Have I Seen Errors in the World's Propaganda?

'We... afraid of being left behind in contemporary thought, assent too readily to the conclusions of a humanist and materialist society...

'The movement of the world slides over our preference for spiritual things, and we wake up to find that we have accepted earthly things at the world's valuation.  

'It is only the wisdom of the Spirit that can show up the more hidden errors contained in the world's propaganda, and to possess our share of this wisdom, we have to pray. 

'Prayer alone assures both the light to see and the strength to resist.'

(Dom Hubert Van Zeller, the Yoke of Divine Love, Templegate, 1957, p.  36)

  1. Sometimes I am so moved by your posts that there is not much more to say other than, "Yes." Thank you, Nancy.

    1. Kathleen, what a kind thing to say. Thank you.

  2. Wow..this good! So true. How are we ever going to resist the pull of the world if we don't pray?!

    1. I also love this quote, Trish (which is why I shared it :)!). Thank God for prayer!
