Should Catholics believe that the world is getting better


Exactly. Much of our violence is sterile, out of sight, and at the hands of professionals, not thugs.


Funny enough I do cook and bake in my free time sometimes lol


You are right about that. According to the World Health Organization, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.


The world is practically better relative to other instances in time. However, in some ways one could argue that it’s getting worse. There was more reverence for God in the past than there is now.
