It has become fashionable in our time to reject the doctrine of original sin, which, as the Catechism says, leaves us “prone to evil.” In myriads of ways our daily newspapers confirm this doctrine. Four times each day, morning, midday, evening and night, newscasters chronicle in words and pictures the spectacle of man’s inhumanity to man. Through our mass-media, no generation was ever better informed of the effects of original sin. We can think of many spectacular examples. Our own sins may be less newsworthy but nonetheless deadly.
