Here’s a powerful three minutes showing where the denial of “the nature of things” has got us.
This further illustrates the deep infiltration of the philosophical position of ‘swing vote’ Justice Kennedy, which we recently blogged about: "the constitution … allows...the right to define one’s own concept of existence".
This malaise in “young personalities” was predicted by Edward Holloway in a talk given in 1973 , republished in last January’s FAITH magazine:
The heart of the crisis is a crisis of the intellect … The modern scientific civilisation … must be crowned by the head of God Incarnate, or [else it will be crowned by] the head of Man, who is his own god.
… we are called “to forge a new synthesis of Catholicism, of Catholic philosophy, … and the proven wisdom of the modern age. … [we would propose] a unifying philosophy of growth and development embracing all created being in the one economy of this universe … such an outlook or ethos is all-pervasive of modern life, and it underpins the conscious and the subconscious personality of the young. We can show that this process of creation manifests the existence of God Transcendent …
The fact that we have failed to show this to the young would seem to be suggested by the above video.
