This week we have another video for Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, courtsey of Essential Dissent (see essentialdissent.blogspot.com). Bishop Gumbleton will return to his regular homily schedule with audio and transcripts posted to NCR Cafe next week.
Until then, here's a talk he gave in Endicott, N.Y. on March 8, 2008, during a series of talks for Lent with the theme "The Election and Transforming Issues." The bishop's talk is called: "The Gospel Call to Peace in a Time of War and Terrorism."
The video comes from Wilton Vought's video blog essentialdissent.blogspot.com). This is how Vought describes himself and his work: "I am a videographer living near Montrose, Pa. I videotape events of interest to the peace and justice community, and post them here. I am in the process of posting approximately 50 videos from my former Web site, so there will be quite a few posts through September and into October of 2008. Things will settle down after that."
We say: Charlottesville reveals the weeping wound of racism. What do we, the American Catholic faith community, do next? Read the editorial.
