Why would The Angelus want to cover topics such as economics, politics, problems touching on race, the connection of law & liberty, and the differences and problems of both democracy & socialism? While they are not theological topics in themselves, the Catholic Faith does inform our understanding of these various social issues.

"The high contingent of Catholics on the island was composed largely of Irish prisoners of common crimes, but it gradually included educated political prisoners as well as honest men guilty of the 'crime of theft' fueled by starvation."

“I have been able to confirm with great satisfaction the extraordinary development of the groups of faithful Catholics both at the chapels of our priest-friends and in the Society. St. Mary’s College, the school of St. Louis, Missouri, the beautiful chapel and rectory of Phoenix, and, at the last moment, the acquisition of a big church in Kansas City, are reasons to hope for the continuation of the Church in the United States.”
—Archbishop Lefebvre (circa 1980)

"Not only was Modernism spreading throughout Europe; the intensity, the density and the sheer quantity of the polemics surrounding the movement gave it all the earmarks of a crisis within the Church herself."

"No, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City." —St. Pius X, Our Apostolic Mandate

We commend to you, Venerable Brethren, in a special manner, the necessity of the sound religious training and moral formation of all who undertake this apostolate [of Catholic Action]. They must be “nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine” and “exercise themselves unto godliness” (I Tim. 4:6-7). As apostles of their brothers in blood they may win countless souls to Christ and, enlarging His Kingdom in India, may effect an ever wider extension of the inestimable blessings of that Kingdom of truth and life, of holiness, of justice, of love and of peace. What greater blessing could We wish your nation, what nobler ambition could inspire the Catholics of all India than the realization of such a divine plan?—Pope Pius XII, Radio Message, March 12, 1948

“I had a glimpse of this task in a sort of dream in Dakar around 1958. It could very well be said that God prepared me for this task for a very long time. Blessed be God for His ineffable inspirations and for the immediate support from the many benefactors that this work received, and which even visibly (the benefactors as well) were brought by Providence. Did I save the Catholic priesthood, the Catholic Mass, and the Catholic Faith? Certain people attribute these wonderful things to me. But, you see, I am for nothing in this.” -- Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre

When the insolence of man stubbornly rejected God, God finally told him: “Your will be done,” and the last plague is dropped... It is not famine, it is not the plague, it is not even death: it is man! When man is delivered to man, then it can be said that he knows the wrath of God. —Louis Veuillot
