Let Us Be Catholic

thCAROZHLUThe Fortnight for Freedom kicked off last week.  Beyond assisting in preparing some resources for this, I have given some thought to it and it does make sense.

My new boss, Archbishop Lori, was put it best when he was recently interviewed by the Washington Post and asked “Aren’t we 40 percent of the population? Don’t we provide more health care, more social services, than any other non-governmental organization? Why are we always in the crosshairs? Let us alone. Let us do our job. Let us be Catholics. Let us make our contribution to the common good according to our own likes. That’s what America is about.”

At the opening liturgy of the Fortnight for Freedom held last Thursday night held at “a monument to religious freedom,” Baltimore’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore, Archbishop Lori, in his homily, echoed a line from John Paul II’s visit to Baltimore (It’s a favorite quote of mine, which is how I recognized it.) “Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.”

We should not have government obstructing us from doing what we ought.
