Life got you down? A little perspective–and gratitude–helps. Just ask Army Lt. Nick Vogt.
Many Catholics don’t accept the truth about marriage because they don’t accept—or even know—the truth about sex. It’s time to break silence and tell them the truth.
Are only children–and their parents–better off? Yes, says the author of a new book, One and Only: The Freedom of Having an Only Child and the Joy of Being One. Her warped feminist lens sees parenting as a zero-sum game and each child as a potential threat to a woman’s ‘authentic self.’ She’s couldn’t be more wrong.
It’s simplistic to suppose that the only issues posed by integrating openly gay youth into scout troops will be issues of kindness and inclusion. It will be tough, if not impossible, for the Church to include gay Scouts without confronting, head-on, the deep divide between Catholic sexual morality and the secular creed of sexual “tolerance.”
Moms need mentors too. Our fast-moving consumer culture under-appreciates the value of shaping a child’s heart and soul—and moms feel keenly that lack of support.

She’s fearless. She’s charismatic. She’s radiant. A modern evangelist, Annie basks in Christ’s love and shares it with a simple, winsome touch. A heart overflowing with love is a powerful testimony, I’ve learned. “We love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19).

Reeva Steenkamp fell victim to Oscar Pistorius’ violent assault. But she fell victim first to feminism’s great lie: that casual sexual adventures empower women.
Do Catholics you know insist that President Obama still has their vote? If so, maybe it’s time to talk “sin” and “co-dependency.” They’ve got to let go.
Respect for life is so fundamental to Catholic teaching that organizations—like the Girl Scouts– that advocate against life should be disqualified from sponsorship by a Catholic parish.
