Father Jim Martin on the Colbert Report

* * *   Video Link   * * *

Fr. Martin: "When people feel more vulnerable, like in times of recession and poverty, their defenses are lowered so it is easier for God to break through."

S. Colbert: "You make God sound like an opportunistic virus."

Fr. Martin:  "It’s more that we keep God at bay. We have our defenses. When they are not there any more, it’s easier for God to break in…It’s not that God is any more present, it’s that we are more open."
