Our Catholic Mission

Memorial of Ss. Cosmas and Damian
We're on a mission from God.

-- John Belushi as Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers
Last week, in a conference address to Legatus, an organization of Catholic business leaders, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver threw down a challenge to reclaim the Catholic Mission. Here is but one truffle quote:
To be a Catholic is to be very unique among the world’s believers. To be a Catholic means believing that you are a part of a vast historical project. And it’s not our project. It’s God’s. Being Catholic means believing that since the beginning of time God has been working out his own hidden purposes in the history of nations and in the biography of every person. He’s still unfolding his purposes today, and each of us has a part to play in his divine plan.

He chose us before the foundation of the world, to be holy. In love, he destined us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ.
(HHT: Catholic Report)
