Archaeologism, Mithraism, Labor and More on USC!

Good day and Blessed Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady! Please enjoy these recent articles from the Unam Sanctam Catholicam website! Please help this website by reading and sharing these articles with your friends.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank many, of you who have supported this site and linked up my articles, specifically: Noah at Alleluia Audio Books, Tantamergo at Veneremur Cernui (Blog for Dallas Area Catholics), Throwback at Popin' Ain't Easy (who writes most of the film reviews for USC), the Facebook group Catholic Faith In the Light of Tradition, who always faithfully share all of my articles, and last but not least, Rorate Caeli, who, though they don't link my articles directly, have sent me more traffic through linking me on the sidebar than any other site. God bless you all.

Novena to St. Bernard: Great way to prepare for this great saint's feast on August 20th.
What is archaeologism? Why Pius XII thought the modern fad of "returning to the sources" was such a dangerous train of thought.

On the Subjective and Objective Ends of Work: What is it about the West's approach to labor and value that leads to such excessive materialism? John Paul II explains it as an inversion of values relating to the philosophical understanding of human work.

Should we adopt the orans posture during the Our Father?: Another quod libet that pops up in the Novus Ordo; why this gesture is a liturgical aberration.

Christianity and Mithraism: Examining the common accusation that Christianity borrowed from Mithraism; in fact, it was most likely the other way around.

Explaining Indulgences (video): A 13 minute video explaining the history and doctrine of indulgences. Great for explaining the teaching to Protestants or ignorant Catholics.
