From the Ignatius Insight Scoop blog:
The modern world lives on its intellectual capital, exploits the prevalent doctrine of the moment in the interest of its heresies; floodlights the universe with a gleam of partial illumination, or darkens the skies with doubt; the Church, who is wiser and older, stores new things and old alike in her treasure-house, and brings them out in their due relation to enrich, permanently, the experience of mankind. - Ronald Knox
From "St Albert the Great" in Pastoral and Occasional Sermons (Ignatius, 2002), an endlessly rewarding collection that contains dozens of brilliant sermons by one of the most erudite writers of the 20th century.
