Catholics Must Defend Marriage

This is one of the best posts I have read in a long time. Published by a man who is both Welsh (hurrah!) and Catholic (huzzah!) it deals with much of concern to Catholics in what our government is seeking to do viz marriage.

It also celebrates the fact that two Catholic leaders have spoken out in defence of marriage. We, as lay Catholics, have a duty to support these leaders, and to ask all our Bishops to come to the defence of marriage in no uncertain terms.

Prior to Christmas I was overjoyed to hear two sermons that utterly condemned homosexuality and the idea of 'homosexual marriage' by a priest with the love of God in his heart. However, if the church is to lead the way, then every Bishop must inform every priest (and every lay member of the Church militant) that it is our duty to make a stand to defend marriage.

Not to do so would be a grave sin of omission.

  1. Dear friend,

    ROSARY TOMORROW, 5th February, 12 am GMT, FOR THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE

    Tomorrow (5th of February), the first bill proposing same-sex marriage is going to be heard in British Parliament. I ask you to join me, and many others, in the praying of a rosary tomorrow to ask for Our Lady's intercession in this. We are aiming to pray together at 12 am, noon (GMT) tomorrow. Pray whatever you are able to do - a decade, a Mystery, the full Rosary, even a short prayer to Our Lady -to beg for her help.

    It is our hope that if Catholics pray together for this, we can gain Our Lady's intercession in this dark hour.

    Please pass the message on any way you can! Email, blog, text, social media. 12 am tomorrow - a worldwide rosary for the defense of marriage.

    God Bless.
