In 1979, Jean Guitton, a personal friend of Pope Paul VI, was repeating to a journalist details of a conversation he had been having with the pope shortly before his death. Guitton said:
Paul VI was right. We can see that today. We are experiencing an unprecedented crisis. The Church, indeed the history of the world, has never seen the like of it. When Christ was walking in the streets of Galilee, the world was pagan, but so many pagans of the West and East at least had a sense of mystery. We could say that for the first time in its very long history, humanity as a whole is a-theological. It no longer has a clear — or even confused, for that matter — sense of what we call ‘the mystery of God.’ This crisis besetting our sense of the mystery, afflicting humanity as a whole, has also infiltrated the Catholic Church.
