To inform Christians and non-Christians alike about the West’s moral vacuum, which has led to a de-Christianization of society and the rise of Islamism, both threatening our natural rights endowed by our Creator. The end goal is to promote the teachings of Jesus Christ with the hope that the traditional concept of the institution of the family, which is the foundation of civilization, will be resurrected.
This blog’s image that is taken from a frontispiece of a French Bible (c. 1220-1230), known as the Codex Vindobonensis, depicts God using a compass in the act of creation — sacred art often used the image of the Son of God instead of God the Father in order to highlight the teaching of the Holy Trinity. For many medieval scholars, science, especially geometry and astronomy, was linked directly to the divine. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God’s act of Creation. He has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship the truth: God. The freemasons, who have appropriated for themselves such symbols and reconfigured the notion of the Great Architect, erroneously believe that we as human beings cannot conceive “the Absolute Truth of the Great Architect.” Rather, we can only have an approximate grasp of it.
Ultimately, our search for the truth cannot be better captivated than what St. Augustine said in his Confessions: “Late have I loved you, beauty so old and so new: late have I loved you. And see, you were within and I was in the external world and sought you there, and in my unlovely state I plunged into those lovely created things which you made. You were with me, and I was not with you. The lovely things kept me far from you, though if they did not have their existence in you, they had no existence at all. You called and cried out loud and shattered my deafness. You were radiant and resplendent, you put to flight my blindness. You were fragrant, and I drew in my breath and now pant after you. I tasted you, and I feel but hunger and thirst for you. You touched me, and I am set on fire to attain the peace which is yours.”
