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.

Keep Away From Idols – Fr. Frank Pavone

pflBY FR. FRANK PAVONE

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Dear children, keep away from idols” (1 John 5:21).

Reflection: Ginette Paris wrote a book called “The Sacrament of Abortion.” She claims that abortion is a sacred ritual sacrifice to the goddess Artemis. As patroness of animals and of hunters, Artemis represents the ability to both protect and kill. The so-called right to abortion means that the mother can give either life or death to her child.

Prayer: Lord, free your people from the deception of idolatry, witchcraft, and false worship, which threaten not only our relationship with you, but the lives of others. Preserve us in true worship and effective justice. Amen.
