Does it Matter Where I Buy My Coffee? The Question of Cooperation with Evil

We hear the question again and again in the comments: What should I do if my favorite coffee shop, shoe company, or airline financially supports abortion? Am I cooperating with evil if I buy a product from them?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary explores this question and weighs in on why we should avoid cooperating with evil and what our uniquely Catholic response should be to the evil of abortion in our world.

For even more on Catholic Morality for everyone, be sure to read Dr. Matthew Minerd’s new book, Made by God, Made for God: Catholic Morality Explained:

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
