Pat Buchanan: What the Church Needs Is Another Athanasius

This commentary is an interesting comparison of Popes Pius XII and John Paul II. Buchanan lays out much of the gorry details of the decline of the Roman Catholic Church in America. (The most interesting of which to me was that 70% of Catholics in America see the Eucharist as a "symbolic rememinder" of Christ.) The solution that Buchanan suggests for the church is that it needs a new Athanasius to arise. I agree. But it is not just the Roman Catholics who need a new Athanasius to arise in Christendom - we all do!
