Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio encouraged six Supreme Court justices to allow God to inspire their pursuit of justice and to be a part of the New Evangelization.
"We speak so often of the new evangelization, because we recognize that we must be its instruments in all that we do," Archbishop Broglio said at the 60th annual Red Mass in Washington, D.C.
The Sept. 30 Mass, which came one day before the start of the Supreme Court's fall session, brought Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Stephen Breyer, Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Clarence Thomas, Justice Anthony Kennedy and Justice Elena Kagan to the Cathedral of St. Matthew.
Archbishop Broglio, who leads the Archdiocese for the United States Military Services, explained in his homily that "justice looks only to truth" and for that reason, everyone in the cathedral was gathered "primarily to pray for you … as you execute the daunting task assigned to you at various levels."
