Liberation of man…social emancipation

For those who speak of being on the right or wrong side of history — that old Hegelian-Marxist axiom — the renown French theologian has a reminder:

Henri_de_Lubac

“‘Liberation of man,’ understood as a social emancipation, is a human undertaking which, even when inspired by faith, brings about . . . by human means certain changes in the organization of temporal society, and which becomes part of human history, with all the hazards . . . of going from bad to worse , which will always remain possible in this groping and sinful world.” – Henri de Lubac
