Arming up for the culture war

Fr. Z has an excellent post centered around an equally excellent article  by the Administrator of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Most Rev. Robert J. Herman.  Sadly it has become rather rare to see a figure in the Church as prominent as Bishop Herman make as bold, direct and honest a statement as the one here.  Put bluntly, there is a war going on – a war of culture – and we as Catholics need to pick up the armor of Christ provided us through the Church and get involved.

Fr. Z extends Bishop Herman’s call with the reminder that the liturgy is the source and summit of our lives as Catholics, and that without a strong liturgical life a strong presence in the world becomes all but impossible.  Lex orandi, lex credendi strikes again.  When we once again focus on the God above us we come to see the people around us in a whole new light – the light of Christ who shed His Blood to save each and every one of us, even those who now stand in the way of a Culture of Life.  Let us bring our prayers before Him and bring His Answer out into the world!
