Archbishop J. Peter Sartain of Seattle, Wash. explained at a Mass for public servants that Christ’s love is what “sets the standard for every life of humble service.”
“It is love which best manifests the presence of God in our personal and public lives,” he said.
As Christians, we must strive for “conscious participation in the sacrificial love of Christ.”
Archbishop Sartain was the homilist at the 58th annual Red Mass on Oct 2. The Mass is offered annually to ask God to bless and guide Supreme Court justices, judges, diplomats and government officials.
