Last edited 1st July 2015

Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition To Unions Between Homosexual Persons
Last edited 28th June 2015

"Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It was established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and purpose. No ideology can erase from the human spirit the certainty that marriage exists solely between a man and a woman, who by mutual personal gift, proper and exclusive to themselves, tend toward the communion of their persons. In this way, they mutually perfect each other, in order to cooperate with God in the procreation and upbringing of new human lives."

He Calls You Beautiful: Help for the Abused
Last edited 2nd June 2015

"If you are a woman who is a victim of sexual abuse, I want you to know I am so deeply sorry. My heart breaks at the vast number of young women who experience this pain in their lives, because it is pain no one should ever know. Perhaps you feel like you are broken, or damaged, or garbage because of the way you have been harmed…I am praying as I write that if you feel yourself to be any of these things, that today would be the day that the Truth of Christ speaks loudly into your heart. You are not and never will be damaged in the eyes of God… even in the midst of this pain, He calls you beautiful, brave, chosen, and His."

Love, he explained shouldn't be improvised or based on fading emotions: "The freedom of giving oneself to another is a decision that requires a conscious harmony. It's not about a simple mutual attraction, an emotion, a moment or a phase. It's a journey.”
