The pro-life vote

(First of two parts) On April 25, the Board of the Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas came out with a statement urging “Lay Groups and Christian Organizations” to lay aside non-partisanship in the coming senatorial elections. Invoking “the sovereignty of our country, the lives of our people, and the honor of the Philippines”, the letter urges the faithful to vote for 10 candidates in the coming senatorial elections. These 10 candidates—the “Otso Diretso” of the Liberal Party (Alejano, Aquino, Diokno, Gutoc, Hilbay, Macalintal, Roxas, Tañada) plus Colmenares and Poe – were specifically the ones endorsed by the “People’s Choice Movement” back…

ROME— The Catholic Church must reach out to couples living together without being married, Pope Francis told those involved in family ministry in the Diocese of Rome.

Some 850 priests, permanent deacons and married couples involved in diocesan and parish projects to prepare couples for marriage and minister to families met with…

CBCP Pastoral Exhortation “Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called sons and daughters of God.”(Mt 5:9) Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, do we not all aspire for the grace to be called “sons and daughters of God?” If we do so, then we must constantly strive to be peacemakers in these troubled times in our country. And that means to always strive to bring love where there is hatred, pardon where there is injury, faith where there is doubt, hope where there’s despair, light where there is darkness, and joy where there is sadness (from the prayer for…

There is more value in a little study of humility and in a single act of it than in all the knowledge in the world. (St. Teresa of Avila) Why is pride an enemy, even our greatest enemy? Pride, “inordinate self-love, is the cause of every sin.” (St. Thomas) If sin is our enemy, the only real evil, and pride its cause, then pride is the greatest enemy within us we have to overcome. Pride was the sin of Adam and Lucifer.  It is “the chief cause of suffering in every nation, in every family since the world began.” (C.S….

PORTLAND, Oregon, July 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An American archbishop has released guidelines upholding the Church’s constant teaching that Catholics in “serious sin” – including active homosexuals and those in adulterous unions – must repent before receiving Communion. The new guidelines from Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon are intended to implement Pope Francis’s Exhortation Amoris Laetitia in a way that he said is “compatible with Church teaching.” The guidelines state that those in “serious sin,” including divorced and civilly-remarried persons living unchastely as well as persons in an active same-sex relationship, must “sacramentally confess all serious sins with a…
