It’s Washington’s Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who this week introduces his contribution to the blogosphere, “Seek First the Kingdom”:
While I have enjoyed for many years writing articles and even doing a weekly television program, this is my first venture into the world of blogs.
What I would like to do in this blog is to talk about our Catholic faith, what it teaches, why it is so important, certainly to me, and why, I hope, it would be important to you. My plan is to take some aspect of the teaching of the Catholic Church and comment briefly on it in the hope that there might be readers who would find this helpful or at least engaging. For example, as we enter the Lenten season, I would like to share with you in the future some thoughts on what this time of penance and spiritual renewal means.
The title for the blog, “Seek First the Kingdom,” comes from the challenge of Jesus to his disciples that in the midst of all the things that make up our daily life we would keep our hearts clearly focused on something that is not as visible as the creation around us, but is every bit as real – the presence of God in our lives. This presence we call the kingdom of God and it finds its expression in the things that we say and do.
Read it all. And welcome to the blogosphere, Your Eminence!
