Recommended Reading – Matt Warner on Timelessness, Relevance, and the Church

What makes something relevant to you? That it matters now, or that it matters in the future as well?

         “When my first child was born I began to feel the weight of the responsibility that comes with shepherding the souls you love most in this world. I am constantly trying to think of ways to ensure that they turn out alright, keep their faith, are happy in life and make it to heaven. So often we forget that Jesus has already given us the way to do that. He gave us the Church. He gave us the Sacraments. He gave us Her wisdom. He gave us the fullness of truth.

Too often we assume that old things are irrelevant just because they’re old. And we forget that perhaps the reason such old things grew so old in the first place was because of how relevant they remain.

Too often we assume that old people are irrelevant just because they’re old. But on the other side of the planet, there’s an old man in the oldest church who is a stark reminder that the timeless wisdom of the Church is always timely.”
