Daniel Galadza has described how the Hagiopolite Rite, proper to the Holy City of Jerusalem, with its beautiful stational liturgies, was slowly abandoned as Jerusalem adopted the Byzantine Rite: global.oup.com/academic/produ…
One of the most beautiful and venerable Rites of the Church now exists only in fragments of ancient liturgical manuscripts and travelogues of ancient pilgrims.
Can you imagine if a Byzantine patriarch were elected pope, and he decided to abrogate the Roman Rite entirely, and impose the Byzantine Rite on the Western Church?

Addison shows how the deep and beautiful wisdom of tradition on true happiness and true freedom that Ahmari looks to in his book is connected to the debate against right-wing liberalism that Ahmari has also been engaged in:
The debate between those who see the end of politics as the establishment of a liberal framework in which many opposed accounts of the human good can coexist…

People often say "love is willing the good of the other." This is not exactly wrong, but it is not the most basic account of love.
Love certainly involves willing/desiring something good for someone, so we often distinguish between desire-love (love of wine, for example), and friendship-love (love of the person for whom I desire the wine). But there is a more basic reality of love underlying these two.
The basic reality of love is the conformity of the heart to some good.

"Truly, it is hardly possible to describe how great are the evils that flow from divorce. Matrimonial contracts are by it made variable; mutual kindness is weakened; deplorable inducements to unfaithfulness are supplied; harm is done to the education and training of children; …

My thanks to Yoram Hazony for this clear articulation of a Burkean objection to my account of the common good. It gives me an opportunity of clarifying my position.

"If any man be devout and love God, let him enjoy this fair and radiant triumphal feast. If any man be a wise servant, let him rejoicing enter into the joy of his Lord.
"If any have labored long in fasting, let him now receive his recompense. If any have wrought from the first hour, let him today receive his just reward.
"If any have come at the third hour, let him with thankfulness keep the feast. If any have arrived at the sixth hour, let him have no misgivings; because he shall in nowise be deprived thereof.

The whole art of being a parish priest can be summed up in two loves, one fearlessness, and one fear.
The first love: Love of God.
My late confrère Pater Norbert used to spend an hour kneeling in prayer in the parish Church in Sulz before Sunday Mass, and many of his parishioners have told me how moved they were by his evident friendship with God.
