when you only have right winged media in western cultures defending marriage, you have a long way to go seeing often these groups are racist and affluent and not humble. I think Pope Francis and Cardinal Dolan will be better advocates for marriage by steering away from the Andrew Bolts of society.

It is true they haven't been too good at that either. However, there is a difference between legality and morality. I think there is one question I could ask that could start a real debate that, to be quite honest and not to sound elitist here, can be more meaningful and open and smart than the one right now: what business is it for politicians to get involved in such a ritual (as in, why have any local/state/federal standard on it in the first place?) In my opinion, no matter what the decision is, the Christian standard is the highest of any political one anyone could ever set. In this debate, our role should be that this bill will not make gay marriage moral but just legal, as in no one has to go to prison for it and are not discriminated politically (meaning taxes and status mostly).

Amen!!!! If all Catholics made a pledge to God to try to behave more like Pope Francis with loving humility, watch the Mass numbers increase..

Let's help Pope Francis build God's Church by doing our bit, a bit extra then normal, but make it the norm!!!

Didn't know that one about the 18th March because the 17th falls on a Sunday in Lent for 2013! Was wondering why was it listed on the 18th in the Divine Mercy calendar. I thought it was a typo but not so - wow! And further to this, I didn't know St Patrick was of Italian parentage!! We all presumed during our growing-up years he was Irish!

Elizabeth!! Hi! i don't think women are scary. I just think men don't know how to live up to their masculine potential, and women aren't encouraged to allow their feminine gifts to blossom. In the modern world this can be seen as a good thing. But my premise is that this results in confusion or even worse, men whose untamed masculinity finds expression in violence or other undignified behaviour.

Since i've given this topic some thought and done a little bit of research I have been totally facinated by the subject, particularly of the good expression of masculinity.

Hey, I hope you've been well!
