A Catholic’s Letter to Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Biden

June 14th, 2013 No comments

Dear Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Biden,

Mr. Biden, I believe that you have an obligation as a Catholic to uphold the teachings. Nowhere in the Catechism of the Catholic Church does it say you may leave your faith beliefs on the doorstep when it comes to your political life. As a matter of fact, a man in your position who has a voice that most of us don't have has a serious obligation to put God first and proclaim the truth in all your public practices. You say you are familiar with Catholic Social teaching. Hogwash!

Ms. Pelosi, You call yourself a 'respectful' Catholic, but you can't seem to respect the dignity of the human being from the moment of conception and dare to make the ridiculous statement that abortion is about reproductive health and is not a political matter. Again, hogwash! You also can't answer a reporter's simple question on what the difference is between Gosnell snipping the spine of a 24 week old baby who has just been born and a 22 week old baby inside of the womb. The Catholic Church says that life is sacred from the moment of conception.  Read more...

There is no such thing as Equality when it comes to Gay Marriage

April 12th, 2013 No comments

“For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the Church, because we are members of his body. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the church. “

Saint Paul – Ephesians 5:31-33

Saint Paul’s message to the Ephesians couldn’t possibly make it more obvious that marriage is between a heterosexual man and a woman. This is only one small example in many from our holy bible to illustrate this fact. Is it even remotely possible for one to believe in any small part of the bible and conclude that homosexual marriage is desirable and acceptable to God? How did something that is so disordered become popular and desirable among the heterosexual population? Gay relationships have not only become acceptable, but embraced to the point that they are now an applauded, cause for festive celebration in most of America and Europe. Turn on the news; look on Facebook; read your local newspaper and your senses will be flooded with celebrations of homosexual relationships.  Prominent companies like Starbucks, for example, proudly own up to their dear love for gay relationships. As a human race, what exactly are the prizes, rewards and victories that we are applauding and celebrating?  Today, American’s infatuation with gay relationships is second to none. Why is this?  Is it because the traditional family, created from the fruitful love between a faithful man and woman is no longer deemed necessary? Have we discovered a new and better way to procreate and build the loving structure and back-bone of what used to be the foundation and building blocks of a free and compassionate society?  How have we been fooled into thinking that our roots of freedom and selfless love must somehow be tied into accepting, endorsing and promoting gravely, disordered sexual relationships?

31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall be two in one flesh.
32This is a great sacrament; but I speak in Christ and in the church.
33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular love his wife as himself: and let the wife fear her husband.

Saint Peter, the Movie

st-peterSt. Peter, Starring Omar Sharif, is not only a great movie, but one that happens to be very, very Catholic. As the story unfolds, the illustration between sacred, Catholic tradition and scripture is captured in subtle, yet extremely powerful and theologically, accurate revelations that bring forth the fullness of truth in our living, Catholic Church. The Catholic message is undeniable to anyone who reads and accepts the bible as the word of God. While not all denominations would agree 100% on St. Peter's role in Christ's Church as the very first Pope, no Christian believer could possibly deny his proper history and place in the bible. And I cannot imagine that anyone watching this film that knows their bible would not think very highly and fondly of St. Peter. While watching this great film, I found myself thinking how difficult it must be for non-Catholics to dismiss the infallible role of our first Pope, Saint Peter. Read more...
