CARDINAL MAIDA URGES TO ENCOURAGE SOCIAL JUSTICE AND DEFENSE OF LIFE

        DETROIT, 26 (NE) Cardinal Archbishop Adam Maida of Detroit, pointed out this week the need to encourage the Church's social doctrine throughout Michigan state as one of the key areas in evangelization. During the course of a Mass presided by Cardinal Maida, the Archbishop of Detroit consecrated a new Bishop for Michigan, Msgr. Leonard Blair, who will now help to serve the 1.4 million Catholics in southeast Michigan. Cardinal Maida stressed the need to fight abortion as well as assisted suicide, inviting the new Bishop to help him oppose them, and urged to "work against any shadow of racism or prejudice, thus ensuring a more just society in harmony with principles of the Catholic social-justice tradition".
