Yesterday, Fr. Robert McTeigue wrote about two prophetic passages from Fulton Sheen. In the first clip, Sheen discussed thought and thought-saving devices, using the rhetoric of his day as example. The second passage talks about tolerance in America: of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos.
Even more interesting than the topic of Sheen’s writing is that it sounds like it could be referring to 2016, while it was written in 1931. Fr. McTeigue went on to write:
Darkness has always raged against the Light. What is different about our time is perhaps the swiftness and reach of evil. Where can anyone hide from the powers of seduction or destruction? Whether these are the best or worst of times does not matter. What matters is that these times are our times, or, better said, the times in which Divine Providence calls upon us to serve, testify and love.
What do you think?
