Last edited 30th October 2014

When all the butterflies have fluttered away and your wedding day becomes a distant memory, you will discover that you've married someone who is just as imperfect as you.

Last edited 15th October 2014

The “Catholic Church hates gay people” is a misconception floating around society. I’m sure Catholics have heard it many times. I don’t know about you, but I always wonder why people believe this misconception. My guess? Many Catholic individuals don’t know how to properly express love. When the Church’s individuals fail to express love, the Church loses its identity.
