St. Michael: Guardian of the Church - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Stem Cell Research - Fr. William Saunders

Recently, there has been a lot of controversy over stem cell research. Even the late President Reaganís son, Ron, gave a speech at the Democratic convention approving stem cell research. John Kerry recently has been giving speeches endorsing stem cell research. What do we, as Catholics, believe about this?  Email This Article

Sterilization as Contraception - Fr. William Saunders

Our neighbors told us that their sons and wives (all of whom are Catholic and educated in Catholic elementary and high schools), each couple with two children apiece, donít plan to have any more children and to make certain everyone recently had surgical procedures performed to prevent conception. The sons had vasectomies and their wives had their fallopian tubes sutured. Our friends think this is a form of birth control, and we agree with them. Has the Church addressed this matter?  Email This Article

Sterilization: Why It Is Wrong - Fr. William Saunders

I recently saw the movie Cheaper by the Dozen. In it, the father, played by Steve Martin, states that he has had a vasectomy. This has caused some discussion among friends, especially because some people think that after 12 children one logically should have a vasectomy. Why does the Church teach that sterilization is wrong?  Email This Article

What is the Church's teaching regarding suicide? I always thought suicide was a mortal sin, so how is it that a person can be buried in the Church?  Email This Article

Surgery That Destroys Bodily Integrity - Fr. William Saunders

Right after Christmas, the Post had a front-page article about a man who had a "sex change" operation. What moral teaching does the Church give on this subject?  Email This Article

Symbols of the Office of Bishop - Fr. William Saunders

I was watching the installation of Archbishop McCarrick of Washington. I have always wondered why bishops wear what they do, meaning the mitre and staff. Where do these things come from?  Email This Article
