My photo
A lover of the liberal arts, especially antiquity in its diverse forms, I am nonetheless wholly devoted to, utterly transformed by divine revelation. I seek to know the thought of the past, articulate my deepest longings aroused by the wise, and understand the uneasy relationship between reason and revelation; all for the sake of proper action and contemplation, both now and in the future.


Contra Caritas

The inclusive love for a man for all mankind - selfless, I imagine would be the word - is not truly love as love in an exclusionary act - a claim, if you will. Subject and object are lost, and the act itself negates both, for the particular is lost in favor of the universal.
