Catholic News Herald - Catholics urged: 'Either be hot or cold – don't be apathetic' - Catholic news from the Diocese of Charlotte

The following excerpts are from The Diocese of Charlotte's Catholic News Herald:
  • CHARLOTTE — A solemn Holy Hour concluded three days – 80 hours – of continuous Eucharistic Adoration at St. Patrick Cathedral to coincide with the Democratic National Convention Sept. 3-6. More than 100 people from Charlotte-area parishes participated in the "Vigil for Liberty," held to pray for religious freedom, protection of the right to life, and an increase in vocations.
  • Each day of the vigil, worshippers prayed the Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Holy Rosary.
  • In his Holy Hour homily, Father Christopher Roux, pastor and rector of the cathedral parish, called out Catholics who are apathetic about their faith and encouraged all of us to embrace the Cross like we really mean it.
  • "Either be hot or cold. Be one or the other. Don't be apathetic. Don't be wishy-washy," Father Roux said.
