Reactionary

The Catholic theologian Henri de Lubac was no reactionary. Quite the contrary, he was a man of great learning and heartfelt sympathy for those caught in the turmoil of history. In one instance, however, he was reactionary:

“In examining this entirely secularized concept of society, which at the present time dominates men’s minds everywhere and only degrades what it has inherited of the historical and social character of our Faith, we must have the courage to show ourselves resolutely reactionary.”

Henri de Lubac
