"And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim."

  • Humanity urgently needs the Gospel, Pope says for World Mission Day 2017 (CNA, 6/4/17)
  • Lasting marriages are possible when you stop chasing happiness (Aletia, 6/4/17)
  • "To the world’s culture of death ideology, the Church responds by saying, essentially:
  • You are body and soul.
  • Sex is beautiful and awesome and so meaningful. You are made for love and to be loved, not to be used by someone or to use another. Your body was designed to be a gift to another. God made fertility for a reason; it doesn’t need to be suppressed. Of course sex needs to be consensual – in fact, it needs to be way more than that.
  • Abortion and contraception aren’t necessary for a sexually active society. But they certainly help make society miserable.
  • Turning in on oneself closes us off from God. You don’t need pornography to be happy.
  • Your ears are for hearing. Your feet are for walking. Your body is designed the way it was for a reason.
  • Freedom means the capacity and ability to choose what is good and right.
"Coming to understand this 'seamless garment' is a process. Many people begin this when they experience horror at the injustice of abortion, and then gradually come to agree with Church teaching on other issues. Anti-abortion beliefs are a gateway that can lead to chastity, greater respect for self and others, and authentic human freedom.
"With God’s grace, may we realize that the Church teaches what it teaches because it’s true, and because it wants what’s best for humanity, and that the culture of death teaches lies because it wants the worst for humanity" (LifeSiteNews, 6/2/17).
  •  USCCB Chairman Encourages Broadening of Exemption from HHS Mandate (USCCB, 6/1/17)
  • Interview of Gerhard Cardinal Müller, Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (World Over, 5/25/17)
  • Planned Parenthood: A Vile Rot (American Life League, 5/26/17)
    "....the current proposed budget from President Trump’s staff bars all Planned Parenthood funding across the span of federal programs. We can only hope that this ban remains after the politicians get involved....nearly all birth control pills can kill babies before they have had a chance to implant in their mother’s womb....We must work hard to educate our fellow Americans, to tell the truth everywhere and anywhere, and to push elected officials to be honest and to stop subsidizing the murder of innocent children with our tax dollars...."
  • Letter to Congress on Regarding [sic] the Federal Budget (USCCB, 5/22/17)

PETITION TO HHS SECRETARY TOM PRICE
Protect your tax dollars from going to Planned Parenthood abortionists!

March for Marriage
"The Church understands marriage as a unique relationship, with a unique definition. It’s a faithful covenant between one man and one woman for life. By its very nature, marriage is ordered not only to companionship and mutual support, but also – and even more fundamentally – to the procreation and education of children. This is why every child deserves a family where the father loves the mother, and the mother loves the father. For anyone to attempt to redefine marriage or
the family as something else undermines that goal. Thus it’s vital that the Church keep working to defend the integrity of marriage.  For this reason, I support the Marriage March that will take place in Washington, D.C., on June 17, 2017. For more information, please contact the Office for Life and
Family [link added] or visit https://www.marriagemarch.org/
Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

Archbishop of Philadelphia"
