"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.

Archbishop Nienstedt is unambiguous in his defense of Catholic Doctrine.

Family as the foundation of culture.
IV. The family under attack
Today, many evil forces have set their sights on the dissolution of marriage and the debasing of family life.  Sodomy, abortion, contraception, pornography, the redefinition of marriage, and the denial of objective truth are just some of the forces threatening the stability of our civilization.  The source of these machinations is none other than the Father of Lies.  Satan knows all too well the value that the family contributes to the fabric of a good solid society, as well as the future of God’s work on earth. - Legatus Magazine
Read the entire address and keep it on file.  It is clear teaching.

God bless Archbishop Nienstedt - with prayers and thanksgiving for such a faithful Shepherd. 


  1. I smell desperation on Church leaders parts. Natural law arguments aren't working, "shut up, quit thinking for yourselves and just do what we tell you to do even if it makes no sense," is not working, so many Catholics see gay people, couples and families for what they are...what do we do...we retreat to the argument people always have when stuck..."It's SATAN!"

    "Family as the foundation of culture."

    So true...and its amazing that there are so many different types of families out in the world...if only the church would recognize them, support them and affirm them, from gay families to friends who support each other, etc.

    I think Satan would much rather have gay people who are ashamed of themselves, deny themselves a full life, and some who either go around screwing behind bushes in the park and then dying, or who get married, produce kids, and then go screwing around in bushes in the park, ripping apart their families life.

    So, far from making Satan happy I would think (and I maybe being a bit logical here) that monogamous gay couples, raising kids,some of whom are the ones no one else wants, forming stable relationships and families and homes and taking care of others, staying healthy and providing a safe place for themselves and others would make Satan very, very, very annoyed to say the least!

  2. Your right Terry, nothing Satan loves more then stable,loving families,people getting along and people who are comfortable and respectful of their own sexuality and others.

    He HATES people who are so screwed up in their heads they are promiscuous, or just weirdos living in the shadows angry at missing out on life, and children who have no parents so they are lost in the system, who in turn grow up angry and repeat the cycle...That makes a lot of sense.
