Faculty News & Events

Faculty News & Events: "Bishop Salvatore Cordileone's Speech at Saint Mary's on Pope's Encyclical, 'Caritas in Veritate'
'Caritas in Veritate: Economic Justice and Human Ecology'"

Note to high schools and Catholic colleges (from my point of view, those in the Silicon Valley)

First and foremost, a college must have a robust marriage culture. There must be a deep understanding of the significance of the mutual self-giving of spouses and the complementarity of the sexes. This understanding is essential to the mission of a Catholic college, as reflected in Saint Mary’s College own mission statement where it pledges: “to affirm and foster the Christian understanding of the human person which animates the educational mission of the Catholic Church.” There can be no correct understanding of social justice without first understanding the family founded on marriage, the first vital cell of society. Further, respect for the family founded on marriage as the proper place for the procreation and education of children is inextricably connected to the subordination of the material and technical to the ethical and spiritual. Inclusive excellence actually proceeds from the family founded on marriage as the reflection of the relational unity of the Trinity.

Translated: Don't embrace the active homosexual lifestyle, embrace chastity and marriage.
