Many people, Catholic and Non-Catholic, object to certain teachings of the Catholic Church. This is nothing new. Fr. Bill talks about the up and coming readings of the Sunday Mass, what Jesus taught and how His audience responded. Fr. Bill then compares it to the objections to current teachings of the Church, the demand of some people that the Church change its teachings, and the penchant for Catholics to leave the Church over them.
At the Baptism of Jesus, God the Father declares from Heaven, “You are my beloved Son…” but there is another who can make the same declaration. Fr. Bill discusses the importance of St. Joseph to faith, and as an example against the worldliness of the modern era.
Many refer to Euthanasia as “Mercy Killing”, “Death with Dignity” asserting a person’s “‘Right’ to Die”.
Fr. Bill discusses how Euthanasia is actually a grave offense against the Ten Commandments, a violation of Human Dignity, which may deprive the sick of the greatest blessing they may be receiving within their own lifetime.
