Did You Give These to Dad on Father's Day?

Mantyhose - the latest in male fashion

If you are a student of history, I urge you to examine the fashions of dying cultures. You'll note that the men became more and more feminine in their apparel and personal appearance. Other things that degenerate: the arts. Think of Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol, the popularity of the pornographic novel Fifty Shades of Gray, the blasphemous plays, etc. The signs of collapse are everywhere, not just in the financial districts of the world

But times like these are an invitation to hope: to look for signs that indicate restoration of the true, the good, and the beautiful. Note the popularity of Gregorian Chant in recent years, the new media which includes Catholic fiction, films, and literary criticism. New solid and orthodox Catholic colleges and religious orders hold a seeds of promise for a bright future.

So, as you take note of the silliness of our decadent age, remember that what is truly real are those things that mirror most closely the glory of God. Everything else is just a dumb show.
