DARK CLOUDS OVER A CLOSED WORLD
The end of historical consciousness
14. These are the new forms of cultural colonization. Let us not forget that “peoples that abandon their tradition and, either from a craze to mimic others or to foment violence, or from unpardonable negligence or apathy, allow others to rob their very soul, end up losing not only their spiritual identity but also their moral consistency and, in the end, their intellectual, economic and political independence”. One effective way to weaken historical consciousness, critical thinking, the struggle for justice and the processes of integration is to empty great words of their meaning or to manipulate them. Nowadays, what do certain words like democracy, freedom, justice or unity really mean? They have been bent and shaped to serve as tools for domination, as meaningless tags that can be used to justify any action.
Our culture has entered into a new, damaging darkness.Bishop Patrick J. Zurek
Inspired by Gospel, Christians need to be active in society, pope says
socialist-catholics gird their loins in fear that the polls which show their master knocking on the door of the white house are inaccurate…
maga-catholics gird their loins in fear that the polls which show their master exiting the door of the white house are accurate…
Catholics gird their loins in LOVE, for LOVE knowing that their MASTER doesn’t need polls to decide which servant will be allowed to await at the white house for their MASTER’s return!
