The recent split of Schwartzenegger and his wife Maria Schriver (pictured above) is evidence of the need for greater prayer in families. It has become clear that a lifestyle of fame, fortune and prestige does not ensure a sound marriage or spiritual life. Movie stars are not Angels and are subject to many temptations. Mel Gibson's (pictured below) troubles with his second wife are constantly commanding media attention. It is important for Christians to pray for Mr. Gibson and his family. Here again we find individuals entrenched in an environment of greed, indecency, and jealously.
How can man avoid such evils? Through greater prayer and penance. It is important to remember the example of St. Mary Magdelene who publicly repented of her many sins. She became a great Saint in the Church. These men have performed good deeds for society and therefore are in need of our prayers more than gossip. It is hoped that these incidents do not overshadow the good they have done. Kyrie Eleison+
