A Good Quote

"When human affairs are so ordered that there is no recognition of God, there is a belittling of man."
(Joseph Ratzinger, The Spirit of the Liturgy, 19)

Boy, isn't that what we see happening in our world today! As our culture speeds ever faster toward a humanistic secularism, an ordering with no recognition of God, more and more people are being shoved out of the way, off to the side, and belittled. Whether it's the unborn, the elderly, the handicapped, the sick, in religion or in politics, dialogue and respect are out and belittling is in. So what is done to elevate man by getting rid of God actually does the very opposite.
