Archbishop Charles Chaput OFM Cap. of Denver delivered his latest major address at Houston Baptist University.
The Bishops of the Church in union with the Pope have a mandate from Jesus Christ and the Church to teach, govern and sanctify. They are not politicians. They don't stick their finger in the air to test which way the wind is blowing in order to please their constituents. They are to be prophetic and call the people of God to truth, love, service, repentance and reconciliation. They may become martyrs for this. Praise God for bishops that understanding their high calling and pray for them all!
