"Nem se deve tocar na palavra ‘pecado’ em se tratando de Maria; e isto em respeito Àquele de quem mereceu ser a Mãe, que a preservou de todo pecado por sua graça"
- Santo Agostinho, Sermão 215,3. 325 DC
"Nor should we play on the word ‘sin’ in the case of Mary, and this in regard to Him who deserved to be the Mother, which preserved her from all sin by His grace"
- St. Augustine, Sermon 215.3. 325 DC

New technology – like the computer – freed men and women from all kinds of drudgery, saved them vast amounts of time… .And yet the time saved did not seem to mean additional leisure or greater opportunities for meditation and reflection. Instead, with each new wave of technology, the pace of life increased; there was more to do, more choices to make, more things to experience, and people eagerly seized upon those experiences and filled the hours that had only moments ago become empty. Each year life seemed to be flitting past with far greater speed than the year before, as if God had cranked up the control knob on the flow of time. But that wasn’t right, either, because to many people, even the concept of God seemed dated in an age in which the universe was being forced to let go of its mysteries on a daily basis. Science, technology, and change were the only gods now, the new Trinity; and while they were not consciously cruel and judgmental, as some of the old gods had been, they were too coldly indifferent to offer any comfort to the sick, the lonely, and the lost.
