What did you just order?
My copy of Rev. Victor Warkulwiz's tome The Doctrines of Genesis 1-11: A Compendium and Defense of Traditional Catholic Theology on Origins arrived! I'm looking forward to starting it once I'm finished with EM Jones's Logos Rising.

For a Catholic take on Genesis it's a phenomenal book.  I used to have a copy of it.  It's not as patristic as Seraphim Rose's magnum opus but it's still pretty good.

This was yesterday, but, a wayside shrine, likely to go in the Mary garden, or near it.

yes, thank goodness! It’s fantastic! Sews like greased lightening. I’ve already cut down a duvet cover and am planning to finish a quilt.

Now you've got me even more excited to read it! I'm glad to hear you thought it was so good

He really tries to look at Genesis through the lens of RC dogma and  pre Vatican II RC (Scholastic) metaphysics. I'm not sure if he's affiliated with the Kolbe Center or not but that's where I first heard about the book from.  

I certainly thought it was a decent book.  So many RC books since Humani generis have taken a pro evolution tack but that one doesn't.  It was interesting in that regard, and I have to give props to Father Warkulwiz for taking a very very unpopular tack in Catholic circles.  

You'll have to let me know how you like it.  Only reason I eventually got rid of it was because I was doing some spring cleaning and got rid of pretty much all my RC books aside from some Cistercian Press Homilies of St. Bernard (who I love)  and my breviary. Had I known you wanted a copy I'd have sent it to you.

That's alright, I had $70 in rewards points on my cc to burn anyway. I'm not surprised you kept St. Bernard, what little I've read of him has been astounding.

His homily on the name of Christ is one of those sermons that you want to read over and over.  It is absolutely beautiful.  His name is oil poured out.  It's on the verse from Canticle of Canticles (Song of Songs) but he turns it into a meditation on the Name. 

Bernard of Claiurvaux had a real way with words.  You should get some of those Homily collections from Cistercian Pubs if you enjoy that style of writing. What the classical Cistercians lacked in iconography they made up for with words.  Cistercian pubs used to have his sermons grouped for the Liturgical year, so you could follow his train of thought on different feasts and seasons.  Bernards favorite was Ascension, but I go way off on a tangent.....
