Cardinal Edwin F. O’Brien – Thoughts on Our Church

The following columns were written by Cardinal Edwin F. O’Brien and appeared in the Catholic Review.

And so, it is a courageous and beautiful exercise of our freedom of expression to proclaim to those in power and to our fellow citizens that life itself is beautiful, and that, therefore, as a nation, we need to repent of the destruction of the unborn.

As we listen to the voice of Christ and sense his presence in the Scriptures, we too can experience the power of God’s Word that propelled Jonah to preach and we too can be convinced to repent as did the residents of Nineveh.

…it is only when we remain in the Lord and with the Lord, that we truly discover how we are truly called to advance the Kingdom of God on earth, his Kingdom of justice, love, and peace.

Through our prayers, our good example and our reasoned and compassionate involvement, we need to bring our country to the Lord Jesus for forgiveness, healing and renewal.
