Wherever you look these days, there are causes for fear. Islamic brutality is on the march, and our brothers and sisters in the Middle East are suffering greatly. Ebola is spreading quickly, with fears it could become a global pandemic. There is conflict in the Church hierarchy leading up to the synod on the family. And much, much more.
How are to respond to these crises as faithful Catholics? In answer to that question, I want to try something new today: my very first video blog.
Please note, this video was completely spontaneous and it is about as rough and amateurish as you can get. To make matters worse, I have a cold, making me sound stuffy and nasal. But while the video quality is inferior and the messenger is weak, I hope the content of this short video will encourage you in these dark times.

The post A Call to Hope appeared first on The Catholic Gentleman.
