Crux speaks with Francis Beckwith about his new book on Thomas Aquinas.
Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron of Los Angeles believes St. Thomas Aquinas is more relevant than ever in an era of “nones.”
In the preface to a new book, Pope Francis insists that his family treatise “Amoris Laetitia” does not represent a “rupture” with previous teaching and that it’s based on the “classical doctrine” of St. Thomas Aquinas.
Cardinal Walter Kasper spoke Tuesday in Rome at a presentation of a new book on ‘Amoris Laetitia,’ and while he argued that the debate is no big deal, it sometimes didn’t seem that his heart was in it.
Early in his career, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna, Austria, was seen as a conservative protégé of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, while today he’s mostly viewed as a progressive ally of Pope Francis. Rather than any fundamental shift in himself or the Church, Schönborn says, what that illustrates is the inadequacy of the categories of ‘left v. right’ to begin with.
