  • Unity Walk, prayer service uplifts Christian community

    More than 1,000 faithful from multiple Christian denominations gathered Aug. 15 in downtown Oklahoma City for the first-ever Unity Prayer Service and Walk. The event provided an uplifting opportunity to pray, sing and praise Jesus in response to a satanic ritual performed in the city and against violence and hatred around the world.

    Rev. William Novak, vicar general for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, welcomed the crowd.

    “I stand here tonight with leaders and representatives from many Christian denominations and faiths. We are all brothers and sisters unified in peace and in prayer. As we stand here in this particular place, we are reminded what evil has done to our city and the lives it has destroyed, but we are also aware of the good that rests in every human heart; good that overcomes evil; that seeks healing and community and peace. We ask God to dispel all darkness and evil of every kind from our city, our nation and our world.”

Election Day is approaching: what are we to do?

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley       October 2, 2016

In little more than a month, American citizens will be going to the polls to elect local, state and national leaders, and to weigh in on many questions that will help shape our society for years to come. The right to vote is a precious thing. It is a privilege that we never can take for granted. Even more than a privilege, however, voting is a moral responsibility for those who are eligible to vote.

Admittedly, like many other people, I am more than ready for the campaign season and Election Day to be behind us. It has been deeply disturbing. The quality of candidates that we voters have to choose from for certain offices is far less than we might have hoped and certainly far from consistent with many of the historic values and aspirations of this great nation. For Catholics who take seriously their public responsibilities and seek to integrate their deeply held religious beliefs with their civic duties, we are faced with a more difficult discernment than in any election in recent memory. At the top of each ticket, we are faced with deeply flawed candidates. (That shouldn’t come as a great surprise, however, since all of us are flawed and sinful human beings.) Some Catholics who I have spoken with are so disheartened by our choice of candidates for president that they are considering staying home on Election Day.
