Cardinal Wuerl at the Inauguration

I was just reading a posting on the Get Religion blog regarding the press coverage of the religious aspects of the recent presidential inauguration, which includes the fact that Cardinal Wuerl read Matthew 6:25-34 at an interfaith ceremony at St. John's Episcopal Church.  Terry Mattingly doesn't follow it up, but he does comment, "Now that’s a rather interesting piece of Gospel material there."  Indeed.  Since the cardinal did not preach at this service, I'm not sure why he chose this passage, but at any rate the last sentence it contains is, "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

For many people, myself included, that suits the the whole inauguration to a T.
