Have you found yourself dealing with debate and disagreement among our family and friends in light of the latest ambiguous, weird, or perplexing thing Pope Francis (or one of his hirelings) said or did? Do you find yourself feeling defensive for the first time and even accused of being divisive?

You are not alone. In this kitchen-based commentary, I share some ideas and reminders of how to stay calm when tensions set in. Jesus told us flat out that He didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword (Mt 10), and then He provides the context: following Him as a disciple means making Him number one in your life. The strongly held opinions of spouses, brothers, sisters, uncles, pals, etc. can’t compare with the teachings of Christ and His lordship. Hence, tensions and being an enemy (Jesus is using Jewish hyperbole here) with otherwise close relations is part of the life of the Christian.

FROM FACEBOOK:

“Sometimes I wonder what decade I’m in. Maybe we are still in the late ’60s or early ’70s? A man argued with me recently that we Catholics should “stop putting so much energy” into telling people “why X is wrong or X will send them to hell” and more about God’s love. I’m all for telling folks about God’s love! But has he missed the fact that we’ve had two generations (at least) who have heard little else but “God is love”? I grew up as a Catholic in the ’70s and ’80s. My story is *extremely common* (below) and any GenX Catholic in America will identify with it. So, my question is… Why do folks–the ones who do not want to talk about hell and the danger of sin–seem to care so little about the souls who NEED to hear that part? Sure, some sinners won’t be motivated by that and won’t need that “warning”– but MANY SOULS DO. And even if it’s only 10% of all souls who need to hear a severe warning about hell and sin (like I did) before they turn around to God’s love… well, aren’t their souls worth it? I say, yes, their souls are worth saving, too. Good gracious, what happened to “diversity,” people?”

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

That, according to Fr. Fulgence Meyer, OFM, from his 1920s treatise Plain Talks on Marriage.  Of course use of artificial contraception of any type is always and everywhere sinful.  Periodic abstinence can of course be practiced legitimately, but even here there are moral dangers, contrary to what far too many NFP promoters convey to their followers. While there may be occasional, and, according to Father, quite rare, family economic situations that couples may find themselves in, permitting them to engage in periodic abstinence to prevent reproduction, Fr. Meyer notes that the economic justifications for such are often self-serving and dominated by worldly, materialist concerns.  What is far more virtuous for Catholics to engage in, should circumstances force a perceived need to minimize the likelihood of reproduction, is total cessation from the marital act if at all possible, rather than recourse to periodic abstinence.  Of course, this must be agreed…

ROME, July 13, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — In a spirit of love, humility, and faithfulness, 16 international life and family advocates are asking Pope Francis in a powerful new video to unambiguously speak the truth of the Catholic faith, to end doctrinal confusion, to restore clarity, and to be the Holy Father that Catholics need.

“We are living in a very special time of a deep crisis of faith inside the Church,” said Bishop Athanasius Schneider, the Auxiliary in the diocese of Maria Santissima in Kazakhstan, who opens the video, produced by LifeSiteNews.

“It is not a secret. It is very evident. A lot of people, the simple faithful, are suffering because of the situation of confusion,” he added.

The 30-minute film, titled Plea to the Pope, comes in the wake of confusion caused by the pope’s April release of his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, in which he made a number of concerning statements about marriage, divorce, sin, reception of Holy Communion, and sex education for children. The Exhortation has generated numerous contradictory interpretations from various theologians as well as cardinals and bishops.

Bishop Schneider called it “very urgent” that the pope “states more clearly, in a very unambiguous manner — in such a manner which will not leave any space for misinterpretations — [on] the issues of family and the sacredness of marriage.”

The film contains an impressive lineup of international life and family advocates who decided that the time had come to voice their concerns for the good of the Church, of souls, and of nations.

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
