Some time ago at Sunday Mass, I looked up to see a woman texting on her phone in line for Holy Communion. My heart stopped. It was the most blatant, shocking show of distraction I’d ever seen. To be so close to Jesus, to be approaching this intimate moment of union with Him—and to…

Throughout history, the Church and its related organizations have usually been an integral part of a town or city’s life. An example would be the Knights of Columbus which was started in Connecticut in the 1880s by Father McGivney to help widowed mothers who were in poor financial shape after losing their husbands. They created insurance plans for families and have grown into a large fraternal benefit organization since then. In the past ten years, they have donated $1.5 billion to charitable causes.
Recently, I came across another Catholic fraternal benefit organization, Christ Medicus Foundation CURO, that is doing the same thing for health care. CURO (Latin for to care for, cure, heal , and watch over) is an affordable health care option for commited Catholics and Christians. CMF CURO members actively participate in God’s love and providence through medical cost sharing as members of Samaritan Ministries International (SMI). They are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit and not a health insurance company. And by affordable, their brochure shows a monthly share of $304 (1 person) and $579 (family of 3+). They are certainly worth considering as an alternative to secular health insurance.
