Diocese News from The Northern Cross

Father Mike Schmitz: Mom should know her place in son’s marital challenges

Question: My son and his wife have been married nine years and have four children. His wife homeschools their children and wants three more kids, but my son is exhausted when he gets home, and his wife expects him to “take over” while she “takes a break.” She says that the church demands that they have more children. I would support my son if this was all too much and he asked for a divorce.

Answer: Thank you for reaching out and asking this question. There are many factors at play here, and clearly there is a lot here that I am unaware of. Since I do not know your son or his wife, I am only able to make a couple of assumptions. What I will offer you is based off of these assumptions, so please keep that in mind when you read these words.

Bishop Paul Sirba: Bishops’ meeting offered resources for responding to persecution

How do Christians respond to persecution? I refer you to an excellent report prepared in partnership with the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture, the Religious Freedom Institute, and Georgetown University’s Religious Freedom Research Project. Aid to the Church in Need closely collaborated as well.

“Under Caesar’s Sword: Christian Response to Persecution” is a project that began in 2014 involving world class scholars and first-hand research on Christian responses to persecution in 25 countries. There is a great video documentary accessible on the project’s website, ucs.nd.edu.
