Organizing against man

St. Procop's Church for sale, cheap

As the French Jesuit Henri de Lubac observed in 1944, "It is not true, as is sometimes said, that man cannot organize the world without God.  What is true is that, without God, he can only organize it against man."  The Nazis and the Communists have had their turn organizing a brutal world against man.  Now it is the turn of the liberal, democratic state.   The signs that we are living in a world increasingly organized against man are hard to ignore.  So far, the level of brutality has been low, though brutality may lie ahead.   Instead, the hallmark of the world without God organized by the liberal democratic state is its inexorability.  The most painful part for Catholics is that many of us cheerfully cooperated in the building of this new type of Godless world.  Mark Steyn has more here.  (h/t Pewsitter)

St. Joseph, patron of the Church, pray for us.
