If they don't like the common Catholic belief and point-of-view they should just find somewhere else to go instead of "attacking" the chaplain for sticking to the Catholic views.

We should pray for more priests like Fr. Shaffer! At the University, young people receive knowledge without God which equals to pride and without solid foundation they can be lost. We need more priests reminding them moral teachings!

In the Celtic approach to confession there was no public exclusion from participation in Church liturgy, nor was there a requirement to perform public penances for many years.

They developed Penance books, or penitentials, that prescribed what should be done in terms of penance. This site - http://www.anglo-saxon.net/penance/ - has some examples of the penances.

"From the sixth to the eighth centuries the monks from Ireland and England introduced the possibility of being able to receive forgiveness for grave sins more than once and they introduced penances that were not quite so strict, although still severe by our standards."

Could you give some examples of "...penances that were not quite so strict, although still severe by our standards."

Cheers!

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!
