“How many problems in theology seem unsolvable –
simply because they start from badly-posed questions.”
Dom Paul Nau OSB
Confused at the state of the world and the Church?
Frustrated by conflicting explanations and theories?
Looking for answers, but don’t know where to start?
Then you’ve come to the right place.
The WM Review is an online journal dedicated to approaching theology, history, and related matters from the true principles. It is vital that we start from the right principles and proper sources. We must use these to judge our situation, not the other way around.
Without the right questions, we won’t make sense of the right answers.
Here, you will find the tools and principles from traditional Roman Catholic theology, to help you ask the right questions and make sense of current events. With these proper Catholic principles in place, you will rediscover that childlike love and trust in the one, holy, catholic, apostolic and Roman Church; your faith will be “renewed like the eagle’s”; and you will enjoy a peace which the world cannot give.
