Recommendation: World Mag: The Catholic Moment

Perhaps as an Evangelical, you've been wondering what to make of the Pope's passing and all the media coverage surrounding it? Because we've been busy with other things, we haven't talked a lot about this as a church, but I've sure been thinking a lot about it. Gene Edward Veith has some insightful thoughts in a recent World Mag editorial, The Catholic Moment.

Here's the final paragraph, but I recommend the whole article. . . .

Evangelicals should take advantage of Christianity's current visibility in the public square. They can learn that moral absolutes are persuasive when presented in a spirit of love and that recovering Christian spirituality, not modernizing the faith, is the way to cultural relevance. But none of it will matter without the proclamation of the gospel.
