A Single Voice in the Catholic Church
Last edited 17th November 2014

Anastasia Northrop, founder of the National Catholic Singles Conference, states that the number of single Catholics in the US now account for approximately 40% of the American Church. The spiritual difficulties and injuries encountered by unmarried Catholics should not be taken lightly. Many Catholics sadly have gotten caught up in a culture which regularly engages in cohabitation and contraception. It is erroneous to believe, however, that all single Catholics are no different in their values and practices than any other single American. There are numerous singles who practice their faith, assent to the Church’s doctrines and moral teachings, and who do their best to live a life worthy enough of a Catholic Christian.

Last edited 16th November 2014

19 years ago Alex Breslin was diagnosed with brain cancer. He had a wife, a daughter, a son on the way (yours truly), and four months to live. Doctors told him that he had an inoperable brain tumor that nobody had ever been able to survive six months with. He had celebrated his last anniversary, he had wished his daughter a last happy birthday, and he had a son that he would never get to see.
