The nation is on course for self-destruction as a result of ignoring our God-given moral compass, which ultimately keeps everything in balance, according to John Horvat II, author of Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society Where We've Been, How We Got Here, and Where We Need to Go. Horvat, who is an internationally followed author and scholar, is sparking a movement among Catholics who are eagerly tuning in to his messages about the need to return to faith and family, in an age of exploding technological advances and unhinged economies.
Horvat will bring his much lauded presentation "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother: The Key to Bringing America Back to Order," to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, at 10:30 a.m., on June 7, 2014. The center is located 5440 Moeller Ave.
"Our blind embrace of an economy driven by the pursuit of instant gratification, regardless of the consequences, is unsustainable and has thrown us into a state of socioeconomic chaos," says Horvat.
In his book, Horvat draws from his rich Christian past to explain the correlation between the economy, faith and moral values. Without relying solely on statistics and economic indicators, he shows how society's obsession for a secular, materialistic culture is causing social and psychological emptiness and economic ruin. With five Catholic institutions of higher learning and more than 400,000 practicing faithful in the region, local advocates of Return to Order requested that Horvat bring his message to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
Return to Order ranked #1 on Amazon/kindle in four countries in Dec., has sold 20,000 copies to date, and has received dozens of endorsements scholars, clergy, politicians and other leading American and European figures.
"Return to Order provides an interesting analysis of how the United States has departed from the spiritual, cultural, and economic precepts that supported the founding and the early history of our republic. It also sets forth valuable recommendations for restoring our society to its foundation of ordered liberty and traditional values," said The Honorable Edwin Meese III, Former Attorney General of the United States.
In addition to Return to Order, Horvat is the author of hundreds of articles, some of which have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, FOX News, The Christian Post, The Washington Times, ABC News and C-SPAN. Horvat's writing has been compared to that of Richard Weaver and Russell Kirk, both major conservative intellectuals.
" offers a synthesis of Catholicism's invaluable contribution to the building of a humane and ordered society in which the human person can flourish,"Most Reverend Donald J. Hying, Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
