The power of the Enlightenment’s “critique” of all inherited tradition continued to be balanced and contained by the force of Christian tradition up until the end of the Second World War.

Ultimate Reality is the fountain from which all knowledge springs, yet is beyond the “limits of empirical science,” whether from light spectra captured by the Hubble, exotic particles detected by the Large Hadron Collider, or cellular structures unraveled by the electron microscope. It is something or Someone, that must be revealed and, in fact, has been: “In the beginning, was the Logos.”

At the Baltimore assembly earlier this month, the bishops approved an eloquently ambiguous statement on capital punishment by a vote of 194 for, 8 against, with 3 abstentions. Perhaps they were thinking like Nancy Pelosi who said of the Affordable Care Act: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Years from now, whether the Church has risen from its present slough of despondency to a shining new eminence, or lies battered in a heap of broken basilicas and quivering banalities, the wonderful question will be: “How was it that at a meeting in 2019, almost all of the American bishops voted for something without knowing what it means?” Hope for the ‘American Church’ is fading rapidly.
