Bishop D'Arcy responds to Jenkins

Read here. I'll post a longer response later. Also, good letter in the Observer yesterday by a woman who is upset with the Jenkins decision. Why? Well, in a powerful and compelling statement, she says that as a woman who was raped, this play offends her dignity and isn't good for anyone. Read that letter here.

As one of my friends stated before, if the whole world was for me, but the people who dissented were Fr. Bill Miscamble, Fr. John Coughlin, Prof. Cavadini and a woman who was raped while she was a Notre Dame student, I would seriously question my decision.

Jenkins fails ND

I have so much to say and not enough time to say it. Suffice it to say that Jenkins has made a huge error in judgment, and has thus exposed many to something that is truly evil and offensive in every way. I'm too sad to be angry. This just means more distortion and more lies about the Truth of the Catholic Church.

Story here. And here. Text of the final remarks here.

Our Lady, pray for us.

The Anniversary of JPII's Death

Last year on this day, John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla) passed from this world and probably into heaven, after bringing the Catholic Church into the 3rd millenium and changing the lives of countless people, including myself. I can safely say that he is the way that Christ chose to touch my heart and bring me back into the fold of orthodoxy. I think many can say this. John Paul the Great will forever be remembered as the Pontiff who gave us "Theology of the Body," a new hope in the young generation of the Church, and an example of extreme self-sacrifice and love. It is only fitting that today I'm working on a paper exploring his understanding of the human person and human sexuality as it relates to the Code of Canon Law.

Today we remember a man who truly gave us an image of what it means to be loved by Christ. What a joy it is to live in that love!
