Podcast interview with Larry Chapp and Carl Olson of Catholic World Report and Mark Brumley of Ignatius Press. Topic: A Manifesto of the New Traditionalism
This is wonderful conversation I had with Carl Olson of Catholic World Report and Mark Brumley of Ignatius Press. The topic is the recently published Manifesto for the New Traditionalism written by Sean Domenicic with editorial input from myself and Marc Barnes of New Polity. Kudos to Sean for making this happen. I think it is an excellent conversation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
A Manifesto of the New Traditionalism
A Manifesto on the true traditionalism needed in our time. Written from a Catholic Worker perspective, it is co-authored by Sean Domenicic, Larry Chapp and Marc Barnes. It is a Catholic Worker perspective but with an eye toward the broader Church. If you would like to add your name to the Manifesto please contact me.

Dorothy Day on the Precarity of Love and Voluntary Poverty
Blogmasters note: Linked blow is an article I wrote which appeared in the Fall, 2015 edition of Communio: International Catholic Review. I re-release it here today in response to several emails asking me to discuss Dorothy Day a bit more. So rather than write an entirely new blog post on the topic I decided just to reprint this article which I think gets to the heart of some of her most important ideas. There were footnotes in the original but I have eliminated them because they were causing formatting issues in the WordPress format. For the full text with footnotes you can go to the Communio site and access the original article in PDF form. My next post will be on David Bentley Hart’s book on universal salvation so stay tuned!Dr. Larry Chapp
