This Week in Catholic Liturgy: Is Christ Divided?
Judging by the proliferation of denominations it would seem that Christ is divided. Not Christ, but Christians. The points of contention are many and impossible to ignore, especially in matters pertaining to human sexuality. This weekend marks the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, a manifestation of just how fundamental the divisions have gotten. But "the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light" (Isaiah), and they who attempt to walk in the path marked out by the Catholic Church--the way of repentance--will not stumble and will not be lost in the end.
