A Call to Families: Raise your Kids Clinging to the Teachings of Christ

The following was posted by Courageous Priest.com about the resent Supreme Court ruling on marriage. I wanted to share some of it becuase of Archbishop Chaput's statement on what we must now do, even more so than ever...one family and one marriage at a time. God have mercy on us and bless our children, and help us have the courage to live the faith entirely, always.

"Following the Supreme Court’s ruling Friday that declared so-called same-sex “marriage” a constitutional right, multiple bishops have since voiced their opinions. While many have been forthright in their condemnation of the Supreme Court’s defenseless ruling, some have offered highly ambiguous statements, painting a strange moral equivalency between the faithful and faithless.

Immediately after the ruling, the USCCB issued its strongest statement yet, calling it a “tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us.” They also exclaimed that the definition of marriage will never change, regardless of what nine elected justices on the Supreme Court tell us.

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia offered no concessions, saying that “the mistakes of the Court change nothing about the nature of men and women, and the truth of God’s Word. The task now for believers is to form our own families even more deeply in the love of God, and to rebuild a healthy marriage culture, one marriage at a time, from the debris of today’s decision.”
