Pontifical Academy For Contraception Strikes Again

The 'pill' (including the 'morning after pills) not infrequently has an abortifacient effect. It prevents implantation of an already fertilized egg, i.e. an unborn baby, who then dies without baptism.
"For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own desires, and will turn away from …More

"For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own desires, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander away to myths. As for you, always be sober, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, carry out your ministry fully." 2 Timothy 3-5

Rigidity: Behave Like Men Not Like Amoebas

"Brood of vipers, how could you speak to good effect, wicked as you are? It is from the heart’s overflow that the mouth speaks; a good man utters good words from his store of goodness, the wicked man, from his store of wickedness, can utter nothing but what is evil.
And I say this, that in the day of judgement men will be brought to account for every thoughtless word they have spoken.

@mccallansteve A rather sweeping accusation, friend. Truth be told, one might reword your statement as a 'fill-in-the-blank':

Eugenio Scalfari Dead

Our Lady Of Fatima said: “Many souls go to Hell because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them." July 13th is the anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima (July 13, 1917) where she showed the children a vision of hell.
How many of us can say we prayed for the salvation of this man when he was alive? If he was consigned to perdition for lack of grace received …More

How many of us can say we prayed for the salvation of this man when he was alive? If he was consigned to perdition for lack of grace received through our sacrifices and prayers then perhaps we might reflect on this coldness on our part.
Even so, remembering the Good Thief, it remains a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins.

South Korea: The Catholic Boom Is Over

@Mattathias Maccabeus: You stated "In order to even “hear” the word one has to have the grace of Faith."
By using "hear" you are ignoring the fact that hearing involves the human ear receiving that which is being preached after which the operation of the grace of Faith can "hear" with the ears of the soul. The true sewer has to toss out the seeds for them to either take root or wither.
