...it is really strange, and feels rather uncomfortable. Especially, when returning to services and suddenly feeling plugged in again, clarity returns and everything feels quite normal. I'm not kidding, not trying to be dramatic here, experiencing the resurrection of our savior this year has affected something very real within me beyond what i have ever known.

Well, that's all for now.

Christ is Risen!

Still rather exhausted from the most intense Pascha for me to date. I shall resume regular posting as I drift back down to earth. For now I wish you all the great joy of this feast of feasts! I wish you all hope in Christ's trampling of death by death! Truly He is Risen!
