Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Thanks United States Conference of Catholic Bishops For Clarification on Role at World Youth Day

July 27, 2011


SOUTH BEND, IN – The faithful who work at would like to thank the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for drawing attention to our existence and scheduled contributions to the upcoming World Youth Day events to be held in Madrid, Spain on August 17 and 19, as well as the launch of its new pilot program striving to address tough issues concerning sexuality and morals facing Catholic youth today,

While we regret that an unlisted assistant to the Secretariat of the Committee for Laity of the USCCB has declined to give us her approval "to participate in the cultural program" of WYD, we prefer to rely upon the higher authority of Our Lord Himself, and an Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church as we do what we can to increase the authentic Faith and Morals of the Catholic Church, and fulfill our duty:
"The laity derive the right and duty to the apostolate from their union with Christ the head; incorporated into Christ's Mystical Body through Baptism and strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit through Confirmation, they are assigned to the apostolate by the Lord Himself." Cf. Second Vatican Council, Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, Apostolicam Actuositatem, 3.
For every press release that is issued mentioning our existence, more and more tangible interest in is generated on the part of ordinary Catholic faithful simply seeking straightforward information on just how to be really Catholic – not only in word, but more importantly in deed - which all too often is lacking on the part of some Dioceses in too many parishes to the grave detriment of souls. For the significant increased attention drawn to the exclusive on-line product found on, we are very grateful.

The faithful at are in full compliance with the universal norms of the Code of Canon Law, the universal legislation of the Roman Catholic Church, which in no canon muzzles ordinary Catholic faithful from using themselves on the web as genuine instruments of dissemination of Catholic principles. As a result, we are puzzled as to what would motivate the USCCB from precluding Catholics in good standing with the Church from sharing authentic Catholic Faith and Morals in a updated format resonating with the youth of today.
