For Love of Country:  A Catholic Patriotism

Excerpt from an article by Jared Staudt

“I have found myself drawn towards greater patriotism. By this, I simply mean a deeper appreciation of what I’ve been given by my country and also a growing realization of the duty I have to work for the common good, here and now. The Catechism of the Catholic Church speaks of this duty under the fourth commandment that enjoins honor not only to parents but also to anyone in authority…

“It is the duty of citizens to contribute along with the civil authorities to the good of society in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity, and freedom. The love and service of one’s country follow from the duty of gratitude and belong to the order of charity. Submission to legitimate authorities and service of the common good require citizens to fulfill their roles in the life of the political community” (2239). 

…(There is) something called the Golden Triangle, an idea…which ultimately comes from the Founding Fathers. “The Golden Triangle of Freedom is, when reduced to its most basic form, that freedom requires virtue; virtue requires faith; and faith requires freedom. The three go round and round, supporting one another ad infinitum. If any one of the three legs of the triangle is removed, the whole structure ceases to exist” (54). John Adams, for example, related very clearly, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”

 “Son, be of good cheer! Your sins are forgiven!” The faith of the friends of the paralytic brought healing and forgiveness. All of us can do the same in our own lives. Priests, deacons, monks and nuns are especially called to do this in the Church for the life of the world. If this may be something God is calling you to consider, contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
