Of Mysticism and Social Justice: Beatitudes Born of Magnificat

Beatitudes Born of Magnificat ©Alfred Eaker 2018

“We have to make ourselves heard. Christians have a grave responsibility to protest clearly and forcibly against trends that lead inevitably to crimes which the Church deplores and condemns. Ambiguity, hesitation and compromise are no longer permissible. War must be abolished. A world government must be established. We have still time to do something about it, but the time is rapidly running out.”

Thomas Merton, Peace in the Post-Christian Era
