As a part of the Iowa bishops’ Faithful Citizenship effort, we ask you to pray for those who are in public service or running for office, that they may use their position to protect the defenseless, promote the life and dignity of the poor and vulnerable, and seek ways to advance fairness, justice, and dignity in our society.

Hiatus for September

Brothers All,



I am going to be taking a hiatus from posting for the month of September.  I need to recharge my batteries a bit with regard to the blog, as well as do some research on how to best write about "Into the Breach."



That being said, I look forward to picking up the blog again in October.  Please pray for me, as you remain in my prayers every day.

Supreme Chaplain on Voter Responsibility

Brothers,

We are in the middle of a very tense time with regard to the 2016 election cycle.  As we ramp up for November, it is important to take a moment to remember these very important words from our Supreme Chaplain.





His Excellency William E. Lori stated:

If we want to turn back the powerful incursions of secularism against the dignity of human life and the freedom to practice our faith . . . then we must . . . stand with Christ, to know our faith, to love…

Words From Our Supreme Chaplain

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a challenge to Washington state regulations that require pharmacies to stock abortifacient drugs. As Justice Alito noted, “This case is an ominous sign.”



The Stormans family runs Ralph’s Thriftway, a local grocery store and pharmacy in Washington state. The family made a decision not to stock Plan B, a drug that can cause an early abortion. The Stormans are Christians who believe that life begins at conception, so they do not sell drugs that…

ICC Newsletter - Aug. 15, 2016 - Iowa bishops release Faithful Citizenship statement

The Iowa bishops have released their “Faithful Citizenship for Iowa Catholics” statement for the 2016 general election. The Catholic Church does not endorse or oppose candidates or political parties. However, it contributes to the political process by encouraging Catholics to take action in the political arena with a properly formed conscience.

“The defense of human life and dignity must begin with the fundamental right to life from natural conception to natural death. From there it…

Lists, Lists, Lists....

Brothers,



We live in a time of immediate gratification and in a time of social media outpourings constantly.  One such way to emote on social media is to form lists.  10 ways to be a better man.  15 ways to shave your dog.  8 ways to better brush your teeth.  It goes on and on and on, ad nauseam.



I propose to you that lists are not, in and of themselves bad things, but rather it is the subject matter.  IF the subject matter is inane, then the lists will be absurd.…

Question on the Culture of Death

Brothers,

Continuing the conversation on morality from last week, we see a question regarding the Culture of Death arise.

Is the "culture of death" a characteristic of our century?

a) During the twentieth century ideologies have spread which see reason incarnate in the State, in the "super-race," in the Party. The State, for example, "had reason" to demand total submission of individuals, and it was "reasonable" for the individuals to submit…

Q & A on Morality

Brothers, 



In our times, the questions around morality can be a little cloudy, the Church teaches one thing, society says another.  Here are a few ways hopefully to look at a few of these questions in a new light.

Isn't effective contraception the best way to avoid abortion?

a) Promoters of abortion have sold public opinion on the idea that prevention of abortion depends on contraception. But the habit of contraception engenders an abortion…
