We Were Robbed of
Sacredness & Innocence
How did the Catholic Church lose its vision of truth and beauty? Who were the culprits behind this robbery? And what can we do to restore the sacred in our world? These are the questions that Elizabeth Yore tackles in this lesson, with passion and insight. She shows us how to be faithful Catholics who engage in the public sphere and influence public policy for the good of all.
INDIVIDUAL & SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
- The fact that there are weeds among the wheat; how does that impact your pursuit of the sacred?
- The world’s version of mercy, justice, and compassion is fake. How can we Catholics demonstrate to their world the witness of mercy, justice, and compassion?
- How do you engage in the sector of public policy to help it recover the sense of the sacred?
