Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Telling The Truth When We Pray

The Protestant reformer Martin Luther once said “Don’t lie when you pray.” His words may be more legend than real, but their content still rings very true. And they’re good to remember as we prepare for next week’s holiday (January 18) honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King taught us to be honest about our faith and the convictions that should flow from it.

Columna del Arzobispo Chaput: Digamos la Verdad al Orar

Y son buenas para recordar mientras nos preparamos para el día feriado de la semana que viene (enero 18) en honor de Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King nos enseñó a ser honestos acerca de nuestra fe y las convicciones que deben derivarse de ella. Tomó la Escritura en serio -especialmente sus pasajes sobre el perdón, el amor y la justicia- y actuó en ellos, negándose a tener en cuenta el costo.
