Still loving the new translation. It might take a few more weeks to get the hang of all the new parts we have to say... especially, "And with your spirit." So far I have messed it up at least once at each Mass I've been to. But i know I'm not alone.

A friend recently posted the following on their Facebook page:
"Homosexuality is found in over 450 species.
Homophobia is found in only one.
Which one seems unnatural now?"
Many species also eat their young, kill their mates, and allow their wounded to be taken by predators. These are all "natural" things. But just because something happens in nature doesn't mean that humans should follow the example of these animals. I agree that homophobia is wrong... but that doesn't mean that homosexuality is just another form of "normal" for the human species.
