“Only the man who has roots has a future. Part and parcel of the problems of modern man are that because he has cut his roots with his own past, he can no longer project himself to the future. Man, without an inherited and objective frame of reference, cannot even make sense of the present in which he lives. To attempt to achieve freedom by escaping from the burden of tradition tends to result in a new enslavement to a chaotic present.”

– Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro
