John:

Thanks for your thoughts on faith.

In Savannah, we have an organization called the Catholic Lawyers Guild, where we meet monthly to listen to speakers and talk about how to practice our faith through our work. A month ago, we had our annual Red Mass, which celebrates the start of the trial calendar and prays that the Holy Spirit will guide us in our legal endeavors. We invite all members of the Bar and Judiciary, Catholic or not. After the Mass, we present the St. Thomas More award to a Catholic attorney who has demonstrated their faith through their legal practice. I have attached the prayers of the faithful for all lawyers given at the Mass, plus the St. Thomas More prayer.

As lawyers, God puts us in a special position to utilize our faith every day to aid others. Many lawyers do not realize this. I really appreciated your thoughts.
