My Catholic Life
A Unified Voice for All New York State Catholics
The New York State Catholic Conference represents the Bishops of the state in working with government to shape laws and policies that pursue social justice, respect for life and the common good. We provide a unified voice for the eight dioceses of the state to speak on such issues as education, marriage, health care, poverty, abortion, euthanasia, social services, criminal justice and the environment. We apply the principles of Catholic social teaching to critical issues of the day and encourage citizen involvement in the legislative process.
"We men are created to become husbands and fathers; women to become wives and mothers. True, it doesn't always happen. Some can’t be; some (like the author) choose not to be. But, all of us would like to be! That drive is sacred, noble, natural, good. Those of us who can’t be or choose not to be usually become doting aunts, uncles, and godparents! A culture, a society, a country, that does not protect marriage, the baby, and the family, is dying. Now we’re in Advent. We await the baby Jesus. All of history is dated either before or after the birth of this baby. All existence centers on a pregnant woman, and her baby, who is our Savior. This baby is intended to be the center of our lives."
