I wrote this with the idea that part of the task of the Church and of a pastor is to look at the world and interpret things in light of the Gospel. Cardinal Montini, later Pope Paul VI, called for a second document on the Church, The Church in the Modern World, because he felt that it was important to reflect on how the Church should relate the world and the things that were happening.

A theologian said that a preacher should preach with the Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other.

Part of the idea of this blog was to be able to do those things.
