"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Six Geese A-Laying? C'mon!
But I will mention this... I discovered Nancy Pelosi is a theologian after all! The woman appears to know traditional Catholic Church teaching rather well.
Mrs. Pelosi admitted, "I have some concerns about the Church's position respecting a woman's right to choose. I am a practicing Catholic, although they're probably not too happy about that. But it is my faith." The Speaker affirmed, yet lamenting, "I practically mourn this difference of opinion [pro-choice vs. pro-life] because I feel what I was raised to believe is consistent with what I profess, and that is that we are all endowed with a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions," she continues. "And that women should have that opportunity to exercise their free will." - Story
Sadly, Mrs. Pelosi neglects to acknowledge the consequences of such choices.
