Post Catholic Witness in a Nation Divided (Build the Church, Bless the Nation)

“Our problem isn’t in Washington; it’s in our parishes. Only if we first build the Church can we, will we, bless the nation.”
–Al Kresta

Al Kresta, host of the popular “Kresta in the Afternoon” broadcast on Catholic radio and President and CEO of Ave Maria Communications, is talking about the Catholic vote in the 2012 election. In November, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, forty percent of Mass-attending Catholics voted for President Obama, a self-identified champion of two intrinsic evils: (1) abortion, including partial-birth abortion; and (2) the redefinition of marriage.


Most elections don’t permit such black and white assessments. In this case, however, Bishop Thomas Paprocki, bishop of Springfield in Illinois, concluded in a column in the Catholic Times on September 23, 2012:

Catholic Witness in a Nation Divided (Build the Church, Bless the Nation)
__________________
The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.


- Fr. Gregory Jensen

It's hard to believe that this article stooped to quoting Bishop Thomas Paprocki, whose fire and brimstone electioneering were almost universally condemned by Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
