Elizabeth Scalia on the Mass of the very old men :
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 6:25 AM: In the palest light, I follow footprints left in the seasons first frost, just a few minutes behind the regulars. The churchs glaring overhead lights are softened by the flame-glow of a few dozen candlesreal wax, seven-day candles that burn a constant supplicationand by the shimmer of one gloriously large and eye-catching Icon of the Crucifixion scene.
Also today, James R. Rogers on Paul and the swiss-cheese theory of natural law :
Natural lawyers commonly cite a passage from the second chapter of Pauls letter to the Romans to show the existence of natural law to Christians. While I accept some version of natural law, natural lawyers often seem to want to derive much more from the text than it supports.
