Parents Are An Image of God

Before I begin, let me preface this by saying that it is an extremely rough sketch of a very complex topic. If there are any real historians out there reading this (for a laugh, no doubt) I welcome your criticism and correction. One of the more popular tropes you hear around the internet is the […]

A Couch Is NOT a Promise

Not too long ago, my best friend moved in with her boyfriend. It’s a big deal: this is her third long-term, serious relationship, but the first one she felt confident enough in to say, “Hey, I like you so much, I’m going to live with you.” I have very mixed feelings about this whole thing. […]

When Waiting is Really Hard

In reaction to the increasing physical immorality spreading through society today, and in an attempt to counter the message  constantly being sold through advertising, movies, music, and even best-selling books that says sexual intimacy is not only okay, but expected, outside of marriage, the Catholic online world has been buzzing with all sorts of articles […]

Does Contraception have a place in Christian Relief Work?

Why Chaste People Should Get Uncomfortable

Ten years ago, I crossed a modest stage in a well-lit gymnatorium at a private, Protestant school. I was one of 14 high school seniors who wore royal blue caps and gowns and breathed happy sighs of relief upon being given what meant more to us than diplomas: Freedom.

And God Made A Father

“I can’t believe you have a freakin’ kid.” I hear that phrase a lot now from my old high school and college friends. “I know,” I say in reply. “It’s crazy.” It is still a little weird to me, I guess. It’s even weirder how time seems to have sped up since the day I […]

Someone, Please, Like Me…

“Stockholm syndrome, individuals’ desperate attempts to become like their captors.  On a lesser scale it was why good German citizens followed Hitler, Ryan said.  Or why any person might compromise his or her convictions without realizing he or she was doing so to be accepted.  To be wanted. The world was suffering from Stockholm syndrome.” […]
