VOICES from San Francisco

VOICES
Father Ron Rolheiser
Moral outrage
Moral outrage is the antithesis of morality. Yet it’s everywhere present in our world today and is everywhere rationalized on the basis of God and truth.
George Weigel
The defense of the indefensible often leads to a kind of derangement in otherwise rational people. That was the case with the defenders of slavery and legalized racial segregation; it has become the case with abortion.
Father Gerald Coleman, PSS
America's children crusade for gun reform
Fearless young voices railed against the National Rifle Association with the result that many corporations are bailing out of their deals with the NRA.
The first thing that jumped out at me in Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation on holiness, “Gaudete et exsultate,” is how much he has put women in the foreground. 
In human ecology, God created our reproductive systems with an intricate balance of hormones that produces a window of fertility about a quarter of the time in a healthy woman.
“Humanae Vitae,” far from undermining the Catholic Church’s position on abortion, draws the very connections necessary to make its opposition coherent.
SCRIPTURE REFLECTION
Father Joseph Previtali
There is much talk of “intimacy” in our time. To know and be known, to love and be loved; these pursuits dominate the lives of most of those around us.
