The Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections on Turbulent Times

George Weigel
Ignatius Press, 223 pages

This collection of essays and lectures by Catholic intellectual George Weigel surveys recent history and contemporary concerns from an authentically Catholic perspective. The times are “turbulent” because we face challenges and changes resulting in a weakening or loss of order — in our country, in the world, and in our Church. “Order is not self-maintaining,” Weigel writes. “Order is an achievement, and it must be attained, over and over again.” His focus here is on “diagnosis, not prescription,” yet there is a theme of hope: Catholics can help restore proper order if we remain faithful to the truth and to our mission as “the light of the world.”
