The Freedom of the Family - Truth and Charity Forum Father Brian Thomas Becket Mullady, O.P.
Can we talk about the principle of subsidiarity too much? The answer is no when we have allowed a Leviathan that is disastrously over reaching, especially threatening the ability to practice one’s faith in the public square. Institutions do not take the temperature of a sick individual, people do. The family can never be replaced by a welfare state. That would be inhumane.
