Quote of the day

“In our ecclesiastical region (Buenos Aires) there are priests who don’t baptize the children of single mothers because they weren’t conceived in the sanctity of marriage. These are today’s hypocrites. Those who clericalise the church. Those who separate the people of God from salvation. And this poor girl who, rather than returning the child to sender, had the courage to carry it into the world, must wander from parish to parish so that it’s baptised!” – Pope Francis

Quote of the day

“Our Holy Mother Church calls this Season before Easter a ‘penitential season.’ One of the main messages of Our Lady of Lourdes was: ‘Penance, penance, penance.’ This means: we must try to make up for our sins. With every sin there is a punishment as part of justice (break a window, fix it; sin, do penance); and not everyone has fulfilled this (including possibly ourselves!).
