The Ninety-Nine and the One

This column by Fr. Ron Rolheiser appeared in our Catholic Herald. He gets letters, and takes up a particular criticism.
So why do I write the way I do? Why, as my critics put it, "the invariable bent toward the secular"?

My answer: Because I am trying to be a missionary and missionaries have been asked, by Jesus himself, to leave the ninety-nine and go after the one.

Yet his web site says his column
appears in more than 65 Catholic newspapers worldwide, reaching a million and a half readers each week.
