Archbishop Nichols: Individuals and Society (Not Families?)
Blogged by James Preece on 12th August 2011
Archbishop Vincent Nichol's on the riots...
“In the face of these difficulties, a forthright common effort is needed to ensure that these times bring out the best in our society and not the worst. I am sure that, as Catholic citizens, we shall play our part with clear principles for living, both as individuals and as a society, with honesty, compassion and prayer.”
Notice the words he uses... Catholics are "citizens", we will play our part "as individuals and as a society".
But not as families?
Isn't that how we got in to this mess in the first place?
