Liberty vs. Leviathan

Chronicling Liberty's battle against Leviathan

Fr. Stanley Jaki, Requiscat in Pace

The Western Confucian brings me the sad news of the death of Fr. Stanley Jaki. While he was best known for his works on science it was two of his works on theology that had a major impact on my life.  His books (And On This Rock, The Keys of the Kingdom) on Jesus’ conversation with His disciples, recorded in Matthew 16:13-20, played a significant role in my reconciliation with the Catholic Church.  This weekend I celebrate my 13th Easter as a Catholic in large part due to his explanation of the Church’s understanding of this passage.  Thanks be to God for his life and may he rest in peace.
