I enjoy certain blogs. I read several daily, and a few when they post more or less frequently, and I even enjoy the video blogging I watch on Youtube.
This morning I was reading Fr. Z’s Blog and ran across a quote from Cardinal Burke which I liked, so I am sharing it here:
“We as Catholics have not properly combated (the culture) because we have not been taught our Catholic Faith, especially in the depth needed to address these grave evils of our time. This is a failure of catechesis both of children and young people that has been going on for fifty years. It is being addressed, but it needs much more radical attention… What has also contributed greatly to the situation is an exaltation of the virtue of tolerance which is falsely seen as the virtue which governs all other virtues. In other words, we should tolerate other people in their immoral actions to the extent that we seem also to accept the moral wrong. Tolerance is a virtue, but it is certainly not the principal virtue; the principal virtue is charity… Charity means speaking the truth. I have encountered it (not speaking the truth) many times myself as a priest and bishop. It is something we simply need to address. There is far too much silence — people do not want to talk about it because the topic is not ‘politically correct.’ But we cannot be silent any longer.”
Raymond Card. Burke
He is correct. I need to blog more. Maybe nobody will read what I write, but I don’t think it is so much my job to worry about that, but to do what I am led to be doing.
Dear Lord, please grant us each the graces to do what we are meant to be doing. Please help those who are confused to open to Your grace and offer their work to you. +Amen.
