The Church is foundationally a missionary society. We are all called to go on mission.
We confront the sins of the Church openly because it is only when we admit our weakness that we become strong.
A people is defined by our common loves. As Americans, we must be united by our love of God, and as Catholics, united by our love for Jesus, the sacraments, and the Scriptures.
I came to the Church because she was wise, and to Jesus because of the Church.
