Where I Stand

I am a Roman Catholic.

I believe all that the Church teaches.

I assent to every teaching that the Church proposes through the Magisterium.

I am pro-life.

I teach what the Church teaches about sexuality and marriage:

  • It is between one man and one woman.
  • God crowns the union of a baptized couple with a life-long bond.
  • The marriage relationship is the norm for sexual activity; every other form is abnormal.
  • Every exercise of the marital act should be natural; the only acceptable methods of birth regulation are abstinence and Natural Family Planning.

I believe that the ordination of women to the priesthood is impossible.

I am opposed to a change in the discipline of priestly celibacy in the Roman Rite.

I judge that the use of female altar servers in the United States discourages young men from considering a vocation to the priesthood and religious life.

I say the Mass according to the norms of the Church.

I am not thrilled with the new translation of the Mass, but it is better than the old translation and far better than what might have come to us from an all-American "translation."
