The milestones of adulthood for today’s millennials: economic security and finishing school — not rushing to get married and have a family.
And once they are married, young women in America are less likely to see homemaking as a career.

In this letter I’m focusing on the economic business contributions that Catholic culture contributes to our economy. I’m leaving out schools, hospital’s and the like.
Starting with January 1 and New Years Day
New years day on January 1 comes from Julius Caesar and Pope Gregory XIII.
I could not find a monetary figure of the spending done on New Years Eve so I estimated the spending to be around 15 billion dollars.
Valentine’s Day is estimate to be around 20 billion dollars.
St. Patrick’s Day I’m estimating it to be about 3 billion dollars.
Mardi Gras, I’m estimating this to be around 50 million dollars.
Easter Sunday, estimating it to be about 5 billion dollars.
Halloween, is estimated to be about 5.9 billion dollars.
And the biggest money spender of them all, Christmas. The estimated spending for Christmas for 2016 is put at ONE TRILLION DOLLARS.
So these Catholic bashers who are laughing all the way to the bank should move to some communist country and live in their own dream world.
In Christ, Joseph

The church has always reached out to sinners, but does not condone sinful behavior. In as much as homosexual behavior and abortion ranks among the capital sins, so does oppression of the poor and defrauding laborers of their wages. I seldom hear the level of outrage leveled at gays and abortion which should be equally leveled at these other two capital sins just as prevalent in today’s society, if not more so.
It’s never really been that way from the beginning. The State violates the First Amendment every time it grants a divorce to someone who was married in a Religious Institution. The Religious Institutions don’t sue because the State provides subsidies to the these Institutions.This being the case if a Religious School wants to exclude Secular People from admission to their Schools they have the right to do so, providing they do not accept state subsides. End of Story.
