It's August already, the last month of summer, and the month that we associate with the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Three months ago, in May, we celebrated the Month of the Blessed Virgin Mary herself, and in December we'll celebrate that month to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In two months (October) we'll honor Her Most Holy Rosary.
I hope that a Marian month like this one may She assist me in obtaining the Catholic wife I have been looking for. Most of the time, I wonder how the few couples in my parish who have been married recently or will be married soon got together? Could it have been they have prayed the Rosary? Could it have been she was dressing in Imitation of our Blessed Mother? Could it have been they met in a Latin Mass parish (for which would have to be the case for me)?

We, as (future) parents, have to prepare them domestically for Confirmation because most schools and parish religious education programs are not aligned with the Magisterium. Presently, "Catholic Schools" refer to private schools, which were formerly Catholic, but are now Novus Ordo-ized by giving out condoms, saying that abortion is OK, and for students of false religions whose parents have $$$. Some students, however, receive athletic scholarships regardless of academic ability; this happens not only at the collegiate level but at high school as well. These schools, while only opposite sex dates are allowed at "proms" (sexual dances), often promote homosexuality and diversity.

In Conclusion, you must obey the Catholic teachings as law. The Ten Commandments are not the Ten Suggestions. The Six Precepts of the Church are not the Six Favors of the Church. Nor is the Meatless Friday rule, nor headcoverings for women in church.
