Catholic Quote of the Day — from Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“It is not the sanctuary that is in danger; it is civilization. It is not infallibility that may go down; it is personal rights. It is not the Eucharist that may pass away; it is freedom of conscience. It is not divine justice that may evaporate; it is the courts of human justice. It is not that God may be driven from his throne; it is that men may lose the meaning of home; it is not that the war may never end; it is that peace may never come. For peace on earth will come only to those who give glory to God! It is not the church that is in danger, it is the world!” (Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Seven Pillars of Peace, page 22, Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1945)
