Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Worthy Holy Week Reading.

The Real Presence Association in Chicago has an archive of writings by the late Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

I stumbled upon this gem, an analysis of the Book, The Mystery Hidden for Ages in God by Paul M. Quay, S.J.

400 pages in the book written before Fr. Quay's untimely death. Fr. Hardon calls it one of the most significant books of the late 20th century.

Here's a taste of the marvels in the book:

To an even greater degree, Catholics who have matured to this point have always been forced into a ghetto— often enough by their fellow Catholics. This is not usually a constriction in living quarters but of exclusion from the exercise of their competencies in dealing with the issues that most concern their lives, their country, and the Church. Though they may think that they are bumping into invisible walls, set up to keep them out of positions of influence, more often it is they who are invisible. They are passed over and ignored by people who may have no dislike for them but who sense them as strangers to the life of the world around them.
