    Aleteia ^ | May 4, 2015 | TOM HOOPES
    In the book of Revelation, when Jesus catalogues the problems in each of several churches he gives a lot of great advice. Some churches need to hold fast to what you have others need to return to your first love. But when he comes to the church of Laodicea, he has nothing good to say: I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth (Revelation 4:15-16). Jesus prefers bad Christians...

    On the eve of His death, knowing that He was about to depart from His friends, Jesus said to them: Remain in Me, as I remain in you.

    HE BEST AGE to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation is a matter of discussion in my diocese, as it is in many others. There are advocates for quite a wide range of ages, from as early as Baptism to the latter years of high school. Reasonable arguments can be made in favor of almost any age between these two mileposts. But which age is best? Anyone involved in Catholic education/catechesis will know the struggle it is to keep young people in religious education after their Confirmation. A common tactic in many local Churches has been to raise the age at...

The conservative Catholics are best represented by Senator Rick Santorum. A life-long Catholic, Santorum became more serious about his faith after marrying.

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Samuel New International Version (NIV) 3Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land. 4The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem, while Saul gathered all Israel and set up camp at Gilboa. 5When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. 6He inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets....

    The opening prayer in the Alabama Senate today included a reference to the same-sex marriage controversy swirling in Alabama.

Gonnella said he disagreed with a federal district judge's ruling earlier this year to overturn Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage. Some probate judges issued licenses to same-sex couples for...
