"The Wrong Side of History" -- Francis Cardinal George, RIP

“... God sustains the world, in good times and in bad. Catholics, along with many others, believe that only one person has overcome and rescued history: Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of the Virgin Mary, savior of the world and head of his body, the church. Those who gather at his cross and by his empty tomb, no matter their nationality, are on the right side of history. Those who lie about him and persecute or harass his followers in any age might imagine they are bringing something new to history, but they inevitably end up ringing the changes on the old human story of sin and oppression. There is nothing 'progressive' about sin, even when it is promoted as 'enlightened.'

“The world divorced from the God who created and redeemed it inevitably comes to a bad end. It’s on the wrong side of the only history that finally matters...”

~ Francis Cardinal George 

My Comments: 
The ONLY "side of history" that I'm particularly concerned about:  Revelation 20:11-15
