Reclaiming Our Story: A Register Editorial on Catholicism and Culture

Revelation presents the Church’s own story of its pilgrimage through history, a narrative once ingrained in Western culture, from the arts and literature to social tradition and medical ethics. But as many drift away from the stories of Abraham and Sarah, of the Incarnation and Lazarus, a revisionist narrative has been imposed, generating a false tale of the Church’s history in the world and tainting the faithful’s own view of Catholic tradition and doctrine. From the Sept. 25 issue.
