(2Ti 4:1-5)  I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming and his kingdom: Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. But be thou vigilant, labour in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil thy ministry. Be sober.

We can then understand why the Catholic Church, yesterday and today, attaches so much importance to the rigorous conservation of authentic Revelation, and considers it as an inviolable treasure, and have such a strict awareness of his fundamental duty to defend and transmit the doctrine of the faith in unequivocal terms; orthodoxy is his first concern; the pastoral magisterium its primary and providential function; apostolic teaching in fact fixes the canons of his preaching; and the handing over of the Apostle Paul: Depositum custodians (1 Tim. 6, 20; 2 Tim. 1, 14 ) constitutes such a commitment for it, which would be treason to violate. The Church teacher does not invent her doctrine; she is heads, she is custodian, she is interpreter, she is through; and, as regards the truths proper to the Christian message, it can be said conservative, uncompromising; and to those who urge her to make her faith easier, more relative to the tastes of the changing mentality of the times, she replies with the Apostles: Not possumus, we cannot (Act. 4, 20 ).

-POPE PAUL VI, Wednesday, January 19, 1972

BISHOP ROBERT McMANUSDiocesan policy for schools regarding sexuality and sexual identity

All entities of the Catholic Church are for the purpose of furthering the saving mission of Jesus Christ and must operate in accord with the truth revealed by God in both natural law and divine revelation. In particular, our Catholic schools must remain in the fullness of the truth in order to carry out their proper mission:

Since true education must strive for complete formation of the human person that looks to his or her final end as well as to the common good of societies, children and youth are to be nurtured in such a way that they are able to develop their physical, moral, and intellectual talents harmoniously, acquire a more perfect sense of responsibility and right use of freedom, and are formed to participate actively in social life. (Code of Canon Law, c. 795).

These truths extend into every facet of our lives, including human sexuality.

Regarding sexuality and sexual identity, the Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “By creating the human being man and woman, God gives personal dignity equally to the one and the other. Each of them, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church (“CCC”), 2360-2363). By its very nature, sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of a man and woman within the bond of marriage (c. 1055). And marriage, which is a partnership of the whole of life, is always ordered by its very nature to both the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of children (Ibid.). All persons are called to chastity, to be lived out according to one’s state in life (CCC, #2337-2359)

CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF TYLERPastoral Letter from Bishop Strickland, August 2023

In this time of great turmoil in the Church and in the world, I must speak to you from a father’s heart in order to warn you of the evils that threaten us, and to assure you of the joy and hope that we have always in our Lord Jesus Christ. The evil and false message that has invaded the Church, Christ’s Bride, is that Jesus is only one among many, and that it is not necessary for His message to be shared with all humanity. This idea must be shunned and refuted at every turn. We must share the joyful good news that Jesus is our only Lord, and that He desires that all humanity for all time may embrace eternal life in Him.

Once we understand that Jesus Christ, God’s Divine Son, is the fullness of revelation and the fulfillment of the Father’s plan of salvation for all humanity for all time, and we embrace this with all our hearts, then we can address the other errors that plague our Church and our world which have been brought about by a departure from Truth.

In St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians, he writes: “I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by {the} grace {of Christ} for a different gospel {not that there is another}. But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach {to you} a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed! As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!” (Gal 1:6-9)

8. "A brother asked Poemen, 'What am I to do do, for I become weak just by sitting in my cell?'  He said, 'Despise no one, condemn no one, revile no one: and God will give you quietness, and you will sit at peace in your cell."
