Fr. Dwight Longenecker was brought up in an Evangelical home in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the fundamentalist Bob Jones University with a degree in Speech and English, he studied theology at Oxford University. Eventually he was ordained as an Anglican priest and served as a curate, a school chaplain in Cambridge and a country parson on the Isle of Wight. In 1995, realizing that he and the Anglican Church and on divergent paths, he and his young family were received into the Catholic Church. For ten years he continued to live in England where he worked as a freelance writer and charity worker. Then in 2006 the door opened to return to the USA and be ordained as a Catholic priest. Fr Longenecker now servesas Pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Greenville, South Carolina.
Fr Longenecker is a prolific author, blogger, speaker and broadcaster. He has written twenty books on Catholic culture, apologetics and Benedictine spirituality as well as hundreds of articles for various papers, journals, websites and magazines. His award winning blog, Standing on My Head is read by thousands worldwide. Fr Longenecker’s latest book, The Mystery of the Magi explores the historical background of the three wise men. He is working on a book about C.S.Lewis’ Mere Christianity, and is developing ideas for podcast fiction, a stage play on Shakespeare and a farcical black comedy.

Notre Dame De Paris

Early Notre Dame 

“A good architect will use modern materials and methods to devise a roof and spire for Notre Dame which takes advantage of up to date technologies while building a spire that is modern in style, while complementing the rest of the cathedral. The spire should be a graceful and humble accent to the Gothic masterpiece.

The traditionalist will critique such a spire for being too modern. The modernist will criticize it for being a boring replica.

A few years ago in our parish in South Carolina we built a new church in the Romanesque style. When the architect was challenged by one of his peers for simply repeating a worn out and dated style his reply was, “This style of architecture is like a sonnet. It has certain characteristics and disciplines. When you write a sonnet you stay within those boundaries, but your sonnet is original. It may be a Romanesque, but it is our Romanesque.”

Met Gala 2018

“The whole thing came across as trailer trash with cash.

What tops it all is that Cardinal Dolan and Fr James Martin were in attendance like official chaplains to Vanity Fair.  One doesn’t want to be too much of a spoil sport, but let’s be honest–this sort of vulgarity with Catholic clergy playing along is reminiscent of the decadence of Renaissance Florence and Rome. There and then the prelates mixed with the super wealthy, either turning a blind eye on their profligacy, prostitution, racketeering and promiscuity or else justifying it and participating in it.

I wish  Michael Voris– the  Savonarola de nos jours might have turned up to turn up the volume and turn up the temperature.”

“The sexual libertarians will say, “This is not Puritanism. The Puritans were against sex because they thought it was dirty and bad.”

Well maybe some thought that, but not really.

Christian sexual morality is more subtle than that. I can’t speak for the Puritans, but I can explain that Catholic sexual morality is based on the innate dignity of each human being and the mutual respect that is required for true love to prosper. In other words, we’re talking about power when we talk about sex.

For Catholics the sexual act is an act of mutual self giving. The man and the woman are both created in God’s image and their complementarity is a beautiful recognition of equal respect and honor. There is no power struggle in this idea of human love. Instead each one lays down their claim to power in loving service to the other.”
