20% of Young British Women Used Morning-After Pill Last Year
Last edited 11th January 2011

A poll has shown that as many as one fifth of all young women in the UK have used the morning after pill (MAP) in the past year after “unprotected sex.” A Co-Operative Pharmacy survey of 3000 people found that 20 percent of women aged 18 to 35 took the “emergency contraceptive” pill last year. The same group said they had typically used the drug, which only acts as a genuine contraceptive in some cases, when they had had sex after using drugs and/or alcohol.

Balancing Eros and Agape
Last edited 22nd December 2010

We often fail to comprehend how completely Jesus’ coming transformed the ancient world and the thinking of men. The pagan gods were all very “sexual”, and Zeus, the greatest of the Greek gods, was the most sexual, having fathered many other Greek gods by numerous different women.

St. Joseph and St. Maria Goretti: Examples of Purity
Last edited 2nd October 2015

Who do you look to as an example for purity? In this video, young Catholics talk about the Saints that inspire them to live purity. We hear about the example of St Joseph - who despite living in Israel 2000 year ago, is example of living a manly and pure life for every modern male. We also hear the story of St Maria Goretti, which may seem exceptional, but modern women today are increasingly faced with the same dilemmas against purity.
