Mea Maxima Culpa

By virtue of our baptism and the “Commissioning of the Disciples” at the conclusion of the Gospel of Matthew we are called to be missionaries. To be missionaries with integrity, we must recognize and repent of our own wickedness as we join together to work against the tide of systemic evil in our own nation and throughout the world. Without that integrity, we build our foundation on shifting sand.

“The modern world, which denies personal guilt and admits only social crimes, which has no place for personal repentance but only public reforms, has divorced Christ from His Cross; the Bridegroom and Bride have been pulled apart. What God hath joined together, men have torn asunder. As a result, to the left is the Cross; to the right is Christ. Each has awaited new partners who will pick them up in a kind of second and adulterous union. Communism comes along and picks up the meaningless Cross; Western post-Christian civilization chooses the unscarred Christ.”
-Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Life of Christ)
