    After all of the talk from Pope Francis and Catholic bloggers about marriage and the family in recent month, I decided it was time to try it out for myself.

    We’ve all heard that quote thrown around and if you’re like me you’re probably getting sick of the quote being used to downplay the gravity of sin, particularly sexual sins. But I wonder if there’s more to that famous quote than many of us have noticed.

    We tend to focus on the word judge. It often gets associated with Jesus’ quote “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” But what if the word that Pope Francis had on his mind when he uttered that now famous phrase wasn’t judge, but I?

    If we are bored with the Mass and stop paying attention to it, we miss out on what is the entire miracle of being a Catholic Christian. We enter the sanctuary of a Catholic church and sacramentally step in to the presence of the Almighty Divine. We come to Mass to worship God, not to be entertained. And when we acknowledge that reality, our actions and attitude in prayer change.

    The Supreme Court’s decision has changed some things, but it hasn’t changed our responsibility to love people with same-sex attraction or their children, and it has given us an even greater opportunity to shape cultural perceptions of marriage by living a better alternative.

    Most of us are sick of hearing news about two reality stars who we love to either praise or hate. But what we’re almost all forgetting is that, as different as they are, they are both fallen human beings who need love, forgiveness, and prayer more than anything else.

    It has now been ten years since Revenge of the Sith hit theaters, and I’m still uncovering more of its depth with every viewing. While not the best Star Wars movie made, I think it is the most complex and interesting of the six films so far.

    Fear has caused us to react in the worst possible ways to the news in Indiana this week. But is growing fear between the two increasingly divided worldviews seen in America only going to get worse, or is there a way that we can heal the open wounds?
