Pope B16 commends Bl. John Duns Scotus as a Great Christian Theologian


See video above for details.

Blessed John Duns Scotus is finally getting the recognition he deserves. I’ve conspired with some Franciscans and we’re hatching a plot to get John Duns Scotus canonized as a saint – Maybe B16 is the man to do it. The plan is comical and provocative. Check back for details!

    We all know what B16 really thiks of J. D. Scotus: that he is the original voluntarist, guilty of hatching (with the later Occam) that ultimate plot against humanity that we call modernity! (See the Regensburg Address)

    Like Duns Scotus, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Walker Percy, and Walter Ong also see the self as something that is essentially unknowable and the center of the free person. I wonder if one could say that freedom is a potential of the will which can only be actualized in a confrontation of the mind with the true.
