We Catholics are who we are and do what we do because we follow Jesus. That’s the message New York’s Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan delivers in a Holy Week message sponsored by Catholic Voices USA. Airing on 101WINS during “drive times” throughout this week, the cardinal archbishop of New York explains that “All Catholic social teaching comes from the words Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount.”
During the one-minute radio ad, Cardinal Dolan repeats some of those words -- the Beatitudes, including:
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Blest are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.
