Catholic Perennialism

"Humaniity is one, organically one by its divine structure; it is the Church's mission to reveal to men that pristine unity which they have lost, to restore and complete it," wrote Henri-Marie Cardinal de Lubac in his Catholicism: Christ and the Common Destiny of Man.

(Coming to mind is Martin Mosebach's suggestion that Nicolás Gómez Dávila found "the Catholic Church, which he did not regard as simply one of several Christian confessions, but as the great collecting tank of all religions, as the heiress of all paganism, as the still living original religion.")
