Has it ever occured to you guys just how much society and it’s development owes to the Catholic Church?
The church invented:
- Banking(or more specifically International Banking)
- Travel Agencies(Yep! had to organise pilgrimages somehow!)
- Penitentiaries(Prisons! hence the name Penitentiary which comes from Penitent)
- Modern Style Public Schools
Not to mention other artistic and scientific things like the fact it practically funded the renaissance…
Now here’s my second question… is modern secular society using such inventions without respecting the Catholic roots of society? What will happen if society forgets just how much the church has carried Western Civilization on it’s back? Is that happening today? are people forgetting just how much positiveness the faith of our lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has given to this world when they support things like Athiesm and Abortion?
