Open Session--Recap

About L&L | When is the Next Meeting?

We are well into the teens and I am losing count of sessions. This last one, let's call it Sweet Sixteen, was attended by the square root of Sixteen. We threw caution to the wind and talked about what comes naturally to mind: the Pope's latest encyclical (ambivalent), distributism (ditto), Anglican doings (ambivalent in essence), Our Lady of Walsingham, Orthodox ecclesiology, the philosophical preconditions of reading the Bible, and whether or not St. Thomas was thinking of unformed faith in his article on hope when he said that even someone not in a state of grace, provided that they have faith in God's omipotence and mercy, can be certain of the good of eternal life.

Forever and ever amen.

About L&L | When is the Next Meeting?

For the first time since our first meeting, Liturgy & Lager will feature an "open session" format. If you have something in particular on your mind, and so long it has nothing to do with your feelings, relationships or other such unmentionables, please show up and hold forth. This might be a great session for our Protestant brethren to ask a bunch of Papists how in the world we can believe the things we believe. Please try to be specific in your critique of our credulity. We might return the favor. Failing such ecumenical overtures, the Catholics should have plenty to discuss, and maybe even some stuff to debate. Come help us hoist a few, and spread the word.

(Click the link above for date, time and location. Well, heck, here you go: Friday, July 10, 2009, 7:15 pm, at Texas Land & Cattle restaurant, Charlotte, NC, in the University Area, just off Harris Blvd. across from University Place. We have a room reserved.)
