The Church Doesn't Need a Revolution

In so many Catholic schools, universities and seminaries, it has been impossible to find the Catholic Church's teaching on sexuality presented in a positive and compelling way, and yet, I see a growing push from a small but growing group of lay Catholics to take another look at it, to take another look at it. They find it more positive and more humanizing than the approach modern secular culture takes (surprise), and I shall be interested in watching the development for the coming years.

I was taught NFP from a wonderful nun who held a Master's Degree in Biology--what a blessing she was, and that program is for those who want to live their Faith.

If no one 'in the Church' can support the Church's Teachings ... maybe they're wrong.

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Mary Hasson from the Ethics and Public Policy Center has been doing some unique work looking into what Catholic women know and want from their Church. It's scandalous and yet not entirely surprising that she found only 13 percent of Catholic women who occasionally attend Mass accept Church teaching on contraception.

It's not a shock...
