The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have launched a new website entitled: Marriage: Unique for a Reason (www.marriageuniqueforareason.org). It is a fabulous place to visit and learn of the Church’s teachings on marriage and its defense as a union of one man and one woman. I will include a link under “Good Websites” at the lower right of this page and have also added a banner linking you to it below.
It it contains much needed information that will help all of us to understand the natural and sacramental nature of marriage, and provide us language that we may use to speak to others about this crucial issue of our day.
The bishops of Minnesota have asked all deacons and priests, as well as the laity, to stand up and defend marriage in our State. We have a constitutional amendment slated to be voted on by the people of the State next year. I beg you to inform yourselves, vote and explain eloquently how vital it is for society to uphold marriage as a natural and divine institution between a man and woman oriented toward the well being of children.
