On the radio yesterday I heard two commercials, back to back, for Planned Parenthood promoting “sexual health” by advertising their contraceptive services and the morning after pill. Health? Really? Ladies, a normally functioning reproductive cycle is not a health problem. If you have sex and get pregnant, it doesn’t mean that something went wrong; it means that something went beautifully … Read More

Mrs. Schwartz was a member … Read More

I don’t know about you, but I find this passage from The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri J.M. Nouwen an excellent reflection to begin Lent with: “This is the great mystery of our faith. We do not choose God, God chooses us. From all eternity we are hidden ‘in the shadow of God’s hand’ and ‘engraved in his … Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day, readers! As we celebrate romance and love today, let us keep in mind what, or Who, rather, is the source of that love. “God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
