  • The Sacrament of Marriage and the Spectre of Divorce
    Post by Matthew Milhon, 1/20/2012

    “"Is there a history of divorce in your family?" Being a 23-year-old man on the verge of marriage, this question caught me more than a little off guard when asked by a priest who is preparing my fiancĂ©e and I for the Sacrament of Matrimony. At first I was not entirely sure why I found it offensive. Was it that I found it insensitive to pose such a question to a couple preparing to enter into sacramental union, or maybe I just did not want to entertain the notion of a future without my bride-to-be? ... ”

  • Family Friendly Content Boosts Radio Ratings
    Post by Matthew Milhon, 12/21/2011

    “When considering the climate of the contemporary American entertainment industry one does not have to look far to find that the majority of mainstream films, music, television shows, etc. are ensconced with gratuitous violence and sexual imagery that, even a generation ago, would have been deemed inappropriate for public consumption. Take this and couple it with record breaking budgets for Hollywood films and chart topping musical performers whose singles promote same-sex relationships and blatantly ridicule Christianity, and yet are still invited to perform in TV specials such as "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving". One would think that the trend in modern entertainment would be driving headlong deeper into the moral quagmire in which it currently finds itself. ... ”

  • Why Vote Pro-Life?
    A Catechesis of the Catholic Church and the Political Process - Post by Bob Laird, 10/17/2011

    “I pastor friend of mine once told me that he's never had an original idea, but he takes all of his ideas from others. After hearing the homily at Mass yesterday by Father John DeCelles' of St. Raymond's Parish in Springfield, VA, I recalled that statement and realized that no amount of research and preparation could mimic his words. Father used the gospel reading of "Rendering to Caesar..." (Matt 22:15-21) to present a catechesis of the Catholic teaching on voting and our participation in the political process. It makes one think about and understand the genesis of the statement, "I vote pro-life!" and why every person who calls him or herself a Christian must internalize that statement and act on it. ... ”
