Here’s How We Decided to Join the Latin Mass Society

After three years there, I had taken on many roles. I was the assistant youth minister, a Catechist, a Eucharistic Minister, a lector, and a Eucharistic Adoration Church-closer-upper. Yet, God made it very, very clear to me and to my wife that we had to walk away.

We had been given the impression by our priests there that we were the all-star Catholics. After all, we showed up every Sunday, we tithed, and we volunteered at the parish. But my wife and I will be the first to tell you, we still needed a lot of help.

We were searching for something, any parish to help us to grow in our faith. But where would we go?

Is Your Husband Addicted to Porn?:  Let Me Suggest THIS as a Possible Solution!

Is Your Husband Addicted to Porn?: Let Me Suggest THIS as a Possible Solution!

Is your husband addicted to porn?

If so, did you ever think there could be a link to the use of birth control within your marriage?

If you use or support the use of birth control, then on what grounds do you oppose pornography usage?

Sure, using contraception may be something you and your spouse consent to, and perhaps you do not consent to your spouse viewing pornography. But why not?

If the conjugal act can have the procreative end separated from the unitive end, then what makes your spousal sex necessary, but the porn use not wanted?

How Convincing Is the Pro-Choice Claim to Bodily Autonomy in Defense of Abortion?

How Convincing Is the Pro-Choice Claim to Bodily Autonomy in Defense of Abortion?

“Who are you to say what I can or can’t do with my body?”

This remains the abortion advocates’ most common argument these days.

Their argument might seem plausible on the face of it. They say a woman who becomes unintentionally pregnant shouldn’t be forced to carry a baby against her will. The woman can exert her autonomy over her body, in place of harboring a child she didn’t want, their thinking goes.

Is it convincing? How do you respond?

Here’s my retort.

Compassion and Choices Group Celebrating Brittany Maynard: The Woman Who Intends to Kill Herself

It is true, this woman requires empathy for the cancer diagnosis she received. Back in April 2014 she was told she had six months until the doctors expected her to die to the disease.

But why does she deserve compassion for her diagnosis? Precisely because life—all life—has intrinsic value. For her to learn she is likely to die before reaching an elderly age means her life will be shorter than many others.

We should mourn her losing her life, while she maintains a desire to live. Why are we celebrating someone who does not want to live anyway?

Why Would Sodomy Always Be Wrong, Even Anal Sex in Marriage by a Husband and Wife?

Why Would Sodomy Always Be Wrong, Even Anal Sex in Marriage by a Husband and Wife?

Anal sex in marriage rebels against nature because the act attempts to use of sexual organs in acts that are, in themselves, contrary to their purpose. Homosexual sex, by definition, remains sterile—everywhere and always. Thus, the primary purpose of the act is not just frustrated—it’s completely unobtainable and ignored.

Later, Dr. Diggs, Jr. explains, “The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood.”

“Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina,” he clarifies.

7 Ways So-Called “Gay Marriage” Does Affect My Marriage: List These Among Problems with Gay Marriage

For mankind to defy the natural order of man-woman Matrimony in an exclusive, lifelong commitment destroys the institution of marriage altogether. Instead of being a vertical relationship, in simulation of the Trinity (each spouse, plus God), it becomes a horizontal connection instead.

Instead of being a union where God brought my wife and I together for life, we now are being told the only significance to our union comes from the state recognizing it as unique.

The Marriage Challenge:  Why Fewer Women Are Answering the Call to Motherhood

The Marriage Challenge: Why Fewer Women Are Answering the Call to Motherhood

“It is rather the debasing of the womanly character and the dignity of motherhood, and indeed of the whole family, as a result of which the husband suffers the loss of his wife, the children of their mother, and the home and the whole family of an ever watchful guardian.

“More than this, this false liberty and unnatural equality with the husband is to the detriment of the woman herself, for if the woman descends from her truly regal throne to which she has been raised within the walls of the home by means of the Gospel, she will soon be reduced to the old state of slavery (if not in appearance, certainly in reality) and become as amongst the pagans the mere instrument of man.”

The Our Lady of Fatima Secrets: Who Is the Primary Educator of Your Children?

Can you guess who said this?

“Could there be a more damning proof of this than the calm acquiescence of men who see how women grow worn out. In petty, monotonous household work, their strength and time dissipated and wasted, their minds growing narrow and stale, their hearts beating slowly, their will weakened!…

“The home life of the woman is a daily sacrifice to a thousand unimportant trivialities. …

“That will mean freedom for the woman from the old household drudgery and dependence on man. That enables her to exercise to the full her talents and her inclinations.

“The children are brought up under more favorable conditions than at home.”

The Motherhood Calling: the Ultimate Vocation

The Motherhood Calling: the Ultimate Vocation

Pope Saint John Paul the Great wrote a beautiful Apostolic Letter in 1988, titled ‘Mulieris Dignitatem’ (The Dignity of Woman). For all the talk about how much the Church hates women and wants to enslave them to motherhood, apparently no one bothered to read the Pope’s words.

In this letter, he points out, “Scientific analysis fully confirms that the very physical constitution of women is naturally disposed to motherhood—conception, pregnancy and giving birth.”
