St. Thomas Aquinas, the greatest theologian who ever lived, wrote that the Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian faith." Without the Eucharist, Christianity doesn't really make sense. If Communion isn't the real, true presence of Christ, really truly His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, then we can't be saved. Jesus said that whoever ate his flesh and drank his blood had life, and He would raise him up on the last day. Paul said that taking the Euch
During the Year of Faith the Holy Father asks us to rekindle the fullness of the TRUTH in our own hearts. Let's start with refreshing our understanding of the Holy Eucharist. We'll discuss not just the theology behind it, as well as the Catholic Culture behind Holy Communion; how we treat it, how we regard it, etc. Let's get back to basics!

Part Four of Awe of Life
I would like to just touch on two more important moral matters pertaining to the sanctity of life:
And Embryonic stem cell research
We have to first reiterate what I presented in greater detail in previous episode.
That the gift and power of our sexuality is ordered toward marriage between one man and one woman and each marital sexual act must include both the element of unity, oneness, and pleasure… along with the potential life-giving side of the act. Should we accept one benefit and power of this awesome gift from God, while rejecting the other?
In addition to a discussion of the daily Mass readings and our regular features, every Monday on Following The Truth is devoted to "What Catholics REALLY Believe". Join Catholic evangelist Gary Zimak as he continues his discussion on the Sacraments. On this episode, we'll look at the "Sacrament of Sacraments", the Eucharist! Using simple (but substantial) teaching, Gary will attempt to clear up some of the mystery about Jesus' REAL presence in the
Part Three of Awe of Life
My wife, Kathleen and I have many times been challenged about the size of our family by people, even by relatives, who were often concerned and perhaps had the best of intentions. One of the greatest means of persuasion to help them understand that our choice to have a large family was right and good and in accordance with God’s will would be to take out a picture of our complete family, or to point the children out if they are near by. Then I would ask which of these children should have been our last? Where should we have stopped? Which of these children should not have been born? Which of these children do you think has been brought into existence in opposition to God’s will?

Awe of Life Part Two
What do you suggest for couples seeking to discern what God asks of them through the Church's call to responsible parenthood?
Here we are discussing openness to life within marriage. The answer to this question lies in the law of love, and also, of course, in hope and trust as opposed to fear, which so infects the world today. Kathleen and I made the regretful mistake of beginning our marriage succumbing to the lie of artificial contraception, including the use of the abortifacient pill. By the sublime grace of God we converted from this error, and have been showered with the undeserved grace of having thus far 19 children, 14 living on earth and five in heaven.
The Catholic Church teaches that it is necessary that each and every marriage act remain ordered per se to the procreation of human life -- Catechism No. 2366.
Why would the Church teach this? What business it of theirs you might ask. Ok, I can understand this initial reaction. Let’s see if I can shed a little light on this question.
In other words, each marital act must include both the element of unity, oneness, and pleasure… along with the potential life-giving side of the act. Should we accept one benefit and power of the gift while rejecting the other ? This calls for openness to the gift of life and trust in God’s providence.
The Church does of course allow for couples to space the births of their children for just reasons via natural family planning, which could be the subject of another program.
So the subjective question comes down to married couples discovering the will of God each month, each cycle of fertility, regarding their openness and readiness to embrace and be open to co-creating new life in partnership with God, of bringing a beautiful new person into existence in time and eternity, an unrepeatable, unique human person ...
Pouring it Out Program One
What it means to pour it all our for Jesus and souls (Matthew 19)
Consider Matthew 19:1&-22: "Now someone approached him [Jesus] and said, 'Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?" Note the question. The man is asking what good he himself must do. He seems to be asking what the bare essentials are that he is required to do. This, unfortunately, is an example of dripping as opposed to pouring. "He answered him, 'Why do you ask me about the good? There is only
One who is good.'" In other words we ourselves cannot muster any good. We are only able to be good or accomplish good through the One
who is good, our Blessed Lord, Jesus....
I am sad to report that Kathleen and I are potentially guilty of abortion ourselves in that we used the Pill for a period of time before we started our family. We long ago repented of and regret this objectively grave sin, which has been washed away in the Precious Blood of our merciful Jesus.
You see whatever you may think about the morality of so-called contraception, the scientific fact, that many are totally unaware of, is that The Pill as well as some other forms of so called birth control, does have an abortifacient property wherein break-through fertilization may occur while, while at the same time, the Pill has made the lining of the womb (the endometrium) hostile toward the implantation of the fertilized egg—which is indeed a very small, unique, gifted, unrepeatable human being—thus causing the death of the baby.[i]
Some may argue that there is not a human life present; but if there is not a human life, what in the world is it? The Church teaches the truth that life begins at conception, which is further defined as fertilization. At that moment, when the sperm fertilizes the egg, God infuses an immortal soul into the child. When else would life begin other than at the beginning?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you” (Jeremiah 1:5, JB).

More on Healing through Mercy and Forgiveness.
When Jesus forgives He forgets. He does not hold our sins against us. Can our all-knowing God actually forget our sins? Yes, only because He chooses to do so, and promises that He will. When we repent, our sins are blotted out, erased. “I it is, I it is, who must blot out everything and not remember your sins” (Isaiah 43:25, JB).
What sins of ours do we think could possibly be too heavy for our infinitely strong God? Let’s not be foolish and proud! Come to His infinite mercy!
How much does Jesus love us? He chose to bear the scars on His hands, feet, and side into heaven. I believe He is constantly showing His wounds to His Father saying, “See how much I love them!” He tells us through His prophet, “See, I have branded you on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah 49:16, JB). When Jesus looks at His hands, He looks at us through the holes with unimaginable love! How inexpressibly happy He is when we take advantage of His mercy, won at so high a price!
