Father Spitzer tackles the difficult questions we face regarding fading morality in our society. This timeless address takes place in the fall of 2013 in New Haven, Connecticut at the Knights of Columbus National College Council Meeting. Hear responses to questions like:
"Why should the church impose its morals on me? I don't need anyone telling me how to be moral".
Father Spitzer gives us 5 points to help re-evangelize the culture.
The prayer I've probably spoke about most frequently is: "Thy will be done." I've found that this prayer brings God's peace and calm and enables us to move beyond attachments and far by letting go into God's providential hands.
His peace and calm are essential to the freedom to see myself as I really am. I don't have to be the Messiah, I don't have to be the greatest, I don't have to be an ultimate, and I don't have to make other people think that I am, because God is at the center of my universe, and God is taking care of what I cannot do for myself. When people confront me and ask, "Spitzer, how worthy are you?" I can simply respond, "As worthy as God wants me to be, and I suppose that's enough." I don't have to worry about being more worthy. I certainly don't have to worry about being most worthy.
