What Georgetown and we must do

As of this writing we have not heard that Georgetown University has acted to overrule its Lecture Fund’s speaking invitation to abortion-industry magnate Cecile Richards, for which the time, date, and location were announced this past week. We hope and pray that the University will act in accordance with the instruction of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in their 2004 pastoral letter, “Catholics in Political Life“:

The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.

And whatever Georgetown decides, we of the laity have our call to action as well:

Catholics need to act in support of these principles and policies in public life. It is the particular vocation of the laity to transform the world.

With Our Lady’s Rosary in one hand and the pen of fraternal correction in the other, may the transformation begin today.
