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.
