By Joseph Enders, Church Militant - A growing trend in religious circles is the rise of the so-called religious left. They adhere to radical social doctrines of Liberation Theology, black theology and feminist theology — all three of which reject crucial parts of Catholic Church teaching...

By Michael Pakaluk, The Catholic Thing - We often refer to St. Joseph as the “foster father” or “guardian” of our Lord.

Texans are competent to manage “their own personal safety,” and by so doing they help to manage the safety of others, Abbott said. “It’s a reminder that individual safety is managed every day as a matter of personal responsibility rather than by government mandate. Individual responsibility is a corollary to individual freedom. We can have both.” He further advised, “Texans should continue following medical advice on preventing COVID just as they do on other medical issues.”
