John Wesley wrote the Catholic Spirit

With levels of Christian unity--there were different levels of affection for Christians that was dependent on how theologically people were in step with each other. He did this because he understood that we live in a world dominated by human brokenness. He never strove for a utopia right here and right now, he created space where people could live a life centered in God regardless of their circumstances. Any connection early Methodism had was about people deciding to connect themselves to John Wesley and his particular set of beliefs. And it was the lives of these particular people who were his number one priority.

"We've reached the point in the fight against coronavirus, this awful and unseen enemy, that lays bare the truth that the evangelists of self-sufficiency and libertarian excess bow before a false god. May the lesson be indelibly inscribed on the minds of the generations soon to move into positions of leadership. We need one another."    – National Catholic Reporter editorial, March 24, 2020
