In Testimonium...

At a formation session one evening the seminary rector told us emphatically with regard to preaching:

“Never repeat yourself! Never repeat yourself!”

His memorable lesson makes me cautious to mention past events except for the fact that they were so successful and enjoyable for the participants.

The door-to-door evangelization teams, having ventured out on St. Nicholas Day replete with red furry hats trimmed in white, reported back that they had a wonderful experience. The age range was magnificent. Hopefully this becomes not only the signature apostolate for seventhgraders preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation but also a favorite occasional if not even monthly activity. Dave Scully has been leading a great committee. Please contact him if you would like to help organize evangelization efforts OR participate from time to time in these events OR go door-to-door in your neighborhood but on your own schedule.

Humanae Vitae

The transmission of human life is a most serious role in which married people collaborate freely and responsibly with God the Creator. It has always been a source of great joy to them, even though it sometimes entails many difficulties and hardships.

The fulfillment of this duty has always posed problems to the conscience of married people, but the recent course of human society and the concomitant changes have provoked new questions. The Church cannot ignore these questions, for they concern matters intimately connected with the life and happiness of human beings.
