“I Saw You”
My brothers and sisters in Burma,
Your love and peace abound!
Seeing others with compassion!
Hearts soaring above ground!
Now united not divided -
Praying for your people.
I saw You at the papal Mass.
Your beauty captivates! /
- Gary Edward Geraci
TODAY the Little Sisters of the Poor defended themselves in SF court - the State of California was attempting to force them to violate their deeply held Catholic beliefs on sexual ethics. The judges did NOT seem to be buying it - but still, PLEASE PRAY FOR THEM! Sisters, you’re an inspiration to us in both your humility and your steadfastness in faith - God bless you!
Today we started Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC’s Marian Consecration book, “33 Days fo Morning Glory.” We encourage all of our fellow ‘friends through Christ’ to join us in this beautiful retreat by following along in our insta stories! There, we will be posting the Consecration prayer/meditation for the day! We would love for all of you to join us in this spiritual journey, even if you are joining in late! If you skip a day, it is okay, keep going with the Consecration! This book has many more resources, aside from the actual Consecration, so we encourage all of you to buy a copy. God bless!
Mother Mary, pray for us!

What does the Catholic Church say about the practices and beliefs of Mormonism?
While individual Mormons may be persons of good conscience, Mormonism itself is a belief system that would reduce the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit from being the three Persons of the one, true, and infinite God to being three limited, finite deities among an uncounted multitude of deities, all of whom merely reshaped small parts of a preexisting cosmos.
Mormonism teaches that human beings may, by practicing the tenets of its faith, become gods and goddesses themselves, with their own planets full of people worshiping them.
While the Catholic Church would reject nothing that is true or good in Mormonism or any other world religion, Catholic theology would have to note that there is a tremendous amount in Mormonism that is neither true nor good. Further, because Mormonism presents itself as a form of Christianity yet is incompatible with the historic Christian faith, sound pastoral practice would need to warn the Christian faithful: Mormon theology is blasphemous, polytheistic, and cannot be considered on par with the theology of other Christian groups.
