“It is precisely because a baby brings the unconditional love of God to us in a renewed way that evil cannot abide it, and works so desperately to prevent it.”
Wow. Yes, so very true.
Elizabeth Scalia has a thought provoking post on “the idol of I. The idol of myself”. Go read it.
This is our culture. The way we live. Literal golden calves? No, but idolatry is alive and well, and it is killing us.
I just ordered Elizabeth’s new book “Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life” and look forward to reading it.
