Bruce Jenner & the Transgender Question
Last edited 1st July 2015

Commenting on the recent Bruce Jenner “gender reassignment” issue, Father Mike Schmitz discusses the difference between one’s perception of gender and gender reality. Gender stereotypes have altered our perception of what it means to be a man or a woman, but it is unhealthy to expect reality to conform to our perceptions. If there is someone in your life struggling with gender identity, or any other brokenness, Father Mike encourages you to be there for them.

Political Responsibility: Pope's Prayer Intention for July 2015
Last edited 1st July 2015

This month, the Holy Father has asked Catholics everywhere to pray: "That political responsibility may be lived at all levels as a high form of charity." Throughout history people have held a negative view of politicians. Yet this month’s prayer intention reminds us that the ultimate goal of politics is justice and charity. In The Joy of the Gospel Pope Francis wrote: “Politics, though often denigrated, remains a lofty vocation and one of the highest forms of charity, inasmuch as it seeks the common good.”

Last edited 29th June 2015

Why is John's birthday celebrated anyway? It is more usual for saints to be commemorated on the date of their death, which is in fact the day of their birth into eternal life. But John, like Christ and the Blessed Virgin, has a feast day for his earthly birth. His birth was important in itself because it heralded the birth of Christ, but there was another reason that set John apart from other saints.
