Rethinking 'mission territory'

... "Things could change if good people could stop regarding the Second Amendment as one of the Ten Commandments." ...
Father Ron Rolheiser
Celibacy revisited
... "Celibacy will have you sweating blood in the Garden of Gethsemane sometimes. It goes against some of the deepest, innate, God-given instincts and energies within you and so it doesn’t allow itself to be dealt with lightly." ...
... "The rapid de-Christianization of Europe, however, prompts a thought-experiment: What should the church do when this process of ecclesial maturation slips into reverse?"...
... "It is indeed true that, too often, parish life revolves almost exclusively around the concerns and interests of married people and their families. This can and should change."
Father Tadeusz Pacholczyk
Sorting through 'solutions' to the HIV/AIDS pandemic
... "We should not be supporting or facilitating behaviors involving multiple sexual partners. These sexual practices, in the final analysis, are not only immoral in themselves, but also reckless and clearly contributory to the spread of STDs." ...
Father Armado Picardal
... "As the clergy and religious exercise their role as servant leaders in the church that is called to be a community of missionary disciples, they must do this in active collaboration with the lay faithful who share in the church’s mission by virtue of their baptism." ...
Sister Eloise Rosenblatt, RSM
... "If people knew that this would be the effect of Ash Wednesday ashes on your forehead – or on your eyes – would there be such a crowd lining up?" ...
