“Society has been ‘freed.’ It has been emancipated from God. As has been said, man cannot be neutral for long. He must be ultimately the slave of God or the slave of the Devil. Our choice is between the Servile State of avaricious materialism (factory civilization) and total Christianity.” (1943)
“God ultimately forces men to make a choice: predestining them to free will!
“That coercion is death.
“Since man will only use his will in death it follows that special destiny grants a living death to the elect (to the saints).” (1932)
“The contemporary dichotomy: The individual vs. the person
“The individual: highest duty toward society
“The Person: highest responsibility to God.”
“In the language of God nothing is meaningless—not even pain and suffering.” (1962)
“When men gather together for any other end but God, the seeds of decay are present. Societies as well as Families and Persons must once more depend upon prayer.”
—from the essay “Images” (1943)
