Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The Church must be self-critical before it presumes to be critical of others.

Views

The family is the basic human community through which persons are nurtured and sustained in mutual love, responsibility, respect, and fidelity.
