Bishop warns on the effects of secularization in Catholic minds.

.- Bishop Jean-Louis Bruguès, O.P, Bishop of Angers (France), warned this Monday during the Synod of Bishops, that secularism has affected catholic minds, reducing therefore the understanding of the eucharistic mystery.

The prelate referred to this phenomenon as "a lasting and well entrenched historical trend. It has produced (secularism) a mentality that pointedly questions the Christian conscience."

"Secularism," explained the bishop, "objects to any form of relationship with the beyond and the invisible world. There is even an auto-secularization within our Christian communities."

"What has become to the Eucharist, ‘Bread descended from heaven’.., if there is no more heaven? It would be seen fit to precise the role the Eucharist should play in the "new evangelization," precisely in the evangelization of our culture, as well as to encourage the youth who have discovered eucharistic adoration the source of their mission modern rationalism," he concluded.
