The World Loves Its Own
A new blog from PJ Mulvey, an occasional, and very welcome, commentor here, and well worth adding to the blogroll.
PJ seems to be a man after my own heart, writing,
"When a future Gibbon analyzes 21st century western civilization, what will he think of a people whose main occupation was spending and more spending and where shopping malls replaced churches on Sunday as places of worship with posters of half naked models taking the place of the icons of Blessed Virgin Mary and Our Lord?"
That raises the startling question of whether a new Gibbon will ever come forth - Monsieur Pomme de Terre might just have been a once in a civilisation event; and if you don't heed his warnings, you might not get second chances.
On a slightly lighter note, PJ was educated by the Capuchin Fransiscans, and I was with the Jesuits - does this mean we get to gang up on those dangerously liberal Benedictines?
