“A Manifesto of the New Traditionalism”, published on the Gaudium et Spes 22 blog on December 22nd, was co-authored by Sean Domenicic, Larry Chapp and Marc Barnes.
Written “Catholic Worker perspective but with an eye toward the broader Church,” it addresses four major topics: the nature of the Church, the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas as “a foundation for the valuable ‘New Theologies’”, how the “natural law and the preferential option for the poor have been united in Catholic Social Teaching”, and how the “necessary Liturgical Renewal was begun, betrayed, and left unaccomplished”.
Dr. Chapp recently spoke with Carl E. Olson, editor of Catholic World Report, and Mark Brumley, president of Ignatius Press, about the Manifesto.
