Run, don’t walk, to read Sam Gregg’s latest at Catholic World Report.
Gregg writes about Benedict XVI’s amazing Regensburg Address, 10 years later. He also examines the implications/results of the loss of reason across various sectors of the West.
Teachers: Absorb this, copy it, and go through it with your students.
Regensburg Revisited: Ten Years Later, A West Still in Denial
Irrationality not only manifests itself in violence but also in an inability to apply authentic reason to the many pressing challenges of our age.
Take away: We are sooooo in trouble.
Sam Gregg is involved with ACTON INSTITUTE.
I read this refreshing piece directly after reading an extended bit of tediously enervating rubbish on the last two Synods (“walking together”) from last November’s La Civiltà Cattolica by Antonio Spadaro, SJ. Spadaro, by the way, has a strong interest in the works of Pier Vittorio Tondelli.
Talk about whiplash.
To get rid of the nasty, shower-inducing sense from the later, you might consider picking up James Schall’s helpful book about the Regensburg Address.
Do me a favor… go to the Amazon page for the book and scroll down and click to tell the publisher (St Augustine Press) that you want this book on Kindle.
