Natural Law

"No law made by man can overturn that of the Creator without dramatically affecting society in its very foundation."
"Weakening the family is punishing society" [Natural law] "has rules that supersede all human laws (and) does not allow for derogations by anyone."
"The law inscribed in our nature is the true guarantee offered to everyone to be able to live freely and in dignity." Pope Benedict XVI

Read the last letter to the Editor of the NOR at this link: http://www.newoxfordreview.org/letters.jsp?did=0595-letters

A valid point which needs to be considered.

Be sure to go all the way to the bottom of the Letters, to find Paul's excellent explanation (from St. Thomas) about the right approach to wrongs done by those under our care, or in our Church.

Thanks for the kind note. And (more importantly) thank God for the Angelic Doctor and his brilliant eloquence...how I cherish his genius.

May I make a request of readers of this Blog? The Diocese of Manchester NH is actually considering bringing the old rite back (see here: http://lasalettejourney.blogspot.com/2007/02/support-this-catholic-priest-in-his.html

Fr. Cooper (who has done his share to promote life and oppose abortion) really deserves our prayers and our support.

I am trying to reach as many people as possible with this news. The return of the old rite in New Hampshire would mark a significant development in the fight against the many evils currently plaguing this diocese.

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless this endeavour.
