What is St. Peter’s List?

“Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.”

The Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Peter’s List proudly proclaims that The Catholic Life is the Good Life. From the beatific vision to robust trappist ales, SPL prepares lists that reflect the beauty and truth of the Catholic tradition. Holding the beloved Dumb Ox – St. Thomas Aquinas – as the community’s patron saint, SPL proudly draws from the Scholastic tradition and champions a faithful and intellectual articulation of the Catholic faith.

Most of all we seek to live the Good life, the Catholic life, and share that truth with others.

Long live His Holiness Pope Francis.
Long live our Bishop of Rome Emeritus, Benedict XVI.
Vivat Papa.

We are Saint Peter’s List.

 

What is a Lister?

Not to be confused with a plow with a double moldboard, Listers are the dedicated followers of St. Peter’s List. Seeking to live the life of virtue, they pursue the riches of Christ and his Church. While smoking a pipe – in the spirit of Tolkien & the St. John Kemble – and savoring blessed Maronite wine, they are able to discuss the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the tenets of classical political philosophy, and the merits of Thomism and the liberal arts tradition. Ultimately the Lister seeks to live the good life, the Catholic life, and share that wondrous existence with others.

Become a Lister by following SPL on Twitter, Facebook via RSS or subscribe to our daily list via email.
