Reflections
"Just think of the television, which is the true and great Moloch within our homes. We already know all about fashion, about what we should eat, how we should dress, choose, etc., but we no longer have a voice that shows us the path and meaning of this life, especially when it is so fragile, so miserable. That is why it is important to come back again to the great themes. Have the courage to propose great thoughts; I think one of the great problems of today's youth is that they are no longer able to find meaningful answers and so they allow themselves to drift and be swayed by contemporary society."

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, leading the annual Lenten retreat for the pope and leaders of the Roman Curia, on Feb. 20, reported in CatholicCulture.org.
