Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

Selling Out on Truth

If you get five free minutes, read this article on The Catholic Thing. It is about the progression from fudging on truth into abandonment of love. It is critical of mainstream Catholic relief agencies, whose workers are mostly trained as secular social workers without an eye on God's will and the truth of Catholic moral teaching. Accordingly, these agencies sometimes end up mucking around in the same moral relativism and general nonsense of their secular counterparts.

Coincidentally, Justin Timberlake of all people, has a rapped song with the line, "If you never know truth, you never know love." Holy cow! That might be one of the most profound metaphysical and moral statements possible. I've mentioned it before in this blog, but it it bears repeating: truth is found in amazing places.
