Overview

"Our sovereign God watches over history the history of nations as well as our personal history and is actively involved in its drama [and] development." Cardinal Donald Wuerl

In this signature book Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl lays out a solid foundation for understanding the roots of Catholic laity's participation in the public arena, providing the tools you need to become an insightful ambassador for the kingdom of God.

It is ironic that American Christians are at once citizens of a democracy and of a kingdom. Yet it is precisely within the context of the divine kingdom that we have the potential to be the best citizens of our nation. Preparation for undertaking this mission requires a sharpening of our spiritual senses, so that we become living signs of the kingdom of God.

The heart of Seek First the Kingdom is a masterful survey of the teachings of the Scriptures, theology, and Tradition on citizenship in the Kingdom of God. No mere metaphor, the Kingdom is real and substantial. At the same time it is a spiritual mystery: Christ promised a Kingdom but he gave the world very human disciples to announce it, not just by their words but also by their deeds.

Readers will be encouraged and emboldened to take their place as Catholics dedicated to the renewal of our nation.
