WASHINGTON - Since the release of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Congress has been taking up legislative proposals that are harmful to the common good.

THE PRIEST
is one to whom people come
at those junctions of life
when they come face to face with the unsolvable.
those moments
when they meet with the limits of creaturely power,
when they experience darkness
or have intimations of mortality.
AT SUCH MOMENTS
people have need to draw near to one who,
while able like other men and women
to swim in the waters of life
and stay afloat in them,
is not averse to drowning graciously in them,
able to be overcome.
PEOPLE need one who has entered deeply into
the paschal mystery of Jesus,
REJOICING IN LIFE BUT AT EASE WITH DEATH
(Msgr. James O’Reilly, 1977)

Our response to this historic moment must be personal and faithful.

At different moments the disciples of Jesus were not always sure of where their journey would lead them. As Jesus approached his own sorrowful passion and death, the disciples were seized with fear and dread. To all the questions and worries, the Lord responded, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (Jn. 14.6) The response of Jesus was personal and faithful. He offered himself to the disciples as a faithful shepherd and companion who would not abandon his friends. He sacrificed himself for them.
