Cardinal Wuerl on Catholic schools and King's dream

A really nice piece, here, by Cardinal Wuerl, on the occasion of the anniversary of King's March on Washington.  (How sad that this wonderful anniversary was exploited for abortion-rights purposes by some!).  A bit:

Our faith can never be relegated to just an hour inside church on Sunday. As Pope Francis has urged us, we need to "go out" and bring Christ's love and hope to our communities and our world. That is why Catholic Charities programs and Catholic hospitals continue to bring Christ's love and hope to those who need it regardless of race, religion, gender, nationality or sexual orientation. That is why we must continue to stand for the dignity of human life, for religious freedom and for justice for immigrants. Our pope's new encyclical, Lumen Fidei, reminds us that faith is the light that should guide our lives. It certainly did so for King

All the more troubling because MLK was anti-abortion:

A good piece, indeed. Glad to see the NCR publish it.

In related news, the Feds have sued Louisiana to block the implementation of the state's voucher program in areas under desegregation orders:

Let us not forget that this day was exploited by those who want to invalidate the validity of a valid marriage as well.

"And faith unfaithful left him falsely true."
