Why the Death Penalty is Wrong

Note: The Connecticut General Assembly began debate on the future of capital punishment. This is an issue that creates conflict among all manner of communities – including our Catholic communities. Please read this essay, reflect on it with a heart free of preconceptions, prejudices, and empathy for victims of violent crime. Then call your representatives…and I…

Selling Abortion, Part II

Perhaps it is coincidence that the Citizen began to address this issue recently. Perhaps not. God is always speaking to us, I just happened to be listening at the moment.
