Letters From Bishop Powers

Today the Supreme Court issued an opinion on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturns the Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey opinion of January 22, 1973. Although this ruling is a huge step in the right direction, we know it does not mean an end to abortion. For those of us who hold to the sacredness and inviolability of every human life from the moment of conception to natural death, the work continues.
As a people of faith, we need to work together to meet the needs of every mother in need. Our commitment to life must include a willingness to help find and provide the resources the family might need. In our efforts we need to work to transform hearts and minds from our culture of death to a culture of life. Let us stand together as we embrace the gift of life in our communities, our country.
Sincerely yours in the Risen Christ,
Most Rev. James P. Powers
Bishop of Superior, WI
Letters from Fr. Jerry
I have been thinking a lot lately about the truth. Pilate famously asked: “What is truth”,
Aristotle, the Greek Philosopher, defined truth as the correspondence of the intellect with reality. Reality and truth have been under assault for a long time. Businesses sell images and ideas that products and services are the means to happiness. Politicians make promises they cannot keep and distort the truth to cause fear or to paint their opponents as negatively as possible. Alcoholics and addicts deny the truth about their condition. Married people lie about their infidelities. Abortion advocates say it is about controlling their bodies and denying the body of the unborn child that they carry within their body.
Pundits call our time a “post-truth” society. This is an alarming indictment of the health of our civilization.
Our Judeo-Christian tradition includes the Ten Commandments. The Eighth Commandment is : Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. It includes a prohibition on all forms of lies and untruths.
Jesus calls Himself: “The way, the truth, and the life.” His words are God’s Words – Wisdom and Truth.
He is the Truth that God sent His Only Begotten Son to redeem the world and give us everlasting life. Those who are in Christ are people of the Truth that is Christ. Jesus Christ, being the Son of God, is incapable of deceiving us. His words to us are true. So must our words be true.
Satan, the Prince of Darkness, is also the Father of Lies. It began in his lies to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that led to our fallen state. To lie is to participate in the darkness of evil.
We are children of Light in Christ. Our words must reflect the Light of Truth. Our so-called “post-truth” society is in need of truth-especially Christ. The proliferation of lies has undermined trust in our institutions, our government, and with one another. Trust is necessary for healthy relationships with God and with one another. The only way to build trust and to build healthy marriages, families, churches, businesses, and social institutions is by the way of truth.
May our words be true and our witness to Christ who is Truth be faithful and strong.
