ProLifeCorner-  Not long after the United States of America began to take shape and the founding fathers set forth their principles, the Catholic Church in America began to grow. In the beginning it was not in any way victimized by the politics of the day.

Over time, however, that all changed. The role of the Catholic Church in the context of the American experience became challenging, at least as far as the Vatican was concerned. As early as the late 1800s Rome was reminding American bishops that, while the Catholic population should be assimilated into the culture of this still young America, the integration of Catholics into the culture should not necessitate changing anything fundamental to the identity of the Church and its people (in other words, don’t change, modify, dilute, or misinterpret the Church’s teachings for any reason)!

ProLifeCorner.com-   Pastor Timothy Barr’s homily today cautions us to not to interpret reality through our emotions. He explains that passions are not a bad thing but they must be guided by the truth.  That truth is Jesus Christ.   When we are obedient to the truth there is great joy.  He further stated that the man is the head of the family but the woman is the heart of the family sharing equal responsibility and, hopefully through their teachings and actions, are leading their children to heaven.
