“In the event of an emergency, please contact a Catholic.”

15 Mar

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales is distributing one million cards (pictured above) in order to cultivate evangelization among Catholics. They are “credit card” size, and are intended to be carried in purse or in pocket. When the person carrying it sees the card,  it is a reminder. In the event of an emergency, when someone else sees it, it is a request.

The pastor of St. Andrew, Milford (yours truly) has it in his mind that all parishioners at St. Andrew will eventually get something similar. It is one of those good ideas that gets tucked away to be used at a later time, when the time seems right – and ripe.

My card will be especially designed, with a slight change of words, to read: “I am a Catholic priest. In the event of an emergency, please contact a Catholic.”
