In his daily homily today our Holy Father Pope Francis spoke on today’s first Mass reading, which was from Maccabees.

Pope Francis at the May 12 Marcia per la Vita (March for Life) Internazionale

“In his daily homily Pope Francis cautioned against modern society’s push for a unified secular ideology, saying that this does not create positive globalization but rather an ‘adolescent progressivism’….

Calling attention to the 20th century novel ‘Lord of the World’ which focuses on this spirit of worldliness which leads to apostasy, Pope Francis cautioned against the attitude of wanting ‘be like everyone else,’ which he referred to as an ‘adolescent progressivism.’

‘What do you think?’ he pressed, ‘that today human sacrifices are not made? Many, many people make human sacrifices and there are laws that protect them.’”

Amen, Holiness!
