More reflections on Good Friday

“To be connected with the Catholic Church is to be associated with scoundrels, warmongers, fakes, gluttons, hateful, gossips, child-molesters, murderers, prostitutes, publicans, double-minded, slothful, adulterers and hypocrites of every description.

It also, at the same time, identifies you with the greatest saints and the finest persons of heroic soul of every time, era, country, race, and gender. Men and women who surrendered their will to God’s will, who willingly without shame stood in place of the weak and those who without regard to self laid down their lives for even those who hated them, and all this for the love of Jesus and for glory unto God.

To be a member of the Catholic Church is to carry the mantle of both the worst sin and the finest heroism of soul because Christ’s Church always looks exactly as it looked at the original crucifixion:

God hung among thieves.
