Infertility: The Church’s Loving Response
by Katie Elrod and Paul Carpentier, MD, CFCMC, in Women, Sex, and the Church: A Case for Catholic Teaching, edited by Erika Bachiochi.Every child, born or unborn, created as a result of loving married intercourse, or in a petri dish to be transferred to the womb, left indefinitely in cryostorage, or used in scientific experimentation, shares equally in this inalienable human dignity.Moreover, each child is equal in dignity to his or her mother. This is why the desire for a child, albeit a very r...

“An Act of Giving, Not Taking”

“An Act of Giving, Not Taking”
by Angela Franks, PhD, in Women, Sex, and the Church: A Case for Catholic Teaching, edited by Erika Bachicochi.Margaret Sanger and the dominant culture give one answer to the question of what is bad for us: female fertility. By contrast, the Church argues that it is not the female body that oppresses women and girls, but rather that deformed desire is at the heart of all sin—and thus all oppression.If deformed desire is bad for us, healed desire, put in the service of self-giving love, is good ...

Abstinence as Virtue
by Karol Wojtyla (Saint John Paul II), translated by Grzegorz Ignatik in Love and Responsibility.Sexual intercourse of a man and a woman in marriage remains on the level of a personal union in love only on the condition that they do not positively exclude the possibility of procreation and parenthood. When this “I can be a father,” “I can be a mother” is positively excluded in the consciousness and will of a man and a woman, then what is left (objectively speaking) in the conjugal act is sex...

Faith Is a Journey into God's Horizons
Get faith! Have faith! Keep the faith! Believe the teachings of the Faith! At least three things seem to be communicated by these statements: trust, perseverance, and orthodox belief. And indeed, when it comes to understanding faith, this may be how most would define this virtue. Instead, I like to imagine faith as a diamond. Have you ever held a diamond up to the light? The cut of a diamond determines its beauty and quality in part by the way the cut disperses light into the colors of th...

Bibles for Kids: The Message Is Jesus
“The word of God is living and active” (Heb 4:12).As a children’s editor at Pauline Books & Media, I am constantly asking myself, “What message do we want to communicate to our children and young people today?” The answer to that question invariably boils down to: Jesus. We want to provide a space for children and young people to enter into a living relationship of love with Jesus Christ. While there are many ways of encountering Christ, Scripture is a privilege...

6 strategies for deepening relationships
Six strategies for deepening your relationships based on the mystery of love in the Trinity. Every time we respect another person or we reverence the sacredness and integrity of creation, we are living in relationship. We are living as God lives: in love. Whenever we give ourselves to another in service or care, we are living in a relationship modeled on God-Love. When we love, yet respect another’s freedom, we are loving the way the Persons of the Trinity love each other, and the...

Rosary Miracle Prayer App

posted on
Rosary Miracle Prayer App
I remember when we first began thinking about making a rosary app. I thought people would prefer the touch of the beads. In fact, at that time many rosary apps were trying to simulate the touch of the beads...or rather the "tap" of the beads. But instead, what people really like about this app is the wonderful combination of the sisters' reflections and voices at prayer, the variety of images which they can meditate on as their pray, the scripture passages and prayer intentions, the music, the a...
