Watch Now.  Join us as Fr. Marcantoni discusses what Professor Jordan Peterson calls the “Matthew Principle” and he takes it as a recognition that nothing stays static. We either progress in the practice and application of the virtues and of justice or our capacity to be a force for good, to be the image and likeness of God in the world, not simply in word but in deed, atrophies and weakens. So namely in the exercise of the Commandments, of a recognizable Christian Life, future Praxis becomes easier, in neglecting to do the good that is in our grasp to accomplish, we become less able to return to it in the future, the one who has, to him more is given, to the one who has not, he loses what little he has.
