Cardinal Wuerl Launches a Blog

“Seek First the Kingdom” to address Catholic faith, what it teaches and why the Catholic faith is relevant and important in daily life

February 26, 2012

Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, has launched a blog, “Seek First the Kingdom,” ( Known nationally for his catechetical and teaching ministry, Cardinal Wuerl in his first entry said his plan for the blog was to take the teaching of the Catholic Church and “to share why it is that our Catholic faith brings so much to the world around us, why we are all empowered to begin to manifest the kingdom of God and what we can do to make sure that things don’t become one great mess.” He continued, “My hope is that in this digital world we will have an opportunity, as Pope Benedict XVI once said, ‘to meet each other beyond the confines of space’ in a way that we might create ’an entirely new world of potential friendships.’”

The Archdiocese of Washington is home to over 600,000 Catholics, 140 parishes and 98 Catholic schools, located in Washington, DC, and five Maryland counties: Calvert, Charles, Montgomery, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s.
