Welcome to St. Gregory's
where Christ challenges us each and every day to love him and love each other

July 2015

From: The Rt. Rev. Whayne M. Hougland, Jr., IX Bishop of Western Michigan

My brothers and sisters,
Today my heart is full of joy and happiness upon receiving the news of the Supreme Court's decision making, same-sex marriage legal nationwide. Our baptismal covenant calls us to respect the dignity of every human being. This decision does just this and reminds us that in the end love
always wins. The decision speaks for itself, but I encourage you to read this paragraph from court's decision; it is beautiful and moving:

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."

May the peace God fill us and lift us now and  always.

Blessings and peace,
