Courageous Bishop Paprocki Shows Us How To Contend for the Truth About Marriage Comments

The Bishop explained the truth about marriage. He presented the Natural Law basis for the defense of true marriage as normative for every society and culture. As well as being a good Bishop and top shelf theologian, he is a good lawyer. He explained the Civil and Canon Law issues surrounding the defense of marriage and defended our right to contend for this position in the publlic square.  This was a textbook ... Continue Reading

    Marriage,same sex marriage and the Catholic Church is the best article that I have read on the subject. Print it and post it on line for a long time so many can read this. Send a copy to the White House.

    A standing ovation for Bishop Paprocki. He sounds like a real church leader. This is the first I heard of him. I hope we have more Bishops like him. The Church desperately needs leaders like him..

    Bp. Thomas Paprocki celebrated Mass at the Courage/EnCourage conference a few years ago at the Univ. of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein,IL. He spoke about the courage of Mary Stachowicz which angered the young man who then decided to murder her and hide her body. Her murder was dismissed as not worth reporting by the Boston media.
    It would be enlightening for faithful Catholics in the Archdiocese of Boston to hear about this tragic murder. Unfortunately the major influence in this archdiocese is that of some theologians at Boston College, such as John "Harry" McDargh and his supporters including Jesuits on the staff of the Theology Dept., who present the way of same-sex sex and transgender actions as "normal"and "acceptable behavior for Catholics",e.g. as presented in the assigned book Embodiment: Approach to Sexuality and Christian Theology by James B. Nelson for the 2013 Summer course by John McDargh who is "married" to his male partner..
    Cardinal O'Malley desperately needs to invite courageous priests such as Bp. Paprocki to
    bring the light of truth to both the students at Boston College and all of us here in the Boston Archdiocese. Sr. Jeannine Gramick has been invited by some of the Jesuit dissidents and the priests at the Paulist Center, as well as those at Arch St., and other Catholic colleges, to present her dissident beliefs which are presented in the PFLAG document:"Is it a Sin?". It is time these priests invited Bp. Paprocki to come and tell the truth. But they don't have the courage!
