Quotes

Before the vote, Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, told the synod that "to pass this legislation is to commit ourselves to an adventure in faith and hope. Like all adventures, it carries dangers ... uncertainties and for success will require integrity and courage."
The pope asked God to help everyone have "the courage to carry out concrete gestures of building peace. Make us willing to listen to the cries of our fellow citizens, who ask us to transform our weapons into instruments of peace, our fears into confidence and our tensions into forgiveness."
"Many Americans dismiss the warning signs feeling that the symptoms are a normal part of aging, but Alzheimer s disease is not a normal part of aging,” Kenzi said."
In Catholic tradition, the Order of Christian Funerals specifies that the church "ministers to the sorrowing and consoles them in the funeral rites with the comforting word of God and the sacrament of the Eucharist."
