With most every Catholic worried at minimum about the imperial presidency (At last, I might say, for our conservative sisters and brothers.) I sure hope we have few imitators of Deacon Greg’s planned homily for the coming weekend. I haven’t really cared much for our last five presidents and their handling of the executive office. And sure, there’s a lot to say about something that hasn’t happened yet. Another discouraging word after the Gospel isn’t something I’m particularly interested in surviving. And many of you, too, maybe. I think the matter has become way too political, and the intent of many critics and even the few defenders may easily be doubted.
My parish is devoting bulletin coverage to HHS. Hopefully, y’all get a spiritual and challenging message for this weekend. Lent is less than three weeks away. Time to get ready for something important.
