Compassion means to “suffer with” and to accompany someone through a difficult period of life.
This Sunday, Cardinal Seán is taking the unusual step of asking every parish in the Archdiocese of Boston to play a video or audio of a special homily he’s written to talk about the attempt to legalize physician-assisted suicide in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on the November 6 ballot.
Scot Landry, Fr. Mark O’Connell, Fr. Chip Hines and the listeners of The Good Catholic Life get an exclusive advance look at the homily and our panel discusses the Cardinal’s appeal to the moral law, the good of society, love of the most vulnerable, and our Christian duty to be a family of faith for those in need.
