Amanda McNamara: What a narrow construction of “pro life” from Righttolife. What about family tax credits, single parent welfare allowances, maternal/child health and education supports for those most in need? This was a lost opportunity to define “pro-life” properly. Jul 14, 2022 19:25:32 GMT
Concerned Catholic: A concerned Catholic man comes to visit a holy and wise old monk to talk about the problems in the Church.
The man asks the monk, “What do I do if my priest appears to be a heretic?”
“Go to the bishop,” the monk answers.
Aug 23, 2022 18:32:00 GMT
Concerned Catholic: “Well, what do I do if the bishop also appears to be a heretic?” the man asks.
“Go to the pope,” the monk replies.
“And if the pope appears to be a heretic, too?” the man pleads.
Aug 23, 2022 18:32:34 GMT
Concerned Catholic: “Then find out what Catholics have always done, and do that.” Aug 23, 2022 18:33:16 GMT
Paul Kincaid: And what if the heretics band together, arguing that they are right and everyone else wrong, in defiance of the Holy Father. Sept 7, 2022 15:54:51 GMT
Phillip: Anyone who is doing what Catholics have always done according to sacred apostolic tradition and sacred scripture is not a heretic. Catholicism did not begin in the 1960's. What was true and Catholic in 1140, 1640, and 1940 is true and Catholic today. Sept 15, 2022 22:59:14 GMT
Phillip: That's a dogma of the Church by the way, for anyone who's one of the unfortunate recent two generations of recent Catholics who have been de catechised. Sept 15, 2022 23:01:32 GMT
Simon: What is the Providence of God Nov 20, 2022 18:47:53 GMT
Concepta Kiely: Has Alive fallen by the wayside? Dec 5, 2022 22:39:28 GMT
angellux: merry xmas Dec 6, 2022 0:30:36 GMT
Denis Benson: Frank Pavone reduced to the lay state, no appeal possible. Seems somewhat harsh. Dec 18, 2022 20:41:31 GMT
MD: 'Alive' does seem to have lost a little of its 'oomph'. The layout is not as easy on the eye as before. One or two of its articles are veering towards stances akin to globalist takes. For example, a relatively recent article praised Universal Basic Income. Dec 20, 2022 21:43:53 GMT
MD: In the UBI article it appeared to suggest that some jobs are beneath the dignity of people, a very strange take indeed. I would always suggest, particularly to young people, to have a routine and be prepared to work at lowly jobs to start with. Dec 20, 2022 21:47:22 GMT
Young Ireland: I don't think UBI in its strongest sense will work properly, but it's not at all contrary to Catholicism to argue in favour of it. Dec 23, 2022 20:45:25 GMT
Young Ireland: Moreover, while patriotism is esteemed by the Church, so too is international co-operation. Dec 23, 2022 20:46:27 GMT
The Ballymun Boot Boy: From the Catechism: "A just wage is the legitimate fruit of work. To refuse or withhold it can be a grave injustice. In determining fair pay both the needs and the contributions of each person must be taken into account." Jan 9, 2023 12:33:18 GMT
The Ballymun Boot Boy: "Remuneration for work should guarantee man the opportunity to provide a dignified livelihood for himself and his family on the material, social, cultural and spiritual level, taking into account the role and the productivity of each..." Jan 9, 2023 12:33:47 GMT
The Ballymun Boot Boy: "the state of the business, and the common good."222 Agreement between the parties is not sufficient to justify morally the amount to be received in wages. Jan 9, 2023 12:34:06 GMT
The Ballymun Boot Boy: "the state of the business, and the common good. Agreement between the parties is not sufficient to justify morally the amount to be received in wages." Jan 9, 2023 12:34:26 GMT
The Ballymun Boot Boy: So it would seem that some jobs are indeed beneath the dignity of people. I don't see what's inherently globalist about Universal Basic Income. Jan 9, 2023 12:35:40 GMT
