Letter to The Editor - God Never Leaves Humanity Without Prophets, Sages and Saints

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     In bemoaning ‘the generational decline in the Christian faith as guide to the common good’ (‘Blessed be the egoistic individuals’, 8-9/7) Paul Kelly becomes too gloomy when he finishes by asserting that ‘once dismantled’, the old order of devotion to family, faith and public welfare ‘cannot be put back together.’ He has forgotten the permanent truth of the symbol of the phoenix rising from the ashes.

     And no, it’s not true that ‘modesty, humility and Christian forbearance make no sense in today’s world’, though maybe we could do with some strengthening of them. It will come: God never leaves humanity without prophets, sages and saints, to recall wandering sheep and chastise goats.
