I really have been unpacking - all day. (My car, too, has finally arrived from the West, so I'm well-pleased; for my recent trip down south I had to borrow one.)
While there's still a lot still to sort out, at least I've set up all my books, CD's, etc. in my study, providing some semblance of due order. I decided the only way to make enough room was to move anything non-theological elsewhere (making exceptions for Latin, Greek, Hebrew and philosophy, as propædutics to theology); so the sun room now has about eight more shelves of books in it as well! I finally found enough space here in the study for everything by running the breviaries, missals and Guéranger's Liturgical Year along the mantelpiece over the blocked-up fireplace (which is back-to-back with the hearth in the next room).
I could bore readers further with minutiæ, but instead I'll ask for suggestions, as I'm thinking I really must get around to subscribing to some magazines, and not just idly read blogs and call myself informed. How about this list:
- The Latin Mass magazine (is it still going? I haven't subscribed for years);
- Oriens (Australian Traddie publication);
- StAR (St Austin Review - sorta kinda cultural);
- Communio (probably very expensive, but I was given some years' of back issues, and I like to read real theology, not just basic stuff);
- First Things;
- The Priest (journal of the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy - good to see what the black shirt brigade are up to);
- AD 2000 (Australian orthodox Catholic news coverage);
- The Catholic (piety from the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer);
- Missio Immaculatæ International (some Immaculate Franciscans were hawking it recently).
Any suggestions pro, con or in addition? Do tell!
