Roger Mahony QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of victims, for example, have become addicted to alcohol and drugs. It seems to me that the church's healing ministry is going to be enhanced through this in much broader strokes. That's good, it's all positive.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
Any signal that the bishops are less demanding of enforcing 100 percent safety for children and young people would be a real, real setback.

I find it inconceivable that we're meeting for five and a half days, and there isn't one moment on the agenda to deal with the greatest crisis we've ever had in the church since 1789.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
I found out that many of our Catholics simply don't know what the church teaches, and why, on a lot of issues, and therefore are saying things that they think are okay. They simply don't know.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
I personally believe, as church law sets out, that sanctions are an absolute last resort, particularly penal sanctions of depriving people of the sacraments.

Quotation of Roger Mahony
Immigrants-including those who are here illegally-are a benefit to this country. They work hard at difficult jobs in important industries.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
Immigration should be enforced in a proportional and humane manner.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
In Evangelium Vitae, our Holy Father expressed many areas of concern with life issues... In fact, he hit the death penalty as hard as many of the others. You have Catholic politicians who may be in favor of one but not the other. They're following their own different lights on these issues.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
It appears fashionable these days, and almost politically correct, to blame hard-working immigrants, especially those from Mexico and Central America, for the social and economic ills of our state and nation.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
It is unacceptable that immigrants, including children, are shackled and detained in deplorable conditions. And it is unacceptable that already this year immigrants have died by the dozens in the California desert or in other parts of the Southwest.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
It's hard to determine where lies culpability.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
Most analysts would agree that if all the undocumented immigrants in California were deported in one day, our state would experience a severe economic downturn. This does not even consider the many cultural and spiritual gifts these immigrants bring to our state and nation.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
Our country stands at a critical point in its history. Our heritage as a nation of immigrants is at stake.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
Since Roe v. Wade, there have been a lot of Catholic politicians doing and saying things that would not be in line with the church's teaching.
Quotation of Roger Mahony

Quotation of Roger Mahony
The nature of our two main political parties has changed in the United States.

Quotation of Roger Mahony
To be clear, the church recognizes the right of our country to control its borders.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
We bishops got ourselves and the church into this problem, so I can understand that, and I have no problem with that whatsoever. None.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
We should embrace our immigrant roots and recognize that newcomers to our land are not part of the problem, they are part of the solution.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
We should not blockade our border at the same time that we depend upon the labor of the immigrant nanny, janitor, busboy and agricultural worker.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
We're not at a point in time to be taking chances with children and young people in the church. The Holy Father himself said... there is no room in the priesthood or religious life for someone who has abused a child. I think he's right.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
We're seeing a much larger ministry here for the general community. Not just Catholics, but others are calling us too. They're not looking for lawyers or suing their grandfathers, but counseling and healing.
Quotation of Roger Mahony
With respect to Holy Communion, it is up to the communicant to decide whether they are in a state of grace and worthy to receive the Eucharist. Each one of us makes that decision.
