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.)

Need a Scholarship? Join the LGBT Group.


As we race toward the bottom, we find here at Elmhurst College in Illinois, yet another manifestation of our cultural decay.

"Elmhurst College put a question on its admissions application that won’t appear on any other school's application.

"Would you consider yourself to be a member of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) community?”

"That optional question makes Elmhurst the first school in the country to ask applicants about their sexual orientation or gender identity, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

"Gary Rold, the dean of students at Elmhurst, stressed the question falls in line with the campus’ mission statement to increase diversity.

"A 'yes' answer could put students in line to qualify for a scholarship worth one-third of tuition at the private, liberal arts school affiliated with the United Church of Christ, said Rold."
