The Problem with Celebrity Worship

Bobby takes an honest look at our tendency to put celebrities on an idealistic pedestal, even in the Catholic world. While it is good to appreciate the blessings given to someone who has a talent or two, looking up to celebrity worship can lead to us making them replace the role that saints, or even Christ, should play in our lives. Let’s make the saints our celebrities, and imitate Christ as they did.

“Everybody counts and everybody matters”

Fr. Damien Ference, The Strangeness of Truth

“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,    for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!”
