To thee do we cry...
With the autumn comes the opportunity to begin anew. The promise of crisp mornings and cool evenings invigorates a sluggish soul and even the most distantly removed from the back-to-school scene can’t help but smile at the sight of a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. Never has an infusion of newness been more appreciated than after the summer of scandal.
“What is new?” one counters.
Indeed. No crisis has been settled or solved. What is new is this day. What is new is this season. What is new is the strengthened resolve of committed Catholics to live their faith more fervently because truly, it’s costing us something. These are not easy days to be Catholic.
Many of us feel relatively powerless. We sign letters. We voice concerns. We follow the news carefully, and express bewilderment and concern when there is no news except professed silence. It seems like it matters not. What do we do? How do we inhale the newness of this season into our souls and renew our lives of faith?
If you have a few minutes, please watch the video recorded a couple weeks ago in our Instagram community.
And, as the autumn approaches, I urge you to take up your rosary. Maybe begin with us tomorrow?
