By Fr. Shenan Boquet, Human Life International - We may not always understand. But as St. Pope John Paul II assured us, God never commands the impossible: “As the Tradition of the Church has constantly taught, God does not command the impossible, but every commandment also entails a gift of grace which helps human freedom to fulfill it.” “Yet,” he added, in order to follow the Church’s teachings on sexuality, “constant prayer, frequent recourse to the sacraments and the exercise of conjugal chastity are needed.”
By Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, Catholic Exchange - By adding new values to created things, we try to earn God’s praise for ourselves “as a workman who does not need to be ashamed of his work” (2 Tim. 2:15). We fulfill this task by grasping God’s intention fully and recognizing His goals. In every work we must, with the help of our rational nature, sense what God intends in His work of creation, so that we may harmonize the rhythm of our work with God’s.
