A GOOD READ ABOUT AN AMERICAN HERO!
on June 26, 2013
Fr. Michael Pfleger is a constant in an inconstant circumstance - American society. This is a priest that is all that a Pastor should be and a whole lot more. His Christianity has "Christ" in it - and his actions speak volumes (and so do his spoken words). Nevertheless he has been harassed by his Diocese's leadership and even given an involuntary "leave". Chicago's South Side is more livable because of his presence.
I am an agnostic whose husband once told me I was the "best Christian" he knew based on how I live my life. But, believe me, I am extremely humbled by Fr. Pfleger - he is a giant in a world that needs more "Christianity" (persons who live their life in the ways taught by the Christ). He is a hero in a world that needs more heroes - and which also needs to realize that a hero is not a person who can earn millions of dollars because they happen to be good at a sport, etc., but rather a person who truly loves his fellow persons and strives to make the "equality" our country was supposedly founded on true equallty! If you don't know who Fr. Pfleger is, but have any interest in race relations, and in seeing that the generations following us are better than ours (and his), then this is a must read.
