Charles Darwin, the father of natural selection, thinks that compassion is humanity’s strongest evolutionary instinct. In the Descent of Man, he declared that “those communities, which included the greatest number of the most compassionate members, would flourish best.”
Protestantism needs a dose of Catholicism. I say this not in an effort to reprimand Protestants, but rather to draw attention to some of the beautiful practices of the Catholic church. It is difficult to put a finger on the Protestant church and what each denomination needs, but, as a Protestant myself, I realize that it can be easy to put Catholicism into a box and stereotype its followers for “worshipping Mary” or “praying to saints”.
The Catholic Church has always treasured and defended the unique teachings and traditions that comprise her faith; indeed, she is firm in saying that nothing new doctrinally, theologically, or spiritually can be learned from an outside denomination.
