My interview in Cross Roads for the Diocese of Lexington

This was fun! I had a short interview with Don Clemmer for Cross Roads, a publication of the Diocese of Lexington. An excerpt:

Cross Roads: What have you learned about the Church over the course of your journey?

Simcha Fisher: That it was founded by God, but it is most certainly made up of human beings. That the gates of hell will not prevail against it, but prevailing feels scary a lot of the time. That you can talk all day long about the Church, the Church, the Church and never once think about Jesus, or talk to him, or look at him. …

If you want to find Jesus, look at a cross. He’s not on the right or on the left. He’s in the center, bleeding. Being Catholic means admitting how we hurt the Body of Christ, and choosing to suffer with him.

  1. “Now I mainly think people need to settle down about the role of women in the Church and just focus on being human. Avoiding sin, pursuing virtue, that sort of thing. ”

    Thank you for this!!!

  2. Was there a typo?

    “If you spend your life talking about spiritual things but you spend at least some of your time giving up your body — and your time, and your energy, and your vanity, and your sleep, and your bodily strength — serving the people that God has put in front of you, then I just don’t know what you’re doing.”

    Should it be “but you *don’t* spend at least some of your time”?
