How do we rebuild, renew and restore the Christian culture?
Last night, Matthew Leonard, author, podcaster, filmmaker, and Vice President of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, was keynote speaker at the Fr. Mac Scholarship Dinner in East Lansing, an annual fundraiser for education and scholarships. He gave some practical tips to those gathered on how to live boldly in order to restore the Christian culture.
“Today, we have a need to beg God assiduously for saints,” he said, quoting Saint Pope John Paul II. “The majority of the world is being led on a path of destruction. We tend to blend in. Instead, we need to lead a saintly life, not blending in, being in the world, but not of the world.” He pointed to Thomas More, a 16th Century English lawyer and statesman under King Henry VIII, as a role model who was firmly rooted in the world, but who lived a higher, holier standard than everyone else around him. More was beheaded for refusing to support the King’s divorce from his wife, Anne Boleyn, and for failing to acknowledge the King as head of the Church of England.
