Homily 237 – 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 20th, 2013, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

Let’s Do Something

It has been said that all that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing. When we see injustice and evil we naturally want to do something about it. Certainly that is the case this week as we mark the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade supreme court decision. All this week there will be prayer and fasting, marching in Topeka and Washington. Generations from now when abortion is relegated to the shameful past along with the holocaust of WWII, we want to be able to say that we did something. Today’s homily explores something that we might do, starting at the real root of the problem.

    Father Shawn,

    I hate to be picky, but Roe vs. Wade was January 22, 1973, 40 years ago, not 49. Bill and I were married that same year and we are coming up on our 40th Wedding Anniversary this May.

    I am glad that you are such and avid supporter of the unborn. As you go to Topeka and Washington, D.C. do add a prayer or two for all those who work in the pro-Life movement.

    Thanks, Nancy. Typo. The zero key is awfully close to the 9 🙂
