Are You a Lover of Wisdom? - The World Needs More Philosophers - Matthew KellyGet Matthew's 60 Second Wisdom delivered to your inbox: https://www.matthewkelly.com/subscribeVideo Transcript:“My son Walter asked me once, “What is a philosopher?” “A philosopher is a lover of wisdom,” I explained to him. Over the years this phrase has become a favorite saying in the family. One of the children might ask, “Why are we talking about this… or reading this… or doing this?” And I will reply, because your mother and I are raising you to be… and they will reply, “Lovers of wisdom.” So, let me ask you, are you a lover of wisdom? It would seem to me that whatever good hopes and dreams we have for our country and the world, we are all going to need more wisdom to bring those hopes and dreams about. The place we give wisdom in our lives and in our culture is highly predictive of the future. The sad reality is that wisdom often doesn't have much of a place in our lives or society. Opinions, agendas, and preferences all seem to be more loved and celebrated than wisdom at this time. Are you a lover of wisdom or are you in love with your opinions, agendas, and preferences? What area of your life is most in need of wisdom? In what way are you being nudged, called, encouraged to adopt the path of the wise at this time in your life? The world needs more lovers of wisdom, and so, we have a decision to make. Are we going to be lovers of our opinions, agendas, and personal preferences? Or are we going to become lovers of wisdom? The future of everything depends on how we answer this question.”If you have not read LIFE IS MESSY, order your copy today: https://amzn.to/2TTgZKn Subscribe to Matthew's YouTube Channel today! https://www.youtube.com/c/MatthewKellyAuthor/featured?sub_confirmation=1https://www.matthewkelly.comGet Matthew's 60 Second Wisdom delivered to your inbox: https://www.matthewkelly.com/subscribe The Best Version of Yourself and 60 Second Wisdom are registered trademarks.#MatthewKelly #BestVersionOfYourself #BestVersion #ThoughtLeader

Originally trained as a lawyer, Dr. Heereman experienced a deep conversion experience at the 1997 World Youth Day. This conversion led her to discern a vocation as a lay woman “celibate for the sake of the kingdom of heaven” and also led her to theological studies so as to “consecrate [her] life to the study and teaching of the Word of God”. She received an STB from the Pontifical Gregorian University, an SSL from the Pontifical Biblical Institute, and the very rare SSD from the École biblique et archéologique française de Jérusalem and the Université de Fribourg. Her doctoral thesis “Behold King Solomon on the Day of His Wedding”: A Symbolic-Diachronic Reading of Song 3:6-11 and 4:12-5:1 has been heralded by scholars as a profound contribution to scholarship on the Song of Songs. Dr. Heereman is presently an Assistant Professor of Sacred Scripture at St. Patrick's Seminary and University in Menlo Park, CA.

One of the hallmarks of modern science is the ability to explain the workings of nature by detailed study of its pieces and parts. Organisms are understood as combinations of organ systems, which are made up of tissues, which are made up of cells, which are made of up complex chemicals, then atoms, and more fundamental particles. As successful as this methodological reductionism has been, it is still an open question how complete it can be. Can everything about complex biological systems be reduced to chemistry, and every detail of chemistry explained from fundamental physics? Do the organization and complexity of higher-level systems require additional tools to complete our understanding of the natural world? Do the answers to these scientific questions work for or against an Aristotelian and Thomistic understanding of nature and natural kinds, and how might those classical ideas be of use in contemporary science? The Thomistic Philosophy and Natural Science Symposium gathers expert scientists and philosophers to discuss the potential compatibility and mutual enrichment of the study of Aquinas' philosophy of nature and various forms of modern scientific knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. The 2022 symposium includes a day of lectures geared towards an introduction to Thomistic philosophy and the history of science, with a focus on complexity, simplicity and emergence. The rest of the symposium will have scientific experts discussing the understanding of complexity and simplicity in their own fields with one another and with philosophers. About the speaker: Professor Jessica Brown is an Associate Professor of biochemistry at Notre Dame. She received her Ph.D. from The Ohio State University and was a postdoc fellow at Yale University. Her research focuses on structural, biochemical & cellular roles of RNA triple helices.

We don't see or taste God like we do food. He is not an emotion. He is not something normal in our experience. Yet we can know him. How? The answer involves God being nowhere in particular but everywhere present.

A cosmological argument is any argument that uses the existence of the world to infer the existence of God. In this episode, we examine two of the three best-known and debated cosmological arguments: Aquinas' argument from change, and Liebnitz' argument from contingency. Aquinas sees God as the force that pushes the universe forward, allowing concrete objects to change from potential to actual. Liebnitz asks the question, “Why is there something instead of nothing?” and concludes that God must be fundamental and necessary, since the universe cannot be.LinksVisit our website: https://www.wellreadchristian.comCheck our our blog: https://www.wellreadchristian.com/blogFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/wellreadchristianInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/wellreadchristianYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfGxz4OH1-hVD0fL9AWR4Xg

Gradually making my way through ‘Summa Theologica: Volume I' on audiobook, yesterday's reading featured Aquinas talking about eternity and time. Consequently, here's a mind-blowing idea for you: God is His own eternity. But what does that mean? I confess to not fully knowing. Even so, these are not useless or trivial ideas to contemplate. Aquinas stands as the last great medieval scholar of theology. So whereas theology was regarded up until the Enlightenment and our Modern era as “the queen of the sciences,” this really is saying something. Whether you agree with him or not, or even know what to make of him, this is not fluff and stuff. But reading him really is good mental and spiritual exercise. Even so, there are practical troubles to be found in reading books like Summa Theologica. The frank truth is that many folks find this pointless at best. And some feel downright threatened by it, and react with hostility accordingly. Besides that, another byproduct of reading these sorts of books is that you start to talk funny. And this is because you think funny. When most people don't cultivate their minds or inform their opinions this way, doing so makes you stick out. So what if nobody cares? And what if nobody wants to hear it? To not be just another recluse who keeps to himself, sitting around the house waiting for the next chance to talk with other people who are well-read, you might find yourself on the horns of a dilemma. Give up on reading to fit in, or keep prodding everyone around you to join you? Someone I've been listening to recently who navigates this well is Dr. Jordan B. Cooper. About my age, Cooper is a Lutheran minister who has his own podcast and YouTube channel - Just and Sinner - where he talks about theology and church history. In a video examining the methodology at the heart of Michael Heiser's 'Supernatural' and 'The Unseen Realm,' Cooper does a fine job carefully unpacking the presuppositions, assumptions, priorities, and tradition which explain why men like them disagree over what to make of Biblical passages about angels, demons, and gods. Be it known I agree with some of Cooper's biggest concerns - about not only Heiser's methodology, but also John Walton's found in books like ‘The Lost World of Genesis One.' At the same time, I confess to agreeing with many of Heiser's conclusions about the competing religions of the world not just being demonic in the abstract. The gods of those religions are, or were, actual and personal demons. And I would appeal to Augustine on this point; my reading of City of God puts he and I on the same side of this question. To make something of my closing point here, though, consider the story from just yesterday by Joel Abbot at Not the Bee, of FBI special agent Timothy Thibault, who resigned last week and was escorted from the building Monday. He it is who reportedly pressed the bureau to investigate President Trump, to not investigate Hunter Biden, to inflate domestic extremism stats towards putting angry American parents on terrorist watch lists, and to fire agents who refused the COVID vaccine. Repeating myself, I will say that the trouble with conspiracy theories is that sometimes they turn out to be true. And reading great books helps us know when they are or may well be. Thus to read great books is not just a safeguard in the abstract, but at every level practically. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support

Behe notes that people have different aesthetic predilections, but it's the scientist's job not to figure out how he would have preferred things to have happened in nature, but to discover how they actually did come about.

In a recent video on the Pints with Aquinas channel, Gregory Pine, O.P. voiced his concern that mass entertainment, particularly music and movies, is often an obstacle to achieving the heavenly end of contemplation for which we are made. What is noteworthy is that unlike the typical Catholic commentary on pop culture, Fr. Pine does not focus so much on the moral content of music and movies as how their very form affects us bodily, psychologically and spiritually. In this discussion inspired by Fr. Pine's points, host Thomas Mirus and filmmaker Nathan Douglas specify some elements of music and film which are obstacles to the contemplative life, but also suggest how, rather than simply eschewing music and movies, we can engage with better art in a deeper way which serves the contemplative end of man.

Friends of the Rosary: Today is the Memorial Day of St. Dominic, founder of the Order of Preachers and the Dominican Order, which was approved in 1216. Alongside the Franciscans, the Dominican Order became the most powerful Order in medieval times, giving the Church illustrious preachers — St. Vincent Ferrer, and contemplatives, Sts. Thomas of Aquinas and Pius V. Born about 1175 in Caleruega, Castile (Spain), Dominic of Guzman received the Rosary from the Blessed Virgin Mary. He spread it during the thirteen century. Through the example of apostolic poverty and the preaching of the word of God — Rosary in hand; at that time, called the Psalter of Mary — St. Dominic led many souls to Christ. Ave Maria!

Full Text of ReadingsMemorial of Saint Dominic, Priest Lectionary: 413All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint DominicIf he hadn't taken a trip with his bishop, Dominic would probably have remained within the structure of contemplative life; after the trip, he spent the rest of his life being a contemplative in active apostolic work. Born in old Castile, Spain, Dominic was trained for the priesthood by a priest-uncle, studied the arts and theology, and became a canon of the cathedral at Osma, where there was an attempt to revive the apostolic common life described in Acts of the Apostles. On a journey through France with his bishop, Dominic came face to face with the then virulent Albigensian heresy at Languedoc. The Albigensians--or Cathari, “the pure ones”--held to two principles—one good, one evil—in the world. All matter is evil—hence they denied the Incarnation and the sacraments. On the same principle, they abstained from procreation and took a minimum of food and drink. The inner circle led what some people regarded as a heroic life of purity and asceticism not shared by ordinary followers. Dominic sensed the need for the Church to combat this heresy, and was commissioned to be part of the preaching crusade against it. He saw immediately why the preaching crusade was not succeeding: the ordinary people admired and followed the ascetical heroes of the Albigenses. Understandably, they were not impressed by the Catholic preachers who traveled with horse and retinues, stayed at the best inns and had servants. Dominic therefore, with three Cistercians, began itinerant preaching according to the gospel ideal. He continued this work for 10 years, being successful with the ordinary people but not with the leaders. His fellow preachers gradually became a community, and in 1215 Dominic founded a religious house at Toulouse, the beginning of the Order of Preachers or Dominicans. Dominic's ideal, and that of his Order, was to organically link a life with God, study, and prayer in all forms, with a ministry of salvation to people by the word of God. His ideal: contemplata tradere: “to pass on the fruits of contemplation” or “to speak only of God or with God.” Reflection The Dominican ideal, like that of all religious communities, is for the imitation, not merely the admiration, of the rest of the Church. The effective combining of contemplation and activity is the vocation of truck driver Smith as well as theologian Aquinas. Acquired contemplation is the tranquil abiding in the presence of God, and is an integral part of any full human life. It must be the wellspring of all Christian activity.

Simply Convivial: Organization & Mindset for Home & Homeschool

We tend to think of happiness as a mere feeling, something nice but unnecessary, something transient and superficial. However, happiness has always been a topic of deep interest to philosophers, and there is a long Christian tradition of both what happiness truly is and also how important it is.Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, Pascal, Lewis – all agree that what people are searching for is happiness. And that is not a sinful search, but a proper one. We were created to live in perfect harmony and happiness with God and man, and we long for what we have lost in the Fall. Thus, only God satisfies the search for happiness, a search we should all make because it does lead us to God
