A Step Down for Women and 3rd Discourse

The name of Dale Ahlquist is one well known throughout both the Catholic and Novus Ordo realms, but for those who are not familiar with it, Mr. Ahlquist is, among other things, the president of the American Chesterton Society and probably the single most highly respected authority on everything Chesterton today. The Distributist Review provides his article on the revolting subject of feminism, The Triumphs and Failures of Feminism, in which he presents some of Chesterton’s thoughts on the issue, characteristically appearing to be more relevant now than when written. “The demand for equality has a noble ring to it. It sounds like a cry for justice. But seeking equality with men was, as G.K. Chesterton pointed out, a step down for women.”

God is Merciful for a Season, and then Chastises is number three of the Nine Discourses for Times of Calamities by Saint Alphonsus Liguori from Catholic Harbor of Faith and Morals. “...When there is question of punishment, He waits, He admonishes, He sends us warning of it beforehand: For the Lord God doth nothing without revealing His secret to His servants, the prophets (Amos. iii. 7).”
