1. The introduction of divorce in any society abolishes the right to life-long indissoluble
marriage by making 'for life' become 'as long as'.

2. Inhibitions: Some spouses, fearing the ever-present threat of divorce, pull their punches
out of fear of provoking their partner into leaving.

3. The absence of divorce allows people to enter into marriage with a greater sense of commitment, and within marriage they will take their commitment more seriously. Where marriage is permanent couples are more inclined to struggle to make a success of their marriage; with divorce, they are more inclined to give up.

4. The absence of divorce invariably means that individuals are more cautious in selecting a
partner because marriage is seen as permanent.

5. The unity and indissolubility of marriage ensure a greater security and stability in the

6. It is not simply failed and problematic marriages that are dissolved; divorce also de…



• Human: Sexuality is essentially human; there has never been a normal human being who
was not sexual.

• Spiritualising: There is a danger in modern Catholic theology of a spiritualising approach
to sexuality and sexual intercourse in marriage.

To transfer human sexuality up to the exclusively spiritual level is just as untrue to human nature as is transferring it down to the
exclusively animal level.

• One Body: Becoming one person with another human being includes becoming not only
one spirit and one mind, but also one body.

Married love is agape, the love of the spouse for the spouse's sake, but it is also more than agape. Married love is philia, the love of the spouse as a friend, but it is also more than philia.

Married love is eros, the love of the spouse for one's own sake, but it is also more than eros.

• Selfish Love: Married love that leads two to become one body is never exclusively selfish
love, but it is unquestionably in part selfish love.

Cardinal Kasper: Quit throwing around the word ‘heretic’

 German Cardinal Walter Kasper, retired president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity says think twice before calling someone a “heretic.”

That is the seemingly simple advice from Cardinal Walter Kasper, the prominent German theologian whose ideas have influenced Pope Francis, especially his view that mercy should be the guiding principle in pastoral practice.

Speaking in an interview with Alessandro Gisotti at Vatican News, the 85-year-old prelate addressed controversy about “Amoris Laetitia,” the pope’s 2016 letter on families, which includes a provision that allows some divorced and remarried Catholics to receive Communion.

“First of all I would like to say that debate in the church is necessary. There is no need to fear debate!” the cardinal said.

But he said the debate on “Amoris Laetitia” has become too heated—even though the “people of God” have accepted the teaching.

“Debate in the church is necessar…


3 things in life that in life that will never come back...


Your watching is ticking whether you know it or not.


Like unfeathering a chicken then throwing them in can’t return them back to the chicken.


Every challenge is an moment of improvement.

3 things in life that should never be lost


Nobody will never hand you peace, but your life how you keep your inner system thinking.


The worst thought that can pass your mind is lack of hope.


Learn to tell your self that you have limits. Don’t allow people blow your trumpet of long have limit and you need to know them. Don’t become a politician who promises to build a bridge where there is no river.

3 things in life that are most valuable:


You can’t give what you don’t have. If you need love say it, don’t assume the other knows and ought to respond. You will wait forever.


Whatever God you conceive Him to be have a good constant touch.




The parish council is a group of people, chosen from various families, who come together with a Christian vision of a community of which we call ecclesial parish. The administration of the parish is based on effectiveness, efficiency and relevancy of the parish priest and his collaborators, working together, functioning well and with high sense of life quality assessments. The bishop is the main pastor and administrator of economic resources of the diocese. They are elected members baptized and fully immersed within the community who have rights and obligations above all to live an authentic Christian life as a witness to the entire personal experience and maturity. The preoccupation should be to activate the role of parish council and to function as an ecclesial unit for the help of evangelization. They don’t assume posts, they assume a service that is specific for a Christian community, they have to collaborate with the parish priest, not to form small groups pro or against the paris…

Parameters of the Church's Mission Ad Gentes
37. By virtue of Christ's universal mandate, the mission ad gentes knows no boundaries. Still, it is possible to determine certain parameters within which that mission is exercised, in order to gain a real grasp of the situation.
(a) Territorial limits.
Missionary activity has normally been defined in terms of specific territories. The Second Vatican Council acknowledged the territorial dimension of the mission ad gentes,59 a dimension which even today remains important for determining responsibilities, competencies and the geographical limits of missionary activity. 
Certainly, a universal mission implies a universal perspective. Indeed, the Church refuses to allow her missionary presence to be hindered by geographical boundaries or political barriers. 
But it is also true that missionary activity ad gentes, being different from the pastoral care of the faithful and the new evangelization of the non-practicing, is exercised within …

The Al-Shabaab angle component in the North-Eastern Kenya

Introduction Religious fundamentalism is a hot topic to handle today especially in our volatile unpredictable   environment that is being rocked by terrorism, suicide bombers and general global security upgrades both nationally and internationally. In this paper we want to venture into what exactly is religious fundamentalism and its root causes, to understand a pastoral approach in a society cocktailed by major religions (Christians, Muslim and Judaism,) who profess in the same God, but their way of relation is a bit intense, departing in different directions with no intention of uniting but a close co-existence amidst soft and hard intolerance attitudes.
       Religious fundamentalism has its context and environment of operation. In this research of North-Eastern Kenya with a group called Al-Shabaab. An infiltrated terrorist group with lethal impact that come with untold sufferings to the innocent Kenyans on their soil. 
Religious fundamentalism is usually religious movement or point …
