The Worcester Diocese should have held onto this faithful priest
La Salette Journey ^ | July 1, 2012 | Paul Melanson

Some years ago, a faithful and dedicated priest decided to leave the Diocese of Worcester and become a Chaplain for the United States Army. During a conversation back in 2000, this priest-friend told me that he had had enough of the nonsense within the diocese. This was after he presided over a graveside service for my father.

This same faithful priest has a letter in this week's "Catholic" [when they feel like it] Free Press. As usual, it is an excellent letter. But then, this priest reads the life of Jesus Christ. The letter is entitled "Choose life and love, not moral decay." Fr. Anthony Kazarnowicz writes:

"According to a survey (CFP, June 1), 83% of Catholics consider it 'morally acceptable' to use contraceptives to prevent pregnancy, 'despite church teachings to the contrary.' The Church teaches that God designed sex for bonding between a husband and wife and for procreation. In deciding for ourselves that it is 'morally acceptable' to unnaturally close sex to life, we have made ourselves (not God, or those whom Jesus placed in authority over us) the final arbiters of what is good and evil. It's Satan's temptation to Adam and Eve all over again.

My maternal grandmother’s parents were good Catholics. They had 22 children (twins and triplets run in the female line).

My grandmother was herself one of a twin. She had four sets of twins and four single babies.

Neither my mother nor my aunt had twins, but then it skips generations.

In my generation, did we all use contraceptives? You betcha!
