Oh Jennifer – such a good article. Thank you for writing this, in particular:
“I do not see women who display a blatant disregard for what their Church teaches.
Instead, I see women who love their Catholic faith, and who genuinely desire to live in accordance with its tenets.
I see women who have been bombarded by secular wisdom on human sexuality, yet who have never heard a detailed explanation of their own Church’s beliefs in this area.”
A question delightfully worth pondering:
“Is it possible that in treating children like children – both in the way we dress them and the activities we allow them to pursue – we will better prepare them for a natural, responsible transition to adulthood some day in the future?”
Worth the read, and worth a re-examination of policies that have created this mess.
One of the MANY reasons I am a loyal Southwest customer through and through.
This is a phenomenal scholarship program offered by a very generous foundation. If you or someone you know is graduating from high school with the Class of 2018, consider applying for this (very) generous award.
So proud of my faith and it’s representatives who act like this.
This child will have a good home. Pray for the birthmother.
