Narrow Scholasticism
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

What is narrow Scholasticism?

It can only foster an intellectual schism.

Narrow conservative teaching or magisterium does not enlighten.

But serves to mentally handicap and frighten.

Are the Dogmas or enclycals? Decreed by God or man

If they are by man they will not stand.

One must be open and broad in their Scholasticism.

One must also rise above the petty pious sarcasm.

Delve into another persons thought and mind.

The paths to unity, holiness and peace will you find.
