John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

(R) Wis. House Speaker Ryan explains decision to dismiss House chaplain

Recommended Posts

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told the House Republican Conference Friday morning that he fired Chaplain Patrick Conroy because members felt like their “pastoral needs” were not being met and not for a political reason, according to several Republicans inside the room.

 

Ryan told members his decision to ask Conroy to step aside had nothing to do with politics, a policy conflict or a prayer.

 

 

 

A number of lawmakers had approached Ryan and told him they needed someone in the chaplain’s role who could offer more “spiritual counseling,” according to Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), who attended the meeting.

 

 

 

Ryan agreed, he told the members.

 

Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) also told The Hill that Ryan insisted during the private meeting that the dismissal was not done for any politician reasons, but because it was just “time for a change.” [Full Article 4/27 The Hill ]

 

 

I wonder if this has happened before in the history of the office of Chaplain? And who will replace Patrick Conroy.

 

Excerpted from The Hill article:

"Suspicions among Catholic Democrats that Conroy's Catholicism played a role were bolstered Thursday night, when Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), a Southern Baptist Minister who heads the Republican Study Committee, promoted the notion that Conroy's replacement should have a family — a stipulation that would eliminate Catholic priests and nuns.

 

“I’m looking for somebody who has a little age, that has adult children, that kind of can connect with the bulk of the body here, Republicans and Democrats who are going through, back home the wife, the family," said Walker, who is heading the search committee charged with finding Conroy's replacement."
