From the same book, same chapter and article, section 4 on the clothing of women, note 8. Note that when the Doctors say a custom is so evil as for it to be a sin to introduce it, there is an underlying societal obligation for it to be eventually overturned. "To bare the breasts or to cover them with a garment so thin that they show through is a mortal sin because the incentive of lust is grave, says Sylvius, t. 3, p. 872. But to bare the breast to a small extent, according to the custom that has already been introduced -

J-B Bouvier, bishop of Mans - Dissertation on the 6th commandment; Ch. 5: Sins of unconsummated lust, article 2, section 3 on impudicitous looks: It is a mortal sin, because of the danger attached to such a sight, to gaze fixedly upon the naked breasts of a beautiful woman. It is not true that those who, in seclusion from special danger, see mothers or nurses nursing infants, do not commit such a sin;

got a question. moral doctors refer commonly to matters of custom and often distinguish between good and bad custom of different degrees, allowing for persons to act in ignorance according to moderately bad customs in venial or no sin at all where usually it would be mortal; the problem is that when they establish some kind of societal obligation to improve bad customs (often with with dance, dress especially the showing of cleavage, and custom-imposed necessities of embraces or kisses) they will barely ever explain how that actually works out.

J-B Bouvier, bishop of Mans - Dissertation on the 6th commandment; Ch. 3: DIFFERENT SPECIES OF UNNATURAL CONSUMMATED LUST; A1: MASTURBATION, Remedies for Masturbation
Positively recognized masturbation must be opposed by suitable remedies: some are physical and others moral. Physical remedies may serve for the cure of voluntary or involuntary ejaculation: they consist in great sobriety, a well-regulated way of life, abstinence from hot foods, spirituous liquors, the use of water and milk [...] a not very soft bed, cold baths.

§ 1. Of the causes of lust
The main and most frequent causes of the sins of lust are: 1°) Intemperance in eating and especially in drinking

“The whole Church must work vigorously in order that men may become capable of rectifying the distortion of the temporal order and directing it to God through Christ. Pastors must clearly state the principles concerning the purpose of creation and the use of temporal things and must offer the moral and spiritual aids by which the temporal order may be renewed in Christ. The laity must take up the renewal of the temporal order as their own special obligation.”

Does the Word become composite by the incarnation? Aquinas' answer in super sententiam iii d6 q2 a3:
Damascene says that the two natures have been united to each other in the one composite hypostasis of the Son of God. On Leviticus 5:11, which speaks of the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering, the Gloss says, this is Christ’s humanity, for taking the three measures of an ephah signifies the Trinity. Therefore Christ’s humanity is a part of a certain person in the Trinity.

"For Sabellius, who himself had fallen from the correct faith, did not accurately know either God or his holy Word. For whoever does not know the Word also does not know the Father. For he says, “No one knows the Father except the Son” (Mt 11:27), that is, the Word, since the Word brings about knowledge of the Father through himself. Such is the case also for those Jews at that time who thought they knew God but rejected his Word through whom alone God is known.

In carnal marriage, any standing grave wrongdoing towards one's spouse falsifies the deepening of nuptial union in acts of marital love, until reconciliation is achieved; this is despite the persistence of the material union achieved in marriage. But reconciliation is most assuredly achieved once wrongdoings are spoken between spouses and the offending party forgiven, and their willingness to make restitution expressed; this even if the spouses are both aware of the offense while it has remained unspoken.

From @neorreacionario;
This thread will be divided in two parts: the first one, aimed to prove that Petrine primacy, as taught by scripture, has always being a doctrine accepted by the Church; the second one, aimed to prove that this primacy is united with the Roman Church and its Bishop, according to uninterrupted Christian tradition.

"Cano gives three precepts for how this is to be done. The first precept—the head of all the others—is that the theologian will consider and treat all of the loci of theology. The theologian is to be familiar with Scripture and tradition, the pronouncement of councils and popes, the teachings of the Fathers, and the like. He is also supposed to have a reasonable familiarity with the human sciences, so that he can illustrate his ideas.
The second rule is that the theologian is to examine the work of older theologians, and consider which of the loci this

From the same paper - this is just awesome. Really neat.
"Cano finds a threefold order of principles held by faith. On the first level, there are the two principles given by St. Paul in Hebrews 11:6: God exists and is a rewarder of them that seek Him. All the articles of the faith are implicitly contained in these two. At the second level, there are particular, immediate principles, more narrow in scope, which are proposed to the faithful for belief primo et per se. These are the chief articles of faith, which either concern God as He is in Himself,

Why the clergy are not very good at teaching the concrete positions of the tradition on dress:
"We repeat, venerable and beloved brothers: we must be careful. This desire to insert the priest into the social complex in which his life and ministry unfolds is good, but as a generous intention to come out of the shell of a crystallized and privileged condition, can translate into a very serious erroneous suggestion, the which can paralyze the priestly vocation in what is most intimate, most charismatic, most fruitful; and it can

As an example: Christ is the Word incarnate, and the Law is the Word 'inlibrate', both are conceived by the Holy Spirit in a human author (prophets, Mary) undergoing a transient participation in the incarnation (the intellect and will are both divinised). The unconverted are in comparison dead stones no matter how beautified, whitewashed tombs (Mt 23:27). But God's justification of the ungodly is his making of them from stones to living tablets with the law written on their hearts, after the pattern of Christ who descended the

From the Church of the East union Synod under Patriarch Eliya VII. The following is read from Mar Cyril Behnam Benni's compilation work 'The Tradition of the Syrian church of antioch Concerning the Primacy and Prerogatives of Peter and his Successors the Roman Pontiffs'.

Wondering if any could help with a Latin question regarding GIRM #274 that my friend @carlschneed and I are having. Trying to get as many additional opinions as I can.
Here is the text we are concerned about: In Missa tres genuflexiones fiunt a sacerdote celebrante, hoc est: post ostensionem hostiæ, post ostensionem calicis et ante Communionem. Peculiaritates in Missa concelebrata servandæ suis locis notantur (cf. nn. 210-251).
