“We have to learn from him, from Jesus who is our only model. If you want to go forward without stumbling or wondering off the path, then all you have to do is walk the road he walked, placing your feet in his footprints and entering into his humble and patient Heart, there to drink from the wellsprings of his commandments and his love. In a word, you must identify yourself with Jesus Christ and try to become really and truly another Christ among your fellow men.” St. Josemaria Escriva, Friends of God
This week’s Volta Art Fair in New York includes an installation by Slovakian artist Robert Kunec, that critiques the “Christians” who supported the war in Iraq — suggesting they need to go to confession.
Mr. Kunec may not be a faithful Christian, but he is correct about the need for Christians (who helped to get the U.S. into Iraq) to confess/repent.
The story of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, an atheist and abortionist, who turned away from performing abortions and became a faithful Catholic — offers hope that Catholics who supported the war in Iraq might also come around to seeing their error, and seek forgiveness.
