what's missing from this picture?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 05, 2009

Catholic Relief Services now has available a 28-page brochure detailing the agency's relief efforts during the past calendar year. 2008 CR Highlights: The Year in Review presents a truly impressive collection of stories about humanitarian work in impoverished countries. It's wonderful work, really.

But I couldn't help but notice that in describing those fine examples of Christian charity-- in all those 28 pages-- CRS did not use any of these words:

  • Gospel
  • Jesus
  • Christ
  • Baptism
  • God

 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
