  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

The Synod on the Family

1catholicsalmon:

The truth.

Originally posted on Father Acervo's Corner:

Father Acervo’s Corner: October 19, 2014

Today marks the completion of the Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family, which took place in the Vatican over the past several days. You may have heard about it somewhat it the news. Unfortunately, much of what the media reported was (not surprisingly) based on incomplete information and was skewed by various agendas. This has contributed to much of the confusion regarding the direction of the Church. One thing should always be clear: no matter how much anyone wants it, the Church will never stray from her teaching regarding homosexuality and marriage. Not because the Church is “rigid” or “out of touch”, but because she can’t change her teaching. It’s not her teaching to change – it’s Christ’s teaching which has been entrusted to the Church for safekeeping and transmission. Jesus is the same “yesterday, today, and forever” (Heb 13:8). Truth…

The Church has a unique role to play in healing Scotland’s wounds

Originally posted on God and Politics in the UK:

Scottish Flag mendedYesterday morning we woke up to the news that nothing has changed – Scotland is still part of the United Kingdom and will remain so. Except of course there is the reality that things will never be the same again.

The No vote may have won the day by a healthy margin, but in no way can we all walk away from the last two years of campaigning, whether we live in Scotland or not, and carry on regardless. The promises of the politicians from Westminster of increased powers for the Scottish parliament now have to be carried through and there is the question of how the outcome will affect the future governance of the other regions of the UK.

As the build up to yesterday’s vote has drawn towards its fervent climax, so the divisions between those on each side have become more fractious. Given that the stakes have been…

Strasbourg rules again: no human right to same-sex marriage

1catholicsalmon:

The redefinition of marriage is questionable.

Originally posted on Catholic Voices Comment:

echr1There is no human right to a same-sex marriage, human rights law does not require countries to “grant access to marriage to same-sex couples”, and the state acts lawfully in seeking to defend the traditional understanding of marriage as between a man and a woman, according to a ruling by Europe’s highest human-rights court last week.

The judgement (PDF here) handed down by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) at Strasbourg both reiterates and reinforces a previous 2012 ruling which made clear that same-sex couples did not have a human right to enter marriage. Strasbourg’s consistent view is noteworthy because it has a clear remit to uphold anti-discrimination and human rights laws, and vigorously pursues the rights of gay among other minority groups.

Last week’s ruling is the final stage of a case first brought in Finland, where, uniquely in Scandinavia, there is no same-sex marriage (SSM) law, but where gay…
