A new scientific discovery by U.S. and Switzerland scientists has found that 90% of all current animal life on earth came into existence between 100k to 200k years ago, and that all human beings descend from one man and one woman at about the exact same time. In other words, genetic science has now confirmed there was a literal Adam and Eve and we are all descended from them between 100k to 200k years ago.
Now this does not mean the Genesis account in the Bible is to be taken literally. What it means is that the Catholic Church is (scientifically) right in requiring belief in a literal Adam and Eve even if we don’t subscribe to a literal interpretation of the creation accounts in Genesis 1 and 2.
Catholic Christians are free to interpret the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis as figurative if they so choose. However, they are not to be dismissed as myth. Rather, the themes and characters are to be taken as literal people, while the details of their lives may be written of in a legendary way to convey a certain moral or teaching. This is why Catholics are free to believe in scientific evolution, while at the same time required to believe in a literal Adam and Eve. The pair literally existed, and they literally fell from grace. But the details of their life and fall may be figuratively written in symbolic ways.

🙋♀️🙋♂️🗳👶❤️ Roe v Wade has caused the legal deaths of over 60,853,941+ babies in the United States of America…
Roe created an “absolute right to abortion” under which “any abortion can be justified”
“Most Americans favor legal restrictions on abortion that go way beyond current law,” according to Lydia Saad, a senior editor for the Gallup polling company which has long tracked abortion opinion.
The way Americans self-identify has changed dramatically over the years. In the mid-1990s, “pro-life” was a distinct minority view. But in May 2009, for the first time, a significantly greater percentage of Americans self-identified as “pro-life” than “pro-choice.”
According to Gallup, only a small minority of Americans agree with Roe:
—61% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the fetal heartbeat has begun, which occurs in the first month of pregnancy.
—72% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the first 3 months of pregnancy.
—86% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the first 6 months of pregnancy.
—Only 6% -17% of Americans believe abortion should be legal at any time, in all circumstances.

Let us pray and wish a blessed #happybirthday to Father Baba Padre Saimon who turned 106 years young this week with 80 years of #priesthood.

How do we make society Christ-centered?
Joshua 24:15 “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua made a statement to Israel after Moses was gone. He also made a statement about his family that for his household they “will serve the LORD.” When a family determines to serve the Lord, the Lord is determined to be a part of that family. Families are stronger when the Lord is being considered before making decisions. This includes what movies to watch, what’s on TV, the Internet, in magazines, and whatever other media infiltrates the home. When the Lord is honored things will go well with that family. Like Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, “And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” When that third cord is God, then families are stronger and can withstand many of the storms of life.
