A place to learn, mingle, and share

This room is for the discussion of current events,cultural issues and politics especially in relation to Catholic values.

Saint Thomas More was martyred during the Protestant Reformation for standing firm in the Faith and not recognizing the King of England as the Supreme Head of the Church.

In one of the 2010 issues of the Comboni Missionary newsletter (a Catholic missionary organization that uses lay people to go out on 1-2 year service missions in various parts of the world), they included a very short article about Gandhi entitled Gandhi's Deadly Sins. (I think it speaks to our times!)


Mohandas Gandhi, one of the most influential social and political activists of our times, considered these traits to be the most spiritually perilous to humanity:

Wealth without Work

Pleasure without Conscience

Science without Humanity

Knowledge without Character

Politics without Principle

Commerce without Morality

Worship without Sacrifice



I have to say that I totally agree. Just think about how this applies to the dark days we are living in now! Perhaps we need another Gandhi (perhaps a Catholic one) to lead us out of the darkness?

Looks like the Democrat Party Platform to me!

They are so succinctly put. Very good. If we change the word "without" to "with," the world would be so
much better off.
