"A Tale Of Two Churches" by Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.
In the article, the Cardinal reads the signs of the times and thereby clarifies the confusion in which we now live. He identifies, rightly, the current temptation for the United States to make itself into an alternative religious body to Church, hence the title of the article. Whenever someone or something puts itself in the place of God or tries to usurp the proper role of the Church, problems, usual horrific, always follow. I hope it will be a source of conversation and discuss. I found it very profitable. -Fr. Elias-

Conscience Protection

Bishops Vow to Fight Coercive HHS Mandate
The Catholic bishops of the United States are speaking out clearly -- both individually and collectively -- against the unjust HHS mandate due to its infringement on conscience rights and religious liberty.(http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/religious-liberty/conscience-protection/index.cfm ) As Pope Benedict XVI said: “It is imperative that the entire Catholic Community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres . . . Of particular concern are certain attempts being made to limit the most cherished of American freedoms, the freedom of religion.”

Religious Liberty Homily

    On February 5, 2012 Father Sammie Maletta delivered a Homily at St. John the Evangelist Parish in St. John, Indiana. This Homily addressed how President Obama is threatening our Religious Freedom and declaring war with the Catholic Church. Please take a few moments to listen. No one sums it up quite like Father Maletta.
