Building a Culture of Life Series

November 5, 2008

An as-yet-unfinished series, begun during the 2008 elections:

This is the menu page for the whole Building a Culture of Life Series. With so many pieces floating around (and addendums that keep getting written inside my head – especially in the middle of the night), I figured I at least need to give it a little organization. I will probably be adding to old posts quite a bit as there seem to be additional points and clarifications worth making as I try to clarify this whole issue in my own mind.

To have Christian hope means to know about evil and yet to go to meet the future with confidence. The core of faith rests upon accepting being loved by God, and therefore to believe is to say Yes, not only to him, but to creation, to creatures, above all, to men, to try to see the image of God in each person and thereby to become a lover. That’s not easy, but the basic Yes, the conviction that God has created men, that he stands behind them, that they aren’t simply negative, gives love a reference point that enables it to ground hope on the basis of faith (Cardinal Ratzinger, Salt of the Earth).
