Western Civilization and Christianity

Henri_de_Lubac“Let us state to begin with that our European civilization is basically Christian. It would be foolish to seek another basis for it. It is no less foolishly irresponsible than thinking we could maintain it at all costs, coping with the crisis in which it is foundering by continuing to dismiss or neglect Christianity itself. One does not live indefinitely from the perfume of an empty vase. . . .”

– Henri de Lubac
