Fr. Schall on Mercy

Fr. Schall on Mercy
"Mercy is a response to the repentant. It does not change the unrepentant. It often hardens them. Technically, mercy extends to sin of whatever kind or species. But mercy does not forgive. God in His mercy forgives. Mercy is contingent on the sinner’s acknowledgement that he is responsible for something objectively wrong in his acts or thoughts." (Fr. James V. Schall S. J.)

She's Not a Nun

That's Carol Keehan, who still calls herself a Nun even after defying the Catholic Bishops and helping to pass Obamacare with no regard for the innocent babies who will be slaughtered as a result.

From The Cardinal Newman Society:
The University of San Francisco’s office of University Ministry will honor Sister Carol Keehan at its “Stand 4 Conference” on November 23, according to the University. She will deliver a talk entitled “Health Care as a Social Justice Issue,” despite the fact that she defied the U.S. bishops’ efforts to urge Congress to pass a healthcare bill including pro-life provisions.

“It is unspeakable that the University of San Francisco should choose to honor someone who severely damaged pro-life efforts in this nation and undermined the express will of the U.S. bishops,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society.

The University of San Francisco, by the way, is a Jesuit University.
