Veritas et Sapientia – The Epic Battle of Catholic Man vs Secular Man

Editor’s Note: The Epic Battle of Catholic Man vs Secular Man is excerpted from Joseph Pearce’s newest book, Literature, What Every Catholic Should Know.

In the great works of literature we discover a deep understanding of man’s been and purpose. We discover that the human person is homo viator [Catholic Man], a pilgrim or wayfarer who journeys through mortal life with eternal life always in mind. This understanding of who we are has been lost.

Listen to: Mike Church’s latest interview with Joseph Pearce!

Viewing the panoramic vista of the history of the west, we can see three brought it ages of man. The first of these ages is the pre-Christian or pagan age; the second age is the age of Christ and him; and the third age maybe called the age of disenchantment.

We should remind ourselves that these three ages do not represent a linear progression in the right direction, As the denizens of the agent disenchantment would have us believe, but a manifestation of the perennial struggle between homo superbus [Secular Man] and homo viator, between barbarism in civilization. On the assumption that civilization is preferable or superior to barbarism, it could be said more truthfully that the agent disenchantment represents a move in a wrong or regressive direction. – Joseph Pearce’s newest book, Literature, What Every Catholic Should Know available in the Catholic Corner at Mike Church’s Founder’s Tradin’ Post
