Quote for the Day

When Fox WFLD reporter Darlene Hill asked Mike Ditka about smoking in restaurants he responded, "You talk about banning smoking. Okay, why don't we ban abortion? Let's talk about things that are really important. You know you talk about, well, you think one thing can harm your health; the other one takes a life."

Quote of the Day

"The judgment of one's state of grace obviously belongs only to the person involved, since it is a question of examining one's conscience. However, in cases of outward conduct which is seriously, clearly and steadfastly contrary to the moral norm, the Church, in her pastoral concern for the good order of the community and out of respect for the sacrament, cannot fail to feel directly involved. The Code of Canon Law refers to this situation of a manifest lack of proper moral disposition when it states that those who “obstinately persist in manifest grave sin” are not to be admitted to Eucharistic communion."

~ Pope John Paul II, "ECCLESIA DE EUCHARISTIA", April 17, 2003
