"It's easy to get the impression these days that the main thing the Catholic Church is concerned about is getting people vaccinated or climate change or the Amazon, things like that," said Ralph Martin, president of Renewal Ministries. "Quite honestly, the primary mission of the Church isn't to save the Amazon, it's to save people from hell. It's to boldly proclaim Jesus Christ as the Savior of the whole world."
Martin, a professor of theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, is the author of books, including "A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward" (Emmaus Road Publishing). He recently posted a video commentary, "A Startling Warning from a Surprising Source," regarding remarks from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
