  • Thank you, Hobbledehoy, for posting the links. St. Alphonsus de Liguori is always excellent. I downloaded his work on the Divine Office, and it helped me to understand better the issue concerning the numbering of the Psalms.

    The History of Heresies and Their Refutation is another superb work of his. From that, I learned that Martin Luther was disobedient to his superior the first time he was tested to obey.

    I made a thread in the General Discussion subforum here because I did not want to risk breaking the rules of The Library subforum.

  • You're quite welcome Kephapaulos! And thank you so much Gladius, Herbert, and PartyIsOver221 for your very kind remarks.

    However, all thanks should be given unto God, for if there be anything good in what I am or what I do, it is only because of holy grace, as St. Paul teaches: "For it is God that worketh in you both to will and to accomplish, according to his good will" (Phil., ch. ii., 13). Moreover, the blessed Apostles reminds souls to humbly acknowledge that it is due to God alone that they possess any good: "What hast thou that thou hast not received? And if thou hast received, what dost thou glory as though thou hast not received" (I Cor., ch. iv., 7). Wherefore does St. Paul exhort us, saying: "But he glorieth, let him glory in our Lord. For not he that commendeth himself, the same is approved: but whom God commendeth" (II Cor., ch. x., 17-18). All this did Our Lord Himself teach, saying "For without me you can do nothing" (S. John, ch. xv., 5).

    For I must candidly confess that I have found an unnervingly accurate description of myself in what Rev. Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange says in his book, The Love of God and the Cross of Jesus (vol. 2, ch. i.), of certain scholars who

    Quote
    […] devote themselves to study more out of curiosity than from love of truth and, as they fail to appreciate the value of truth, they take insufficient precautions against error. They are likely to overevaluate themselves, to become irritated when others seem not to recognize their worth. Jealousy and envy lead them to disparage fellow workers more talented and disinterested than themselves and so to block the good influence these might have exerted on others, who may fail, therefore, to advance or even to persevere because of this lack. People who do things like this may work great harm to the general good without being conscious of it. Even in scholarly religious circles a thousand petty passions and intrigues may influence minds and result in books and reviews becoming tainted with untruth, even when, and perhaps especially when, all concerned profess to be quite objective. Irritating controversies arise only too often because those concerned have but relative good faith.


    Please pray that I efficacious eradicate these proclivities, to which God might justly abandon me if I give myself over to pride or sloth.

    Oh yeah, and let's also be conscious of the fact that CathInfo's instrumentality makes fruitful and edifying exchanges possible. So I have Matthew and Mater to thank too.

    Thanks, I was going to change it to the "not so smart sheep". Many intelligent postings here. Some things way over my head. And I have such a hard time with computers.
    But I am learning so maybe I should change it to "get smart sheep".

  • I remember when Hobbledehoy bowed out gracefully. He admitted to spending too much time here and was going to spend more time in prayer and mediation, if I remember correctly. I was sad to see him go. I wonder it he sneaks a peak from time to time.

    His posts were truly uplifting and he never said a bad word about any person.

    For newbies here, I'd recommend going (back) over some of his posts.

    His first which speaks volumes about the man:

    Quote
    Please accept my condolences for the tragic loss of your mother. I cannot presume to have the words or wisdom wherewith to console you in this very sorrowful and vexing calamity, but be assured of my prayers for the eternal repose of your mother. Be also assured of my prayers for you and your family, that you may be endowed with the graces necessary to abandon yourselves with filial trust to the Providence of our Blessed Lord, Who disposes all things according to the designs of His ineffable clemency and charity
    .
    His second (introduce yourself):

    Quote

  • After he left here a guy named Teilo and a Half appeared on SuscipeDomine. He claimed to have agreed with Hobbledehoy to post his scans over there. Well this guy (if it wasn't Hobbledehoy himself) had a tantrum for some reason and left.

    I remember Hobbledehoy accusing me (as Hatchc) of posting a racist sentiment.

    However, there was nothing wrong about my observation. He wanted to read things into it. Scanning this thread again I notice the unhinged InfiniteFaith. There's a guy who posts here now who reminds me a bit of him.

  • Hobbles, so far as I can tell at the end, faced something of a crisis of authority and he returned to the Novus Ordo. C'est la vie.  This was on TD, if I recall correctly, though that's obviously no help to anyone since the place went offline.

    He was a great poster, dearly missed.

    Yes, it's quite humbling to consider how fragile we all are. I mean, meditate for a minute or more on how fully and integrally Trad Hobbledehoy was. He didn't just fit in on CathInfo, he was an ideal member! He had huge collections of old pre-Vatican II works which he scanned and uploaded to CathInfo. Actually, he uploaded to an image hosting service, and posted all those links on CathInfo (so now all the links he posted don't work! UGH!)

    But you'd think that by filling his mind with such good influences, the Church the way it was before Vatican II, all its wisdom, common sense, such a rich fullness of the Catholic Faith in every page, every scan of his pre-Vatican II books -- that he'd know an impostor (Conciliar Church, Novus Ordo) when he saw it! I know I do! I could never be happy or content in the Novus Ordo. I've tasted real meat. Some cardboard painted to look like meat just wouldn't satisfy me!

    Hobbles was practically a gourmet, to extend this analogy. And how he's happily munching on cardboard every Sunday, and maybe even during the week.

    It's a mystery why some persevere, and others fall away for this or that reason. It reminds me of the Parable of the Sower.
