US House Passes Respect for Marriage Act

In the July 19 vote, Democrats in favor of the bill were joined by 74 Republicans. The bill would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage federally as the union of a man and a woman and permitted states not to recognize same-sex marriages contracted in other states.

On Suffering and Hope and Forever

‘In the Eucharist the sacrifice of Christ becomes also the sacrifice of the members of his Body. The lives of the faithful, their praise, sufferings, prayer, and work, are united with those of Christ and with his total offering, and so acquire a new value. Christ’s sacrifice present on the altar makes it possible for all generations of Christians to be united with his offering.’ (CCC 1368)
