Text of Bishop Paprocki's Red Mass Homily

28 Aug 2013 9:19 AM | Bennett Rawicki (Administrator)
You can read Bishop Paprocki's homily here.

He preached about St. Thomas More's famous last words - "I am the King's good servant, but God's first" - being a model of how we should act. We should be engaged in the world while keeping our eyes fixed on heaven. Bishop Paprocki voiced that the three core issues needing the faithful's continued engagement are life, marriage, and religious liberty. He warned that the sin of acedia (a form of spiritual apathy) is the biggest obstacle to our engaging society on these issues. Friendship with God overcomes acedia, which is the absence or rejection of that friendship.
