The editors of Third Millennium believe that the approach to modernity espoused and promoted by Pope Leo XIII, an approach that largely inspired the Catholic intellectual renaissance of the 19th and 20th centuries, is still valid for our age. During the time that this approach was more or less explicitly embraced by the Church, Catholic life in nearly every area exhibited a vitality that generally is lacking today. This does not mean that we are seeking a return to the past for its own sake, or that we do not recognize the many failings in the Church of that time or the good that has come since then. But we believe that particularly with regard to her intellectual, social and liturgical life, the Catholic Church of that period offered a response to the modern world that was faithful to the Gospel and that, on a fundamental level, corresponded to the longings of modernity.
