A Religious Response to the Colorado Killings | Crisis Magazine
The portal "New Advent" has listed the above posting as "what America's pastors should have said."
A Monday morning homilist, perhaps; but Father Orsi quite likely mentioned these things on Sunday. My earlier posting, "Mors et Vita Duello Conflixere Mirando," was basically what I said.
Whenever and however we hear those things, they are worth hearing: the reality of sin, the reality of the Resurrection as the Last and Only Word to suffering and death, the need for constant spiritual vigilance, the inadequacy of generic faith in human/American goodness, the reality of the demonic, the need to pray for the dead.
It should get that basic, I suppose. Rhetoric is rhisky if that's as far as it goes.
