Sexualisation of the Young is Becoming Society's Cancer
Last edited 26th February 2013

For many young people, sex has become a performance, overlaid with worry about ''How do I look? What tricks do they expect me to perform? How do I compare with others?'' Separating sex from personhood is what sexualisation does. It's robbing us of closeness. Little wonder we have one of the most depressed and lonely generations of young people ever.

Last edited 19th February 2013

Dating is an important part of discerning the kind of person you want to marry. But before you launch into the dating scene, you need to ask yourself some questions to make sure you are ready... Are you interested in getting to know the person or are you lusting after them? Will dating help or hurt your soul? Are you confident with drawing boundaries when dating?

In a culture that is increasingly intolerant of Christian values and beliefs, feasts that have captured the imagination of the secular community, like St Valentine’s Day, represent a unique opportunity for the Church. It is an opportunity for us to proclaim our beliefs in a way that is affirming and life-giving to deeply held values that are shared by many in the wider community.

Last edited 28th January 2013

For many women, whether it’s insane cramps, headaches, acne, PMS, cysts, irregular cycles, or any other number of things, the only way out of the misery seems to be the magic little pill.

Do you know why they hand out condoms at your school? Or why there’s a push for more and more over-the-counter birth control? And free birth control? Because the assumption is “everyone’s doing it.” Essentially . . . we young people are seen as animals. Rabbits, cats, dogs . . . they’re just going to do it anyway. Please tell me that you want more than just sex. Don’t you want to be loved? I do. It’s inscribed on our hearts!
