See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

"Sexual differences cannot be dismissed as irrelevant to the definition of marriage."



Addressing the bishops from my part of the country upon their ad limina visit this past week, the Holy Father reaffirmed Church teaching regarding marriage...
He added that the traditional family and marriage had to be "defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature" because, he said, whatever injured families injured society.

"In this regard, particular mention must be made of the powerful political and cultural currents seeking to alter the legal definition of marriage (in the United States)," he added in a clear reference to gay marriage. - Reuters
What never ceases to amaze me is how progressive Catholics continue to work in dogged opposition to the Pope and the Bishops - most of whom are now, more than ever, in complete agreement and communion with the Holy See on Catholic teaching regarding marriage and contraception:  How 'they' can fail to see the will of God in such magisterial unity, seems to me to be moving strikingly close to actual apostasy.

  1. ... it is does seem very 'other dimension' in the 'dogged opposition' and so well orchestrated, doesn't it?
