Christmas Schall

Advent with Fr. Schall. And Ken Masugi.
Christian revelation was not given in order to tell us how to organize or run the polity. It did not do this because it assumed or understood that man could figure this arrangement out for himself. Revelation was not designed to take the place of reason. Indeed, it demanded that reason go to the trouble of knowing and learning what it could. Revelation is pretty much closed to dullards, or better, to those with the famous vice of aecidia, of that intellectual laziness that refuses to address itself to the highest things through fear of what might happen if it knew what in fact was expect of man.
