LADIES OF CHARITY OF CHATTANOOGA
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of
this ministry, which serves those who might
otherwise “fall through the cracks.”
Donations of funds or household goods may
be made during store hours at 2821 Rossville
Blvd, just off I-24 in Chattanooga. Store hours are 10am
to 4pm, Mon through Sat. Financial and in-kind assistance
in September went toward the following:
A WORD FROM BISHOP STIKA
ON AMENDMENT ONE
One of the great privileges of living in a democracy is the
right of its citizens to vote. Although the Catholic Church
will never identify itself with any political community or
system, we can and must speak up in support of moral
issues. One such issue that we as Catholics will have an
opportunity to vote on November 4th is Amendment
One. This amendment is neither a Republican nor a
Democrat issue, but a moral and life issue of greatest
magnitude. A yes vote on Amendment One, a prolife
amendment, would neutralize the extreme interpretation
taken by the Tennessee State Supreme Court in 2000 in
which they declared that our State Constitution
guarantees the right to an abortion. Passage of this
amendment would restore back to the voters the “life”
decisions that were taken from them by the state court
decision. For this reason, I and my brother Bishops in
Nashville and Memphis wholeheartedly ask for your
support for “life” by voting for “Yes on One” this
November 4th.

PARENTS, HAVE YOU
EVER THOUGHT…
… WHEN do I start talking to my child about virtuous living and authentic love?
… WHAT should I say?
… HOW do I let my child know that they are made in the image of God with inherent dignity?
… WHERE do I begin to teach them that their bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit?
Family Honor will answer these questions and more during Leading & Loving, our new adult-only program for any
parent or guardian of a child from 0-11 years of age.
Leading & Loving is a unique Catholic program that will help you become more confident and competent in how to raise
virtuous children and how to respond to your young child’s questions about the truth & meaning of God’s gift of sexuality.
Topics include:
• Our bodies as a visible sign of God to be honored
• The language of love: How do I speak it?
• God’s gift of sexuality: How do I share its awe & wonder?
• Dealing with tough issues with truth and mercy
Join other parents in this unique opportunity!

“De gracia recibisteis, dad de gracia.”
Mateo 10:8
Refleccion Sobre La Palabra De Dios
”.
¿Es obligatorio pagar los impuestos? La pregunta
malintencionada de los doctores de Israel fue contestada
por el Señor con una hondura y en forma tan precisa y
brillante, que les dejó mudos. El pago de los impuestos a
Roma era considerado por algunos como
colaboracionismo con el poder extranjero y un desdoro
hacia Dios por parte del pueblo elegido. Decir que sí, era
desacreditarse ante el pueblo. Decir que no, se convertía
en un pretexto para denunciarlo ante la autoridad
romana.
“Pagadle al César lo que es del César, y a Dios lo que es
de Dios”. El cristiano ha de ser un ciudadano ejemplar,
dice en esencia Jesús. Hay que obedecer a las
autoridades legítimas, a las leyes civiles justas, pagar los
impuestos razonables, votar en conciencia a quienes se
estime más capacitados y honrados, rezar por los que
gobiernan porque su responsabilidad es mucha y a todos
interesa el buen gobierno... No niega el Señor la legítima
autoridad y la autonomía en los asuntos temporales, pero
avisó también que Dios tiene sus derechos, porque la
dimensión religiosa del hombre no puede ser sofocada.
De ahí que, aunque no se lo preguntaron, añadió: “y a
Dios lo que es de Dios”.
“En nuestra sociedad se ha creado un enorme vacío
moral y religioso. Todos parecen espasmódicamente
lanzados hacia conquistas materiales: gastar, invertir,
rodearse de nuevas comodidades, pasarlo bien... Dios,
que debería invadir nuestra vida, se ha convertido, en
cambio, en una estrella lejanísima, a la que sólo se mira
en determinados momentos. Creemos ser religiosos
porque vamos a la iglesia, tratando después de llevar
fuera de ella una vida semejante a la de tantos otros,
entretejida de pequeñas o grandes trampas, de injusticias,
de ataques a la caridad, con una falta absoluta de
coherencia” (Luciani, A. Ilustrísimos señores p. 219).
Una sociedad sin valores, o que no los respeta,
arrinconando los deberes para con Dios, verdadero
garante de la dignidad humana, está abocada a una
creciente agresividad, a la corrupción y a la mentira.
“La cuestión moral es claramente, hoy más que nunca,
una cuestión de supervivencia” (Ratzinger, J.
Presentación Enc. Veritatis S.). Son muchas las voces, y
de distinta procedencia ideológica, que están reclamando
la necesidad de un código ético o moral sobre cuestiones
como biología, genética, armamento, ecología, política,
medios de comunicación, economía, etc., que impida el
que, una libertad sin norte, convierta los progresos
científicos y técnicos en instrumentos de servidumbre, de
corrupción, de barbarie.
“A Dios lo que es de Dios”. El Señor es la fuente de la
vida de las personas desde su concepción hasta la
muerte, fuente que el hombre no debe cegar. De Él es la
familia, santuario de la vida, a la que santificó con su
dilatada estancia en el hogar de Nazaret. De Él es la
conciencia en donde resuena la voz de Dios para cada
uno y que no se debe deformar con informaciones
falsas... En una palabra, todo en nuestra vida le
pertenece. “Familia de los pueblos -dice el Salmo
Responsorial- aclamad al Señor... Él gobierna a los
pueblos rectamente”.
Damos a Dios lo que es de Dios, cuando le amamos
como Él quiere y merece ser amado, esto es, alabándole
y manifestándole nuestra gratitud y admiración con el
ofrecimiento del Sacrificio de la Santa Misa, “sacrificio
sin mancha desde donde sale el sol hasta el ocaso”
(Plegaria III); cuando cumplimos sus mandamientos;
cuando creemos y esperamos sinceramente en Él; cuando
no abandonamos la oración; cuando solicitamos su
perdón si le hemos ofendido; y, en fin, cuando
trabajamos y nos comportamos con rectitud,
honradamente, apoyados en su ayuda que nunca falta.
