WILLIAMS: American revival begins with the Catholic Church – Washington Times

Let us all pray for revival…

  • tags: Catholic

    • For centuries it was known as the purveyor of truth — a corporate body of fallible men, yes, but speaking for an infallible God. Today it seems as though the institution is wandering in the wilderness; its greatest sin is that of situational ethics.

    • We stand in the midst of questionable times. Doubt creeps and lurks all around us. Like the great economic and political revivals of the 18th and 19th centuries, they also contained equally powerful spiritual revivals such as the Second Great Awakening. We need such a revival. Our very souls cry out for such an awakening. The Catholic Church should take up that mantle, but first it must get right with its Maker.

  1. I cannot believe that this can be true

  2. Do you agree with his rhetoric? I am one who would take exception to his column as “taking too many liberties” — for instance: What “this” is he talking about?; what change is he looking for?; and his initial premise of “irreparable damage” is a statement of lack of hope. Hmmm…I think his column is just bit critical and vague.

    PS…I’m not a big fan of situation ethics — so, I agree with him there. It’s a problem.

    Hi Kathy,

    I find it interesting that the Protestants are looking to the Catholic bishops and the Catholic Church itself for leadership.

    I see the morality of our nation drifting the way of Europe.

    As a Church, we must confess and repent of our sins, and Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict have XVI have led us in this example.

    The sin must be exposed and the Church must be cleansed. It is only then that the Church can take its rightful role in leading this nation and the world back to God.
