Remember too, on this day of Resurrection: You take His Body into yours as your saving grace; as the only food that will sustain you in this veil of tears. But you take His Body into yours not merely so He is in you--but also that you are in Him; so that when he rises, you are raised with Him. A blessed Easter, all!

A distinction: the suffering that results from the practice of vice is a pleasure. That is why it is so dangerous. It is literally the embodiment of "too much of a good thing."

Here's my question to the Bishops, who made a full throated defense against the Administration's effort to infringe upon the rights of Churches to teach and live their creeds--and to protect their institutional sister-institutions to be free of governmental infringement. What about me, your Eminences? I work for a secular institution that will enact the Administration's mandate requiring that my premiums pay for other people's contraceptions, sterilizations, and abortions. So what if the Administration has said that insurers will...
