Back to Rome, Yet Again

“We should recall that the early Fathers especially were born into a culture that was beginning its moral decline, that the Roman Empire had all but abandoned the institutions of marriage and family, that divorce was common, as were abortion and contraception, that active homosexuality had become a norm for urban pagans, that euthanasia and suicide were unhappy endings to many life stories.  You might call it a culture of death.”

- The Fathers of the Church, by Mike Aquilina, 3rd edition, pg. 53.

Reading this book may just give me hope.
