2010 - Surviving the New Kulturkampf - Album- Monterey Conference

SKU: 4447D-00-AL


The 2010 Monterey Conference features talks by Edwin Faust, Dr. Ronald McArthur, and Father Nicholas Millich addressing important resources for preserving and spreading the authentic Catholic Faith.

Catholic Journalism: A Samizdat for the Faithful
Edwin Faust describes, in his inimitable style, why traditional Catholic journalism, such as appears in publications like The Latin Mass and traditionally oriented blogs, can be considered a "samizdat" for the faithful Catholic. How is it keeping alive the truths of the Faith, and why are more mainstream Catholic publications not able to do this?

The Restoration of Catholic Learning
Dr. Ronald McArthur, a founder and President Emeritus of Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, California, gives an urgently needed prescription for the Reatoration of true Catholic Learning. He discusses the modern danger of looking for the "historical Jesus", and how it is part of the long and bitter battle with the forces of the Enlightenment forces that, despite their differences, united to "illuminate the mind through science" so that they might purge our civilization of the "myth" of Christianity, which had "crippled" it for more than 1000 years. To counteract this malady, we must turn to the Doctors and Fathers of the Church as true guides in the intellectual life of the Church and, above all, to Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Common Doctor of the Church. We must also be educated in the liberal arts and be able, as Saint Paul counsels us, to give an account of the Faith within us. He consoles us with the observation that the Englightenment has by most accounts failed, and that it is only dangerous in combination with the intellectual disintegration within the Church, along with the effects of the usual weakness, cowardice, ignorance and worldliness that have distorted the Catholic relationship to reality.

Images of the Great Tradition
Father Nicholas Millich gives an inspiring and facinating talk on three solid, essential images out of the Great Tradition - The Mirror, The Bystander, and The Penitent. He speaks of Saint Clare of Assisi's spiritual life and Christ as The Mirror, and the Mass as The Mirror. Then he contemplates The Bystander, which we all are at some time, as are the Bystanders in the Gospels, who are, by the grace of God, planted and drawn into the Sacred. Finally, he meditates on the Penitent - and the duty to make reparation, not only for our own sins, but for the sins of the World.
