Saint John Paul II, Pope

Saint John Paul II asked of everyone not to be afraid and to open wide the doors to Christ, he was himself the first to do what he asked of others: “society, culture, political and economic systems he opened up to Christ, turning back with the strength of a titan — a strength which came to him from God — a tide which appeared irreversible. By his witness of faith, love and apostolic courage, accompanied by great human charisma, this exemplary son of Poland helped believers throughout the world not to be afraid to be called Christian, to belong to the Church, to speak of the Gospel. In a word: he helped us not to fear the truth, because truth is the guarantee of liberty. His letters, encyclicals, and promotion of a New Evangelization and Theology of the Body formed the thinking of the Church not only in his own day, but they continue to direct Catholic life today.

Grant us the courage and wisdom, humility and grace, so that we may act with justice and find peace in you.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. AMEN

Responsible Parenthood

This week is NFP awareness week and kicking it off with understanding responsible parenthood. "Married love 'involves a totality, in which all the elements of the person enter—appeal of the body and instinct, power of feeling and affectivity, aspiration of the spirit and of the will' (Familiaris consortio [FC], no. 13)...Married love is "caught up into divine love" which enriches the couple's relationship with grace (GS, no. 48). Marriage is for the good of husband and wife, the creation of new people, and the forming of the family.." Responsible Parenthood

In honor of NFP awareness week...May we keep at the forefront of our mind that we have been created in God's image and likeness.
