The Triumph of Christianity and what it means roughly 2,000 years later

"He won that victory because he used the sign of Jesus. The letters of Jesus' name and he put that on the shields of all his soldiers. Before that, he had a vision that night, that said in this sign you will conquer. He put that symbol on all his soldiers. They went into battle and even though he was outnumbered, he was victorious.”

Roughly 300 years before this battle, Christians were openly persecuted by the Roman Empire. 
After this battle though, Constantine legalized Christianity and the construction of churches quickly followed. This radical shift is commonly referred to as the Triumph of the Church. 

But what exactly can the modern world learn from that victory? This and other topics were discussed during a forum titled 'Mary, Sign of Faith.' Edmund Mazza, who co-chaired the forum says, secularism and politics are once again marginalizing Christians.

"Society is threatened by socialism. By socialism I mean a system where you leave God out. Where the government runs everything and threatens your personal liberty and liberty was  founded on God.”

As an example, he talks about President Obama's health care mandate, where religious groups, like the Church and its institutions, would have to pay for abortion inducing drugs.

"This is a unilateral intrusion into the conscience of Christians and anybody of good will. In fact when Constantine issued the edict of toleration, he didn't just tolerate Christians, he tolerated everybody.”

The anniversary he says, is not only about the triumph of Christianity, but also of tolerance and acceptance. In general the triumph also marks the rise of  Western civilization.
