Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki

In my column in the May 5 issue of the Catholic Times, in the wake of the terrorist bombing at Boston Marathon in April, I wrote, "Identifying radical Islamist jihadism as the motivation for so much brutal terrorism will undoubtedly bring outcries from those who will complain that this unfairly labels all Muslims, but those energies would be better spent if peaceful Muslims would very vocally disavow the radical Islamist jihadists and publicly denounce their violent version of Islam. Perhaps then we could have a real conversation about how people of all religious faiths could live together peacefully in a pluralistic world."
