The Fundamental Crisis of our Age, and the Solution

Protagoras: Homo-mensura

"Developing a Catholic understanding of the mediation of history in the realm of ontology."
Benedict XVI: A Guide for the Perplexed, Tracey Rowland, New York: T & T Clark, 2010, 1, 8.

In other words, the relationship between history and being, i.e. history and truth.

Sounds like "the Word made flesh!"

The solution, of course, is Jesus Christ, "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." The birth of God in time in the Person of Jesus Christ is the historic and definitive Incarnation of the Truth. Bar Him and you are lost, tossed to and fro, on the incomprehensible and apparently infinite sea of space and time!

And He is in the world today, Eucharistic! in the Flesh, in Ecclesia!

Christus heri et hodie
Principium et Finis
et Omega
Ipsius sunt tempora
et saecula
Ipsi gloria et imperium
per universa æternitatis sæcula. Amen.
