PAUSE FOR THOUGHT

“The Catholic Church never suits the particular mood of any age, because it was made for all ages. A Catholic knows that if the Church married the mood of any age in which it lived, it would be a widow in the next age. The mark of the true Church is that it will never get on well with the passing moods of the world: ‘I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (St John 15:19)’” Archbishop Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
