As you may know, for years I studied the Middle Ages in order to write my book Return to Order, which I offer you as a free gift:
As modern society sinks further into depravity and chaos, we turn to the Medieval Christendom to learn what a truly Christian society is. While the Middle Ages had its faults, like every human epoch, Pope Leo XIII states in his encyclical Immortale Dei, that the Middle Ages was an era in which the philosophy of the Gospel governed the states and produced results superior to all expectations.
As globalism comes under increasing attack, the right attitude toward the local nation and the global world is hard to find. Too much attachment to a local place can lead to narrow and distorted perspectives that can stifle development. Too little loyalty to a nation in favor of vague global links can cause selfish individualism that ignores the interests of the common good. The constant tension between the local and global, the individual and communal has always plagued modern history.
The real balance was granted to humanity as a gift of God through the Church during the Middles Ages.
A universal vision was supplied by the theocentric, Church-centered and sacral character of the medieval social order. The generalized practice of the cardinal virtue of temperance provided balance and commonsense. Temperance favored the development of a strong love for country and everything local while simultaneously fostering a parallel love for universal values represented by Christendom.
Thus, medieval man built a social, political and international structure similar to that of a Gothic cathedral. The virtues were like the strong and opposing columns that united and balanced one another as they met at the junction of the Gothic arch. This balance is what America needs today.
I hope that you and I share the same love for the Middle Ages, and that is why I offer you a free copy of my book, which you can get here:
