By Dorothy Cummings McLean, LifeSiteNews - Father John Rapisarda of Baltimore’s Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church was so disgusted by Michelle Wolf’s “Salute to Abortion” in her weekly show The Break that he wrote to Netflix to explain why he was cancelling his subscription… “There are many things wrong with this episode,” Rapisarda wrote. “However, it is clear, as the show is created and sponsored by Netflix, that listing them would do little to change hearts.”… “Suffice it to say that abortion destroys the human life in the womb and the heart of the mother.”
By Church Militant, ChurchMilitant - In a letter read aloud to parishes in May in the diocese of Great Falls-Billings, Bp. Michael Warfel explained the need to pay out $20 million in a settlement with 86 victims of priestly sex abuse… "In my judgment, it would be unfair and unjust to present and future generations to totally deplete the resources of both the Diocese and its parishes and be unable to function as the Catholic Church of Eastern Montana," he said… After explaining the resources the diocese will put towards paying off the $20 million, Warfel makes clear that "parishes are being asked to contribute to the settlement."
By Joseph G. Trabbic, Crisis Magazine - I think Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas more or less follow the Platonic notion of virtue, but there is more they would add to the story. Yes, a virtue is what helps us to perform our ergon well, but more than this we can say that a virtue is a habit. A habit is a settled disposition to act or live in a certain way. Consequently, a virtue would be a settled disposition to act or live well as human beings, that is, to do well what characterizes us as human beings.
