“Join in imitating me, and take note of those who conduct themselves in accord with the model you have in us” – Philippians 3:17.
Reflection: The US bishops have said Catholic institutions should not “give awards, honors, or platforms to those who act contrary to church teaching on fundamental moral principles.” Abortion is violence. Honoring supporters of child-killing not only contradicts Church teaching; it contradicts American ideals and basic human decency.
Prayer: Lord, as we strive to follow you, continue to give us good examples of fidelity, not only in the saints, but in the leaders you give us today. Amen!
