      But the key word in that sentence is faithful. Claiming to be Catholic while obediently conforming our lives to a culture that disdains God’s Word and violates our faith is simply a convenient way of lying to ourselves and everyone else. It’s a useful anesthetic for the conscience.

      If you haven't figured out that this gay porn library book issue isn't an issue of good versus evil then you haven't been paying attention. Allowing third graders or middle schoolers to be exposed to this porn in class or at the school library is disgusting, wrong, and wholly unnecessary unless you run a sex school, but Frisch took his oath of office on a stack of what he termed "banned" books. None of the books was banned. But they're all filled with porn.

      The current chaos in the Church is not unlike that found in the Scriptures. The remnant of the Chosen People remained faithful during the Babylonian Exile, during the repeated periods of rebellion, and the Roman occupation. Just as God guaranteed the ongoing survival of His Chosen People (cf. Hosea), Jesus promises the survival of the Church: “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the [gates of hell] shall not prevail against it.” (Mt. 16:18) And so, it must be for us. Not long ago, an elderly woman called me to her bedside. She apologized for disrupting my busy schedule. She was dying. But she said she hadn’t received Communion for weeks. She could no longer delay. I recited the prayers, delivered Jesus in Holy Communion, and left that room invigorated in spirit, with my priesthood validated. The Catholic faith isn’t complicated and comes down to one Thing: Jesus.

      How much do we care for those who are poor? Are we committed to helping these people by performing the corporal works of mercy?

  • The Essential Family

    Wisdom from Monsignor Pope

    Struggles: Yet what should be obvious seems to be strangely absent from the minds of many. Marriage and family are in crisis in our culture due to the willfully sinful habits of many adults in the areas of sexuality, marriage and family life. 

    Strategy: What are we to do? Preach the word! 

    We must be prepared to unambiguously repropose the wisdom of God’s word to our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

    Children deserve and have the right to expect two parents, a father and mother, committed to each other until death do they part.
