Thanks so much for posting this, NYer.

After I finished reading it , a Scriptural passage came to my mind:

Pontius Pilate: “Shall I crucify your king?”

The crowd: “We have no king but Caesar.”

Christ’s Church will be attacked, scorned, and ridiculed, but it will never be destroyed…. The bold fact the enemies of God must face is that modern civilization has conquered the world, but in doing so has lost its soul. And in losing its soul it will lose the very world it gained. Even our own so-called liberal culture in the United States, which has tried to avoid complete secularization by leaving little zones of individual freedom, is in danger of forgetting that these zones were preserved only because religion was in their soul. And as religion fades so will freedom, for only where the spirit of God is, is there liberty.”

~Bishop Sheen

As long as his words inspire us, he lives.

the sin of Pilate was indifference.

The Catholics who refuse to participate in politics even at a minimal level: indifference. A poor sense of justice. one of the virtues.

The daily communicants delighted in setting me straight on primary day, “Oh, we DON’T DO primaries. We’re registered ‘unaffiliated’.”

Soon, the lost Catholics in Connecticut will lose their church ... their catholic hospitals will soon be sold to corporate players, are the nursing homes next?
