Jackass for the Hour: Doing the research

demon panNames of characters in the book such as Froben, Elzevir, et alii are historical figures who are important to the disintegration of Christianity during the “Reformation.” If you want to know at least a part of how to bring about the reintegration of everything in Christ Jesus, you have to know how everything fell apart. Stated differently, ignorance of history condemns one to its repetition. Or better, as Saint Jerome had it, ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ. But that brings us to the topic of establishing the Scriptures as such, brings us to the heart of the Rebellion as the rejection of Scripture, Tradition and the essential interventions of the Magisterium. Jackass for the Hour is about reality, which is always, always, always stranger and more interesting than fake history, fake news, make-believe situations. That which is researchable in Jackass for the Hour can be verified, confirmed, corroborated, etc., at least if you know how to research, and have access either to individuals, archives, or specialized libraries wherever right around the world. There are always things anyone can do, such as doing internet searches and finding out what the historical names are all about, such as Froben, Elzevir, Bellarmine, Luther, Erasmus, Polycarp, Bruno, Sixtus V… Just sayin’

    Yeah, I came upon Esasmus’ “In praise of Folly” way back in High School. Of course, I did not understand what it meant.

    My ignorance of Christ is best highlighted in Scripture when Jesus asks “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am?” Yes, ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.

    Smitten by her beauty, I once said to a girl: “I love you!” She, of course replied: “NO you don’t – you don’t even know me!” How can one love Christ if we don’t know Him?
