Thoughts From Days Past and A Truism

He said this at least 30 years ago.


G. K. Chesterton
He said this over 77  years ago.


... We were terrified beyond all else by the disastrous state of human society today. For who can fail to see that society is at the present time, more than in any past age, suffering from a terrible and deep-rooted malady which, developing every day and eating into its inmost being, is dragging it to destruction? You understand, Venerable Brethren, what this disease is—apostasy from God, than which in truth nothing is more allied with ruin

Blessed Pope Pius IX
He said this about 150  years ago.



The more things change,
the more they stay the same.
