About this Episode
What does it mean to say that the Church is holy, when we look around and see so much unholiness? Unlike human institutions, the Church is made worthy not by her leaders but by her Head: Jesus Christ. When we profess that the Church is holy, we don’t mean that all her members are perfect—the Church is holy because she is our means of entering into the family of God.
In times when we look around and don’t see much good in the Church, there are always signs of holiness to encourage us to press on. Read the incredible reflections of Fr. Arne Panula in The Last Homily, edited by Mary Eberstadt.
