As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him,
And he got up and followed him.

Where do we go from here?
With the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage, Catholics, parishes and religious institutions face an unknown road ahead
Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz OSV Newsweekly
The recent decision by the Supreme Court to change the definition of marriage requires a response. I see the decision as a "tragic error" not because I want to demean any person but rather because of my concern for the common good and the good of all. Jesus, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. The Church, seeking to witness to Christ in every age, welcomes all and treats every person with equal dignity. We agree with those who seek change in the definition of marriage in one thing: that every person has equal dignity. We disagree about the nature of marriage.
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our defense against the wickedness
and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan
and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
