Quotes

"Then the other disciple, who had arrived at the tomb first, also went in. And he saw and believed."
There are the enigmatic and controverted verses of Scripture: "For Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might lead you to God. Put to death in the flesh, he was brought to life in the spirit. In it he also went to preach to the spirits in prison, who had once been disobedient while God patiently waited in the days of Noah during the building of the ark, in which a few persons, eight in all, were saved through water" (1 Peter 3:18–20)
...That's why Domenech wrote, "I doubt this is the type of company to spend one dime on this contraception mandate. They will just drop coverage, and pay employees the difference...rather than compromise their beliefs." Except it looks like they've been doing just that
...of U S bishops, led by Boston's Cardinal Sean O'Malley, will say Mass at the border wall between Mexico and the United States in Nogales, Arizona. "Following the example given by Pope Francis at the Italian island of Lampedusa, where where the Holy Father remembered migrants from Africa who have died trying to reach the island and Europe, the bishops will call attention to the humanitarian consequences of the broken U S immigration system."
