Peter Rosegger

The vigour of Catholicism is rooted in the link between breadth and depth. This makes it the antithesis of all forms of populism and extremism. The church is tasked with helping to shape society positively, outside the sacristy too. In this it will only succeed if it resists the temptation of any hermetic truncation and finds and offers an appropriate balance between ethical engagement, critical reflection and mystic rooting in an inviting manner.
