Standing Fast #23 – Fr. Angelo Geiger on the need for Christianity in Chivalry ( 9min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo is back and vlogging with a vengeance. This episode is on religious chivalry vs secular chivalry. Referring to groups like the Society of Creative Anachronisms which are trying to reintroduce Chivalry with an ethical code not based on religious principles but on secular or even neo-pagan ones, Fr Angelo mentions that this is nothing new. Listen as he points out how western chivalry was uniquely Christian and thus superior to any of the many other forms of Chivalry, especially in regard to the treatment of women which was based on devotion to Mary.

Standing Fast #16 – Fr. Angelo on the Charity of Anathema (7min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo addresses the misconception that the discipline of withholding communion from obstinate and notorious sinners is somehow uncharitable. He takes Fr. John Hardon as his starting point to show that, in the right measure, it is the epitome of charity. To put it in a nutshell, he brings up Dietrich Von Hildebrand’s interesting phrase, “Charitable Anathema.” Fr. Angelo presents Archbishop Burke as a good example for our consideration.

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo Mary Geiger returns to his regular postings of Standing Fast after a small hiatus due to numerous other commitments such as the Fall Encampment and Doug Barry Boot Camp at the friary in CT, the Coredemption Conference in Indiana, and getting involved in the fray over the Plan B controversy in CT.

The inspiration for this entry is a post he made on MaryVictrix. The popular notion of the Knights Templar is imbued with the mystique of hidden secrets and grand conspiracy. And while the Vatican has released a document that pretty much absolve the order of the many accusations made against them, modern conspiracy theorists still hang on to their pet fantasies. The real virtues of the Knights Templar are far more simple, and much more profound.

Men of Honor: Masculinity and the Faith

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

MaryVictrix on Men:

Have you ever noticed the relative proportion of men to women in most Catholic Church congregations, societies, and apostolic movements? Men are not only outnumbered by women, but their relative absence is quite remarkable. There are any number of reasons suggested by social scientists, and Catholic thinkers for this fact. But the one that speaks to the real differences between men and women is that so much of what is available on the Catholic menu is contemplative and charismatic, and so little of it is missionary, evangelical and directly involved in Catholic action.

When will Catholic men, as a body, put prayer first and then translate that prayer into a program of action to reclaim society for Christ?
