Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

A Share in God’s Divinity – Father Frank Pavone

BY FR. FRANK PAVONE

st-augustine-hippo-228x300This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“See what love the Father has bestowed on us, enabling us to be called the children of God…” (1 John 3:1)

Reflection: St. Augustine said of Christmas, “God became man so that man might become God.” Christmas is about a wondrous exchange of natures: God shares our frail humanity, and we share his divinity. The joy of Christmas is not just that a child is born, but that a whole new humanity is born. We share the Divine Nature, starting right now.

Prayer: Lord, as you have given us a share in your nature, so give us all a more profound reverence for the life of every human being! Amen!
