The world today is in travail

Washington Post

From Letters, Substantially as Published

The world today is in travail. Titanic forces have been unleashed, and they are converting it into an arena of pitiless conflict. Seemingly the cherished things of Christian culture are hanging precariously in the balance. Even the standards by which generations have lived, and which were thought to have been permanently established—standards in behavior, in morals, in economics, in finance, and, indeed, in every department of human activity—have been challenged. In this cataclysmic upheaval many have been torn from their moorings and are adrift.
