    Both religions strongly suggest compassion and unity, after all that is the essence of marriage. To trust in the other and to give to each other fully, in a healthy way, is what makes marriage as special as it is. However, the similarities are based mainly in the emotions between the two parties. Love and kindness are important in marriage, but for the both, so is the understanding of spirituality in one’s own beliefs. The Catholic Church sees Holy Matrimony as a gift of God’s Grace, being able to find someone in the church who shares the same beliefs and values of the Church and to build their relationship with God and their families (Molloy 387). In Buddhism, the path to enlightenment and inner peace should be enhanced with marriage and the union should be harmonious with the goals of each individual. Works Cited Coontz, Stephanie.

    can finally feel like they are seen as equals and cared about as much as the men are. The Catholic Church could grow in many ways if there were women priests by influencing more people to go to church, increasing the number of churches in the world, and making sure the Church is up to date with society. The past couple of months the Pontiff has been looking into allowing women to be ordained deacons. This gives women the opportunity to be an active participant in the mass and join the priest…

Sisters Polycarp, Cyril, and Ignatius Loyola “took no exercise, apart from beating small children with canes (O’Conner).” Sister Philomena was banished from her homeland for attempting to pretend that her dermatitis were marks of the sacred stigmata. They all have grave issues and do not act as their positions demand. They pretend to be holy and just despite the fact that they are as evil as they come. Although they…

    When a book was deemed acceptable by the church, it was given the status of “imprimatur”, which means to let it be printed. This declaration was usually only given to books based on religion from a catholic perspective. A book that did not meet the specific requirements expected by the Catholic Church could not be published until changed to fit their requirements. If the church can control what is massively produced, they can control what is massively seen by the general public. They used this…

    As of, “2008 a majority of Anglican provinces admitted women to the orders of deacon and priest” (Pui-lan 67). In the Anglican Church it is extremely common to see ordained women in a parish. Due to this, women are able to have a large impact on their Church and the decisions that are made. Unlike the Catholic Church, they are not forced to follow the strictly male Church leadership.
