By Paul Murano, Church Militant - Wassel also claimed: "With the lessening of eucharistic adoration, crimes have greatly increased because Satan becomes more present and powerful, as St. Peter Julian told us." As examples, he pointed to the many innocent children being shot and killed in our schools, as well as the countless killed in abortion… Nature (as well as supernature) abhors a vacuum. As our first two parents — Adam and Eve — found out the hard way, when God is kicked out, something immediately fills the spiritual void to take His place… If Catholics were truly Catholic our abortion society would not exist.
By Dorothy Cummings McLean and Pete Baklinski, LifeSiteNews - The Bishop of San Diego has made the case that “climate change” could be considered “uniquely preeminent in Catholic social teaching” since the potential death toll due to man-made temperature rise is “larger” than abortion and “threatens the very future of humanity.”… In a speech titled “Conscience, Candidates and Discipleship in Voting,” which Bishop Robert J. McElroy delivered at the University of San Diego yesterday, the bishop said that Catholic voters need to discern where their priorities lie in the upcoming 2020 election… “Frequently in discussions of the application of Catholic social teaching to voting, the question is raised whether one issue has a unique priority among all of the other issues in its claim upon believers in the current election cycle. Some have categorized abortion in that way. Others, climate change. This question deserves deeper scrutiny,” he said.

By Dr. Jeff Mirus, Catholic Culture - Remember this suggestion that Christ’s headship is for the Church. We will see two similar references as the letter sweeps along. But now, in chapter 2, Paul wants the Ephesians, as Gentiles, to know that they too have been made alive in Christ, though they were dead through sin. Thus the old way of living must give way to the grace of Christ, for “by grace you have been saved through faith”, which is “the gift of God” (2:5,8). Paul reminds them of their former condition—that as Gentiles (non-Jews) they were not only in sin but cut off even from the promises, “having no hope and without God in the world” (2:11-12).
