You were talking about no culture conversion, I suggest you read G. K. Chesterton's "The five deaths of the Faith". The gates of Hell shall not prevail!

Blessings In Jesus

Novak left out reference to the West's agonies over usury in his article. He left out also the most popular economic controversy of the middle ages--the just price. Maybe Novak was just plain embarrassed by the papal church's devotion to economic blind alleys.

I met Father Jaki, once. I was staying with a buddy who works for a pro- life legal foundation based near the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky..

Father was also visiting, staying with my buddy's boss, whose house was across the field. We saw them come out onto the back lawn together..

My buddy triple dog dared me to run over and ask Father his views over some theological point we were debating.. It's been ten years, and I can't remember what it was, but it was serious but silly.. Like most of my endeavors.

I of course didn't hesitate.

So I've shook his hand and received his blessing, as well as a sage response to my cheeky silliness..

Very kind and intelligent man, Father Stan.

May his repose be blessed, his memory eternal.
