A Neoconservativ Catholic Village Starts In Texas

US Catholics will build a Catholic village with a school, a retreat center, residences, gardens, open spaces, and a church in the center.

The project costs $22 million and is located outside Tyler, East Texas. It will be called Veritatis Splendor after John Paul II’s moral encyclical Veritatis Splendor.

The village is founded by the homeschooling family Beckman. Tyler Bishop Joseph Strickland will serve as a spiritual adviser.

Is neoconservative even Catholic?
Didn't they already try this with Ave Maria college in Florida built by the Domino's Pizza guy? If memory serves, in the end they had to cave to the "world" and admit secular anti-Catholic values. The Wanderer had a whole series on it years ago, I recall.

However, the early Christians did not live separately.

Catholics must protect and preserve their faith.

May it prosper under God’s Hand.
There could be concerns about the accountability and welfare in such an insular village.
I wouldn't be interested in the village...... but, hurray for those who want to try it out. Is there any human undertaking that someone can't find fault with, can't give a carping criticism? What's perfect this side of Heaven !

What does Neoconservative mean? Novus Ordo with a twist?
I did not post from opinion. It is not a matter of finding fault or expressing naivety. But rather knowledge, being alert that things have changed in the church and world in an unGodly way. Keep observing ....
