The Catholic Polity and Its Practical Obstacles


In this talk, Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro, director of HLI's Rome office, explores the idea of the ideal Catholic society, which can be achieved, even in today's environment. The world is dominated by secular humanism and Marxism, which believes not in freedom, but in self-indulgence.

We are called to transform society. We cannot and should not expect to make it perfect, but we should work to change it by combating moral relativism, which can lead a democratic society that is not based on natural law toward totalitarianism. This is part of our mission as the Church Militant.
