Quote of the Day (Cardinal Joseph Tobin, on ‘The Chasm Between Faith and Life’)

"If we permit the chasm between faith and life to continue to expand, we risk losing Christ, reducing him simply to an interesting idea of a comforting, nostalgic memory. And if we lose Christ, the world has lost the salt, light and leaven that could have transformed it.”— Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, at his installation as Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Newark, quoted in Beth Griffin, “Cardinal Tobin Looks to Bridge Chasm Between Faith, Life in Anxious World,” Catholic News Service, Jan. 6, 2017
