"It's Worth Revisiting" Wednesday - Lost The Sense of the Sacred?

Thank you Allison Gingras at  Reconciled To You and Elizabeth Riordan at Theology Is A Verb for hosting this site each week.

Please show your appreciation to them and to the bloggers who post here by visiting each Wednesday.

Here is what I am sharing this week:

Lost The Sense of the Sacred?

(Originally posted on July 25, 2013)

There is so much of spiritual value that is shared over the internet on a daily basis that goes unrecognized and/or unread - the sheer volume of such material is mind boggling.

One of the contributions we Catholic bloggers can make toward advancing the cause of The New Evangelization is to share some of the spiritual treasures we discover while searching the web with those who might visit our blogs. Many bloggers already do so.

I ran across one of those treasures some time ago at Traditional Catholic Priest. I should have shared this sooner.

Are you among the many Catholics who wonder how it is that so many of our parishes have lost the sense of the sacred? Do you wonder if it is even possible to reestablish such a sense within our church buildings?

Then you will appreciate the insight that Dietrich von Hildebrand offers in this article. You will no doubt be amazed when you discover that he wrote this in 1966.
