Commonplaces

Piquant excerpts lifted from Touchstone editors' own reading & listening.



The real crisis has scarcely begun. We will have to count on terrific upheavals. But I am equally certain about what will remain at the end: not the Church of the political cult, which is dead already, but the Church of faith. It may well no longer be the dominant social power to the extent that she was until recently; but it will enjoy a fresh blossoming and be seen as man's home, where he will find life and hope beyond death.

Fr. Joseph Ratzinger
German radio broadcast, Christmas Day, 1969
