A prayer of confession of sinfulness used in the Mass of the Roman Catholic ChurchConfíteor Deo omnipoténti et vobis, fratres,quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo, ópere et omissióne:mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa.Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem,omnes Angelos et Sanctos, et vos, fratres,oráre pro me ad Dóminum Deum nostrum
I confess to almighty Godand to you, my brothers and sisters,that I have greatly sinned,in my thoughts and in my words,in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,through my fault, through my fault,through my most grievous fault;therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,all the Angels and Saints,and you, my brothers and sisters,to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Catholics and the issue of contraception
And another great article from the New York Times columnist, Gail Collins.
The church is not a democracy and majority opinion really doesn’t matter. Catholic dogma holds that artificial contraception is against the law of God. The bishops have the right — a right guaranteed under the First Amendment — to preach that doctrine to the faithful. They have a right to preach it to everybody. Take out ads. Pass out leaflets. Put up billboards in the front yard.
The problem here is that they’re trying to get the government to do their work for them. They’ve lost the war at home, and they’re now demanding help from the outside.
The churches themselves don’t have to provide contraceptive coverage. Neither do organizations that are closely tied to a religion’s doctrinal mission. We are talking about places like hospitals and universities that rely heavily on government money and hire people from outside the faith.
