Europe after Christianity

There’s a problem in Great Britain with the dream that we are at our best standing alone as a nation: Henry 8th, our colonial ‘triumphs’, 1940. Others have similar dreams. The belief in this wonderful nation state is the nearest they come to experiencing something sacred. Post-war, this idea lost traction. Is it back? Hopefully not, but does Europe have touch with the truly sacred? The enlightenment ideas human value reflected in talk about rights and dignity are not enough; the talk needs to be of sanctity.
