St. Philip Neri
Last edited 26th May 2015

If one had to choose one saint who showed the humorous side of holiness that would Philip Neri. Born in 1515 in Florence, he showed the impulsiveness and spontaneity of his character from the time he was a boy. In fact one incident almost cost him his life. Seeing a donkey loaded with fruit for market, the little boy had barely formed the thought of jumping on the donkey's back before he had done it. The donkey, surprised, lost his footing, and donkey, fruit, and boy tumbled into the cellar with the boy winding up on the bottom! Miraculously he was unhurt.

From today, the Irish Constitution assumes a mother does not matter to a baby, and a father is irrelevant to his son. That is madness.

Last edited 26th May 2015

A Reflection on How Even Works of Charity Cannot Eclipse Obedience to Christ
Last edited 25th May 2015

There is a passage in the gospels that breaks conventions and cuts to the core of what has come to be called the “Social Gospel.” To be sure, serving the poor is an essential and necessary part of our faith and we should all take part in this ministry. But the Gospel (Matt 26:6-14) also says that something else is even more important... Msgr. Charles Pope from the Archdiocese of Washington reflect on this challenging Scripture passage in this article.

Last edited 25th May 2015

Changing the legislated meaning of marriage, changes the meaning of parenting under the law, says Chris Meney, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Sydney.
