Our sins hurt us more than the sins committed toward us

"Christ said, 'Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?' (Mt 7:3); it is too easy to hate the sins of others (from slights and insults, directed toward us personally, to genocide and racism), but the sins that should really matter to us are the sins we commit ourselves, which hurt ourselves, and then naturally others, the most." - Scott Hahn

Old Testament prophecies written about Christ

"When you pray, you listen as the Father and the Son talk about you"-Fr. Barron

Injustice of abortion

"Justice cannot allow the granting of legal rights to one person (such as the "right to an abortion") at the expense of the natural rights of another (in that case, the right to life and limb). To do so is to fail 'to give everyone his or her rightful due.'"
