USCCB committee chair calls upon bishops to highlight National Marriage Week
February 05, 2015
Bishop Richard Malone of Buffalo, the chairman of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has asked his brother bishops to use National Marriage Week (Feb. 7-14) as an opportunity to highlight the nature of marriage.
“The declining numbers of marriages in the Church is a concern to our Committee, as are the effects that pornography use has on marriages and families,” he said. “In the political and legal realm, it is certainly of grave concern to see continuing attempts to redefine marriage into something other than the lifelong union of one man and one woman.”

Bishop Malone, all we'll get from your "brother bishops" is a few lines in the diocesan newspaper. The subject is never mentioned by our pastors from the public and Catholics are asleep on the subject of marriage and the way it is treated in our country. We need leadership, not newspaper articles!
