The Pressure of Proposing
Last edited 30th April 2013

Somewhere along the way, proposals have become almost bigger and more important than the engagement itself! This need for a large-scale proposal certainly reflects our voyeuristic culture, where we almost live our lives to be seen while always watching the lives of others. It’s almost like finding that special person who loves you isn’t enough anymore, we also need everyone to see and applaud it too. Visit this article by Tamara Rajakariar to read more.

A Look at Some Biblical Texts in Opposition to Contraception
Last edited 24th April 2013

Did you know that no Christian denomination prior to 1930 ever taught the contraception was anything but sinful? The first denomination to depart from this received teaching was the Anglicans, who at the 1930 Lambeth conference set aside more than 5000 years of Jewish and Christian wisdom and embraced the modern contraceptive notion that there is no necessary connection between procreation and sex. One by one the other Protestant denominations fell, such that today, only Catholic and Orthodox Christians, as well as some Orthodox Jews, are left holding the light of ancient antiquity.

What does the Catholic Church offer to the Homosexual Person?
Last edited 4th April 2013

The Church offers people with same-sex attraction what she offers anyone else: the truth of God’s Word authoritatively interpreted, the Sacraments of Salvation, a vision for life, and the witness and support of the communal life, a communion with those now living as well as with the ancients whose voice and witness we still revere. We also offer respect based on truth.

Chastity Before Marriage: a Fresh Perspective
Last edited 26th February 2013

There are many young couples who sincerely believe in the Church’s teachings forbidding sexual intercourse before marriage. And yet, even such admirable young couples with the best of intentions find themselves in situations of grave temptation. One reason this occurs is a faulty attitude toward the Church’s condemnation of fornication. It is seen as something to avoid, i.e. as a negative phenomenon.

Sexualisation of the Young is Becoming Society's Cancer
Last edited 26th February 2013

For many young people, sex has become a performance, overlaid with worry about ''How do I look? What tricks do they expect me to perform? How do I compare with others?''
