“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

My parish , Saint Vital
In a previous blog post I wrote about the Catholic Church at the top of the hill in the town where I live. The post appeared under the title "A Special Place to help calm my fears". See http://www.humanlifematters.org/2016/05/a-special-place.html 

The bell in the steeple rings three times each day throughout the seasons and marks the gentle rhythms of daily life for my wife and me. While our grandchildren have often used the sound of the noontime bell as a signal to come home to Grandma's house for lunch, ... It also serves as a reminder for me to quietly pray the Angelus.
