If integrity means adherence to moral principles, whose moral principles are we following? Have you ever heard someone say, when talking about contraception for example “well, that may be true/what’s right for you, but it is not true for everyone…” This has to do with a troublesome idea that morality can be relative – this is risky business. Just as we can see God’s work in the natural law, God also placed on our hearts moral law…there is right and there is wrong, and this doesn’t change by majority vote. I think Archbishop Fulton Sheen said it best “right is right even if no one is right. Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is wrong.” We need to orient our lives toward Christ and let the Holy Spirit guide us in terms of morality so that we may live lives of integrity.

This beautiful choral-orchestral setting of the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead is the best known of Faure’s large works, and reflects his hopeful interpretation of death. Faure himself said of his work, “It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has called it a lullaby of death. But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.”
