Announcing the Courageous Priest Sacred Image Framed Art Extravaganza: We just finished with our Sacred Heart Special event, which was a huge success. Thank you so very much. Now, I know that the price of the Sacred Heart portraits were high for most. The simple fact was we were selling a Cathederal grade portrait. Sadly, at $300 to $660, that leaves most of us not being able to purchase. Trust me, I feel your pain. So, we decided to do something about it. After receiving many request for a portrait for the “average Joe,” we were able to work out a deal with our supplier.Starting this Wednesday on the Feast of the Precious Blood, the Courageous Priest family run apostolate will be having a huge Sacred Image Framed Art Extravaganza. We will be offering seven sacred images to adorn your home. The sacred images include:
- For God so Loved the World, Sacred Heart
- Our Lady of Guadalupe
- Queen of Angels
- Song of the Angels
- Last Supper
- Our Lady of Good Counsel
We are very excited! See you tomorrow. And remember, don’t let this nation cause you lose your peace. God wins!
Strong Statements from Our Bishops
by Paul Bois, Church Militant
Following the Supreme Court’s ruling Friday that declared so-called same-sex “marriage” a constitutional right, multiple bishops have since voiced their opinions. While many have been forthright in their condemnation of the Supreme Court’s defenseless ruling, some have offered highly ambiguous statements, painting a strange moral equivalency between the faithful and faithless.
Immediately after the ruling, the USCCB issued its strongest statement yet, calling it a “tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us.” They also exclaimed that the definition of marriage will never change, regardless of what nine elected justices on the Supreme Court tell us.
Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia offered no concessions, saying that “the mistakes of the Court change nothing about the nature of men and women, and the truth of God’s Word. The task now for believers is to form our own families even more deeply in the love of God, and to rebuild a healthy marriage culture, one marriage at a time, from the debris of today’s decision.”
Archbishop Robert Carlson of St. Louis proclaimed the Supreme Court’s decision “does not alter the unassailable truth that marriage is, and always will be, the life-long, life-giving union of one man and one woman.”
The Colorado Conference of Catholic Bishops collectively condemned the ruling to redefine marriage as “gravely unjust” and that “no court, no law, and no amount of political correctness or wishful thinking can really change what marriage is.”
“The days, weeks, months and years ahead will require courage, strength and prayer,” the bishops said. “All people of good will must remain united in defense of marriage between one man and one woman, while bearing witness to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.”
In line with Colorado, the Iowa bishops said the ruling “saddens us” while comparing its injustice toRoe v. Wade in 1973. Similar statements were offered from the conferences of Ohio, Michigan andNebraska.
