McGrath: You said at a recent Catholic Community Conference that your favorite word was ‘The Word, as in the word made flesh,’ and that we need to quote, ‘give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the Word.’
So, when was the Word made flesh? Was it at the Annunciation, when Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, as the Creed says, or was it at the Nativity when he was born of the Virgin Mary? And when did the Word get the right to life?”
Pelosi: Whenever it was, we bow our heads when we talk about it in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that.
McGrath followed up with a written question:
… We’d like to clarify the speaker’s position on this: Did Jesus have the right to life from the moment of conception?
The Speaker’s office’s emailed response?
The speaker answered the question. Thanks.
May our confessions of our Lord, as His disciples, be very different from Pelosi’s in some very key ways:
1. May we boldly speak his name when we confess our faith in Him (Acts 8: 37).
2. May our confessions be the mouth’s response to the heart’s submissive, obedient faith (Romans 10:10; Matthew 15:8).
3. May we be willing to talk about His Will anywhere, anytime…not just when we “bow our heads in church” (Matthew 10:32).
4. May our confessions be reflected in all of our decisions, both in public policy and in every private affair (Colossians 3:17).
In short, may my talk be clear…spoken without shame, and may it accurately reflect my walk with the Lord, Jesus.
