The Whole Law

Election Day is Tuesday, November 4th. On Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30 pm in our Parish Hall, Rev. Walter Hoye, a Baptist minister who is a renowned pro-life activist, will give us an ecumenical perspective on forming our conscience to value life in all its stages and circumstances as we consider how we are going to vote, so that our social and political activities correspond to our convictions. Our political influence as Catholics is a contribution to the world. Separation of Church and State recognizes the value of each, but does not excuse us from participation in each. “The Church and the political community, in fact, express themselves in organized structures that are not ends in themselves but are intended for the service of man, to help him to exercise his rights fully, those inherent in his reality as a citizen and a Christian, and to fulfil correctly his corresponding duties” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, paragraph 425). Our Lord’s response in today’s gospel cannot be taken for granted. “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments” (Mt. 22:37-40).  Please join us for this event on Tuesday evening and take part in this discussion by asking questions you may have regarding the elections and ballot initiatives.

CNA - Saint of the Day

  • Born the son of a wealthy Italian family, Damian was kidnapped as an infant by a man who suffered from a mental illness. His parents prayed fervently to the Virgin Mary for help, and searchers were led to the unharmed boy by a miraculous light. Damian later became a Dominican priest, and he was famous for his missions throughout Italy, during which hundreds of people were converted to the faith, and was also known for working miracles. Many miracles were reported at his tomb in Modena,  Italy after his death in 1484.
