FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Secular universities have their dogmas too.  And dogma number one is that you can never prove things that you cannot see.  A dizzying diversity of opinion exists at most universities.  Unfortunately this is a diversity increasingly founded upon a dull, homogeneous skepticism.  Inside the secular university the rule of thumb is this:  you may take religion or leave it as you like, as long as you do not take it seriously."  from Dr. Ryan Topping's, "Rebuilding Catholic Culture; How the Catechism Can Shape Our Common Life"

QUOTE II:  "If the Church is to reclaim culture as a medium of God's saving work, then the living tradition cannot be consigned to the past.  It will have to become for us, our architecture, in our painting, in our music, in our literature, and in our theology once more a living and vital force if we are not to abandon ourselves to the spirit of the age."  same source


Intrigued by those quotes?  Dr. Ryan Topping, who was once a member of St. Sebastian Parish recently spoke to all of the pastors and catechetical leaders of the Diocese of Cleveland and had this book for sale.  I highly recommend it.  You can find it on line HERE.

A good number of people sent this video to me concerning the up and coming election.  It is 20 minutes long so settle in to watch it.
