We live not in an age of apostasy, but of spiritual regression
Fr. Brian Van Hove, S.J., who has written several pieces for Ignatius Insight, gave the homily today on EWTN’s televised Mass; his thoughts about apostasy and regression are well worth pondering. He also makes passing mention of Hans Urs von Balthasar and of a brilliant two-volume work, Covenantal Theology: The Eucharistic Order of History (University Press of America, 1991), by Fr. Donald J. Keefe, S.J., which I bought years ago at the urging of Dr. Mark Lowery (University of Dallas), who studied under Keefe at Marquette.
Fr. Van Hove is the Chaplain to the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan.
