Four articles are loaded up today into the Archived Articles section of the blog. These are articles that have been written for other websites, magazines, journals and papers over the years.

They are available for Donor Subscribers. Donor Subscribers support the blog at one of two levels: Premium and Podcast.

Here are the four articles for this week:

Glorious Bastard: The Witness of Alec Guiness – the story of his ignominious birth and eventual stardom and conversion to the Catholic faith

The Sign of Bread and Wine – this continues the series on liturgy I wrote for Catholic Digest a few years ago. It considers the symbolism of Bread and Wine and its meaning in the Mass.

Married Priests: The English Experience – This was written before I was actually ordained as a priest myself and reports on the innovation in England after the Church of England’s decision to ordain women as priests.

C.S.Lewis and the Effects of Scientism – This article connects scientism–the ideology that scientific knowledge is the only kind of valid knowledge–and Lewis’ Sci-fi classic, That Hideous Strength.
