Meanwhile, here’s something to ponder

All of creation exists, according to Catholic teaching, for the sake of the Church, since the Church is one with its Lord and all things exist for his sake (Colossians 1:15-20). What happens if we really order our lives and our politics as though that is a statement about reality and not merely one of those abstract theological things religious people say? (Conservatives: remember “the Church” means the Body of Christ, not just the heirarchy. Liberals: remember the Church includes the Magisterial office, not just whatever a bunch of clueless AmChurch people feel is important based on what they heard on NPR this week. Everybody: remember that the “the Church” includes both the living and the dead.)
