Hey, Charlie, you look puzzled. A little more than usual that is.

Well, I am. I heard the priest in the neighboring parish preach on marriage

Yes I believe I have heard that. I don’t know if that is part of Catholic teaching, though. I’ll tell you what. Let’s check the CCC.

It is May. The flowers are finally out. The weather is finally clearing up. And for many, the wedding season is in full swing. We pray that God will bless each of those couples as they prepare for their life-time commitment to each other. These young couples are in need of special prayers because, as we all know, the once strong, stable institution of

Can’t conceive? Pray to St. Raymond, patron of those suffering from infertility

Fr. Joseph Eddy, O. de M.

During the Christmas season our minds necessarily are turned to the birth of a poor child in a manger. There is something so human, so compelling about the Nativity scene. It is unique to our frail human condition and while at the same time so beyond imagination. God comes to us in a way which both beckons us to Him and makes us feel safe approaching the Creator of all things. This way is through a baby. Each time we see an infant we want to smile. We want to approach this human being which is so helpless and beautiful. But not all feel this way when they see a baby.

There are those women, increasing in number, who desperately want to have a child, but cannot because of infertility. Certainly this is not a new problem; the Scriptures are filled with stories of women who were “barren.” Since for the ancients, children were considered a blessing, such women were seen as cursed by God. Left to feel as if they were less than a woman or a wife. Continue Reading…

Contraception is a mortal sin. There — I’ve said it

Kimberly Hahn says contraception is a mortal sin.

Hah! What does she know!  She’s a convert.

Well, the Catholic Catechism bears her out. It says every action that makes procreation impossible is “intrinsically evil.”

That’s pretty strong language.  Intrinsically evil.  That means that there’s no way it could be good.

Right.  There’s no circumstance that could make it good.

Well then, how come we don’t hear about that from the pulpit?

That I cannot answer.  But we have to follow the Church, no matter what we hear or don’t hear from the pulpit. And there’s more. Continue Reading…

About two weeks ago I read an opinión piece by a Sun-Times columnist, Neil Steinberg, who was objecting to the Cardinal’s recent request of all the pastors that they include the cardinals letter to the people regarding the impossibility of so-called gay-marriage.
Steinberg was beside himself with rage that the Cardinal of the Catholics might think that he would have a right to try to influence legislation by asking Catholics to write to their state legislators to make their opinions about gay marriage known. How dare the Cardinal think that he might have the same rights as anyone else.

It was truly an amazing article.
