As our Culture careens around seemingly irreconcilable poles and shrill voices surround us, it seems pretty hard to keep one’s peace. Is it just me or does Afghanistan, Iraq, student murder/suicides, so called “gay marriage,” craziness at the Border and 5 - 4 Hobby Lobby type cases make you question if this Nation - conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created… equal - can long survive? When in doubt, quote Lincoln.

It is at these times in particular that we are called to discipleship. During a recent homily, Mon. Michael McKiernan reminded us that during times like these, being polarized, angry, shrill and unforgiving of our opponents, is simply “not Catholic.”

Should we not be different in our discourse?  Unyielding in both Truth and Charity?  Simply remarkable in our courage and compassion? These are the paradoxes of Discipleship, only possible with the Grace attendant tothe Word, the Eucharist and self-surrendering service. Not up to the challenge? Me neither - on our own - but there is a certitude in the midst of this crazy world, and HE is the means and end.  PAX G
