The Role of the Church in Society

Anna Williams writes an amazingly wonderful article which appears in the Tucson Citizen about the positive role of the Catholic Church in society.  While it seems that many people believe that taking care of the poor is someone else’s responsibility, Ms. Williams says that there is one group of people who  strive “to live out St. Paul’s ‘more excellent way’ of love. They don’t argue about poverty; they try to alleviate it.” This group of people are Catholic religious and priests whose “primary inspiration for both living in poverty and serving the poor is, of course, Jesus Christ.”

Well worth a read.
