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.

True Love – Father Frank Pavone

BY FR. FRANK PAVONE

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

“This is how we know what love is: he laid down his life for us” (1 John 3:16).

Reflection: The word “love” is the most misused, abused, and confused word in the English language. We say: I love ice cream, I love my mother, I love my wife, I love God. And some use “love” to justify abortion. The real meaning of love is found at the Cross. Love says, “I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.” Abortion says, “I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.”

Prayer: Lord I commit myself today to the love of others, especially those most in need. Amen.
