Here’s an interview about Rich Culture Nourishes Catholic Writers. I think Gregory Roper, author of The Writer’s Workshop: Imitating Your Way to Better Writing(ISI Books), makes some great suggestions on what is needed to help our kids to learn to write well.

Here is some playing with statistics for you! I guess they have to lie to try to justify something so wrong and bad for you. All they care about is the physical and not the spiritual and I wouldn’t even believe their statistics on the physical part. They claim Oral Contraceptives Cut Ovarian Cancer Risk. For starters you can’t say that so many of something didn’t happen, there is no way to prove it but people just aren’t schooled enough to know when they are being lied to. The spiritual effects of using artificial contraception and far reaching and hard to overcome. It is not acceptable to do something wrong so that good can come of it, no matter what.

Zenit also has a good article Lancet “Irresponsible” in Calling for More Contraceptives on this also.

I am a musician and this book Music and Morals by Basil Cole, OP really changed my perspective on the effect that music has on our lives. It answers or at least may prompt you ask the following questions: Does music have a subtle but definite influence over our attitudes and behavior? Is there a way of judging between “good” and “bad” music? It was a major factor in changing my life. With the state of entertainment today this book is highly recommended reading.

Catholic teaching says it is not acceptable to do something wrong so that good can come of it, no matter what. The Ccatechism has a great explaination of this in paragraph 1755-1761 and in the preceding starting at paragraph 1749

I hope the new translation of the missal used at Mass will be in use real soon. The last forty years of banal language will soon be over. Language to elevate our souls to God will soon be here. Zenit has an article about this – Approval of English Missal Closer

Some more great information is in a talk by Cardinal Arinze on Language in Liturgy, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
