 What is In-State tuition?    When applying for college, students have to pay either in-state tuition or out-of-state tuition, depending on where they reside. Students who pay in-state tuition will pay about 1/3 of what an out-of-state student would pay.    So let’s say that you live in California and would like to attend college in Florida. If you attend a state or public university, you would have to pay out-of-state tuition. The reason for this system is that state colleges and universities are funded in part by tax payers’ money and in this case, tax...
 The DREAM Act is still alive    Despite the fact that the DREAM act did not pass last year, to become a federal law that would allow undocumented students to attend college and become law abiding citizens of this country, the DREAM keeps living.    Shortly after the DREAM act fell through in 2010, President Obama recognized the need to keep fighting for it, saying: "Today, there are hundreds of thousands of students excelling in our schools who are not American citizens. Some are the children of undocumented workers, who had nothing to do with the actions...
 If a person of another religion decides to become a Catholic, why should he or she be baptized again?There is only a Baptism of water in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

If the Baptism was not with water and in the name of the...

What is the most important symbol of the church and why?The essence of the church is sacramental (symbolic) in its very essence. The most important symbol of the church is what she is and she is called to be. The church is the sacrament of Christ (his body) and makes it visible in the world.The church must be more and more a clear and credible sign of her head: Christ. We can say that the church is full of symbols, particularly sacramental symbols (7) that have a great importance as they show the presence of God in Christian life from birth to death.Let me give the question back to you:What...
BEING A PARENTAt this time of Lenten reflection we are taught how great God’s love is for us that he gave us his only son, so we could understand salvation and be forgiven for our blindness.  In this reflection, I ask myself what could be best for us and our families. Is it educating them well so they can have a solid and dignified formation within present society, where they won’t fall into drug abuse or evil ways? Other people might think that they can leave children on their own, since the school will take care of educating them, and we can use the time to do our own “things” such as...
