REC16-7-06 Identity with Integrity: Journeys of LGBT Catholics

How can someone be Catholic and lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT)? Many of us try to repress our sexuality in order to be perfect Catholics.

We cannot truly be ourselves until we begin the journey to integrat..

REC16-7-10  Paul’s Teaching and Eucharistic Living

REC16-7-10 Paul’s Teaching and Eucharistic Living

At the birth of Christianity, St. Paul understood that following Jesus could not be reduced to engaging in the Jesus rituals; rather, it required living the Jesus life in communion. This exploration of the Corinthian challenges that Paul faced allows us to consider how this same “challenge” confronts contemporary worshiping communities.Edward Foley, OFM..

Can man live without God? Yes, in a physical sense, but is it reasonable? No, because you cannot build a coherent ethical foundation without first establishing the purpose and destiny of human life.
