      Yes, the Church accepts money because the Church needs money to keep its operations going. But consider another institution that needs and accepts money: a school. What would we say about a school that said, “Kids don’t like math, so let’s just stop offering math”? Don’t we assume the school has a responsibility to teach its students things they might not “like”? Perhaps, then, we should admit the Church has an analogous responsibility: to teach and to do what is in the best interests of her members, even if they don’t always “like” it – and even if it doesn’t always make her “popular.”

      It’s clear to me that faithful Catholics can expect no assistance, or at best little and tentative assistance, from the institutional Church as we try to reform old schools, establish new schools, reintegrate good to great art and music (across cultural and folk traditions) into our worship, help to resuscitate or recreate some of the many genres of the arts and crafts that have been lost, reform or found institutions of social welfare, revive a genuinely Catholic and Christian intellectual tradition across the disciplines, and – most important when it comes to the laity and what they are directly responsible for – preach and embody the virtues that make for coherent and vibrant family life.

      Performative Catholicism has become the norm today, and the Rosary is the primary tool in the performance. President Joe Biden loves to show off his rosary, such as during a virtual conversation with Mexico’s President Lopez Obrador. Claiming his devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe—despite the fact that President Biden has promoted the most extreme pro-abortion policies in history—Biden told Obrador that he had visited Mexico four times as vice president and during his visits he “paid his respects to the Virgin of Guadalupe.”

      The principle of dogma is set in contrast, first of all, to human creativity: “flesh and blood has not revealed this to you.” The Church’s faith is received from God, not manufactured by man. It is not a collection of merely human ideas. Nor does our knowledge of God come from our own cleverness or insight. Our faith comes from Christ’s heavenly Father. He has spoken His Word into the world in such a manner that we can not only receive it but also hand it on. But our fallen human nature doesn’t want to receive anything. That would indicate a lack of freedom. We prefer to imitate Eve and grasp. We are so enslaved to our autonomy that we reject even the given/received nature of our own bodies and choose to self-identify as something else.

      What is The Catholic Way in this time of Church-wide crucifixion? It will vary, but here are some thoughts: An intensified prayer life; at least one hour each day. Living out our vocational call to holiness through daily sacrifice. More frequent reception of the Eucharist and visits to the Adoration chapel. Increased service to the poor and corporal works of mercy. Deepening our devotion to Mary. More frequent confessions. Increased time with Scripture and spiritual reading.

  • 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.
