Sirach, Chapter 19, Verse 24

Better are the GOD-FEARING who have little understanding than those of great intelligence who violate the Law.

 

The expression “fear of the Lord” means awe or profound respect. It does not mean literal fear of God’s power but an awe and respect for the absolute majesty of God. We should “fear” offending God not because of his just punishment but because he is all good and deserving of our love.[1]

 

Catechism of the Catholic Church


IN BRIEF

 

2392 "Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being" (FC 11).

 

2393 By creating the human being man and woman, God gives personal dignity equally to the one and the other. Each of them, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity.

 

2394 Christ is the model of chastity. Every baptized person is called to lead a chaste life, each according to his particular state of life.

 

2395 Chastity means the integration of sexuality within the person. It includes an apprenticeship in self-mastery.

 

2396 Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices.

 

2397 The covenant which spouses have freely entered into entails faithful love. It imposes on them the obligation to keep their marriage indissoluble.

 

2398 Fecundity is a good, a gift and an end of marriage. By giving life, spouses participate in God's fatherhood.

 

2399 The regulation of births represents one of the aspects of responsible fatherhood and motherhood. Legitimate intentions on the part of the spouses do not justify recourse to morally unacceptable means (for example, direct sterilization or contraception).

 

2400 Adultery, divorce, polygamy, and free union are grave offenses against the dignity of marriage.

Every Wednesday is Dedicated to St. Joseph

The Italian culture has always had a close association with St. Joseph perhaps you could make Wednesdays centered around Jesus’s Papa. Plan an Italian dinner of pizza or spaghetti after attending Mass as most parishes have a Wednesday evening Mass. You could even do carry out to help restaurants. If you are adventurous, you could do the Universal Man Plan: St. Joseph style. Make the evening a family night perhaps it could be a game night. Whatever you do make the day special.
