You're a Great Man: 29 Catholic Girls Explain Why
Last edited 28th January 2015

Sometimes I hear girls complain about the fact that they can’t find any good guys. I don’t know what they’re talking about. They are everywhere and I am blessed to have the privilege to know so many of them. I see great men in my grandfathers, my father, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends, co-workers, boyfriends, and neighbors.

Pope Francis: 'Responsible Parenthood' Doesn't Mean Birth Control
Last edited 19th January 2015

Pope Francis backed Blessed Paul VI's teaching against birth control and urged openness to life, but reminded couples that “responsible parenthood” does not require them “to be like rabbits” in order to be good Catholics.

How my Life Changed Forever after I got the Depo Provera Birth Control Injection
Last edited 7th January 2015

I got married to Doug in 2005. I knew that we wanted to delay having children for a while, and I had tried pretty much every hormonal birth control method under the sun. I had not, however, gotten the Depo Provera birth control injection. It seemed like a pretty worry-free method.

Do Children Have to Be So Expensive?
Last edited 23rd December 2014

Presents somehow sneak their way into being a significant focus for adults and children alike at Christmas time especially. I'm not overly enjoying watching television at the moment because of the constant advertisements about another "one day only sale" (which is actually on again in two days time!) that blare their way into our living room and our family consciousness. You might want to re-consider your focus this Christmas season in light of this expert research:

Seven Things I Wish My Pastor Knew About My Homosexuality
Last edited 10th December 2014

"May I make two requests? Continue to love me, but remember that you cannot be more merciful than God. It isn’t mercy to affirm same-sex acts as good. Practice compassion according to the root meaning of “compassion”: Suffer with me. Don’t compromise truth; help me to live in harmony with it. I’m asking you to help me take up my cross and follow Jesus."

When I’m going too far with a guy, I’m always afraid to say no. What should I do?
Last edited 9th December 2014

As difficult as this may be, try to uncover the cause of your fear. For example, I know of a young woman who had been the victim of rape, and from that point forward in her life, she never said “no” to doing sexual things with guys. Her reasoning for this was because in her mind, she “knew what happens when a girl says no,” and she never again wanted to experience such a violation of her will. Therefore, by saying “yes” to every man’s lust, she thought she was robbing them of their power to control her. Unfortunately, in doing so, she had also surrendered her own power to love and be loved.

How to Take a Girl on a Real Date
Last edited 18th November 2014

It’s great if you’re actually going to ask a girl on a real date. That’s kind of revolutionary these days. It takes guts, and this is probably why it happens so rarely.

Natural Birth Control - a Man’s Point of View
Last edited 30th October 2014

Be wary of the pro-contraceptive propaganda you read about in the news, which always de-emphasizes the risks. Read carefully the labels of the contraceptive drugs she’s taking. Google the risks associated with hormonal contraceptives or of foreign objects being inserted in your wife’s body.

Who Can Help End Women's Sexual Exploitation? Christian Men
Last edited 30th October 2014

Men – particularly men within the Christian church – have a crucial role in changing cultural attitudes surrounding the sexual exploitation of women, say organizers of an upcoming New York conference. Rather than being confined to a matter of personal behavior or morality, the need to put an end to the scourge is a greater issue of societal justice, according to Paul Horrocks, founder of Justice NYC.

Has the Catholic Church Changed Its Teaching on Sex and Marriage? No!
Last edited 15th October 2014

If you’ve been reading the papers or watching television or visiting blogs and online news sites, you may be thinking: “On Monday the Catholic Church changed its teachings on marriage and sexuality. There has been an ‘earthquake,’ a ‘seismic shift.’ Things will never be the same." Well this is incorrect! The Catholic Church’s moral teachings in their wholeness, which have not shifted at all.
