QotD – In memory of Vaclav Havel

In all events, I am certain that our civilisation is heading for catastrophe unless present-day humankind comes to its senses. And it can only come to its senses if it grapples with its short-sightedness, its stupid conviction of its omniscience and its swollen pride, which have been so deeply anchored in its thinking and actions.

Vaclav Havel, quoted by His Grace (and do read the eulogy in full) on this, the day that Our Father called former president Havel home.

The world has lost a precious soul today.
