The Anti-Catholic U.N. agenda

I am so tired of absurd claims like this one.

The rapid spread in Latin America of the virus that causes AIDS is made worse by the Roman Catholic Church's stand against using condoms, a U.N. official said on Monday.

Excuse me. But what are people doing that they need condoms? Are they engaging in extra-marital sex? Are they engaging in homosexual activity? The Church doesn’t approve of these activities either. So is this UN official suggesting that people are ignoring the Church teachings on extra-marital sex and homosexual activity and taking to heart the Church ban on contraception, including condoms? Such allegations are no more than tactics to pressure the Church to fund condom distribution programs. The U.N. doesn’t care what the Church believes. It just wants Church money and resources to enable people to continue their immoral behavior without consequences.

How many U.N. sponsored chastity programs are there? The Church would better serve the people and stop the spread of AIDS by bringing John Paul II’s Theology of the Body to the people instead of distributing condoms. Of course, don’t expect any U.N. officials to applaud such efforts.

Especially when in countries like Uganda, it is the Catholic teaching that has been of the most help in bringing AIDS rates down.

Here's a very basic article summarizing their successes.

Parent Letter from a Catechist

I am going to be teaching seventh grade CCD this year. We do most of the preparation for confirmation during this year since Confirmation is usually scheduled for the fall of the eighth grade year.I have composed a letter to the parents to try and keep them active in their children's religious education. I thought I would post it here and get your feedback before I send it out in a couple of weeks.

I am privileged to be your child’s seventh grade CCD teacher for the 2006-2007 school year. This is a very important year. We will focus on your child’s preparation for confirmation. Of course, you have already been preparing your child for this sacrament for many years. You are the primary catechist for your child. You show how important your Faith is by making Mass attendance a top priority and by family prayer.

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. It is a beginning. It is not a graduation. This year we will work to solidify the foundation of your child’s Catholic Faith.…

Dispelling the Myth of the Travel Dispensation

One of the fun things about having a site meter on my blog is I can see which posts garner the most attention. I can also see how people find my blog. One of the most read posts from my two years of blogging is this one that discusses finding Mass while traveling. I would like to think this post is so popular because it is so well written. The truth of the matter is that it generates so much traffic because I use the words “travel dispensation for Mass”—as in “There is no such thing as a travel dispensation for Mass.” I would guess that nearly a dozen times every week, someone googles “travel dispensation for Mass” and finds my blog. I wonder how many of these folks are poor souls trying to assuage their Catholic guilt with evidence of a justification for missing Mass while on the road.

I know that when I tell my seventh grade CCD students that attending Mass every Sunday is a commandment (one of the top ten!) and not just a pretty good idea they are amazed. Missing Mass has become so …

United Breaks Guitars

This guy is really talented and what a creative way to get your message across. I think he captured the "indifferent employee" perfectly. They don't just work for airlines. I think I ran into them at Walmart on Friday!
