Trump’s Travel Ban E.O.-Why Both Sides May Be Right

The last paragraph in Section 1 of the EO says: In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of [...]


After an election, people and groups who have reason to hope for preferment from the victor are liable to interpret every appointment as a favor. They do not stop to consider that preferment is a two-edged sword, if preferring someone to a position of honor in some executive department removes him from a position of [...]


To conserve the mandate of Christ’s example of Love

The word “conserve” is said to take root from the Latin word, conservare, which is a compound of the prefix com- meaning “with, together or beside”, and servare meaning to keep watch, maintain, or guard.

Something Worse than a Democrat like Trump

For years Donald Trump proclaimed that he was “pro-choice” on abortion. In his book The America We Deserve  he wrote: “I support a woman’s right to choose, but I am uncomfortable with the procedures. When Tim Russert asked me on Meet the Press if I would ban partial-birth abortion, my pro-choice instincts led me to [...]


Romney vs Trump re Income Tax Disclosure

Most people have heard some version of the old African saying “When elephants fight, the grass gets trampled.” Mitt Romney’s attack on Donald Trump for not releasing his tax return warrants adapting that thought to the politics of our day: “When the elitists stage a fight, the Constitution gets trampled.”  According to the Constitution, only [...]



FOR HE IS RISEN   Today I awakened thinking about hope.  Though love is the greatest of the three cardinal virtues, hope is the middle term that translates the trust that lies at the heart of faith into the sure and certain expectation of God’s present and forthcoming preservation of our lives.  This frees us [...]
