“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)

Wisdom on Wednesdays—A living death

“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)
