This week's question for Fr. Barron comes from Jeff Miller (The Curt Jester - splendoroftruth.com). He notes Blessed John Henry Newman's claim that "to be deep in history is to cease to be protestant." And then asks if there's any truth to applying the same idea to, not just protestantism, but secularism also.

Check out Fr. Barron's response and discuss amongst yourselves (below):
