Quote of the Day

It is a characteristic of any decaying civilization that the great masses of people are unaware of the tragedy. Humanity in a crisis is generally insensitive to the gravity of the times in which it lives. Men do not want to believe their own times are wicked, partly because they have no standard outside themselves by which to measure their times. If there is no fixed concept of justice, how shall men know it is violated? Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
