Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Faith & sex: A prayer for before making love is published

2009-09-10

"Making love is, in God’s view, prayer itself. So, maybe yes, maybe not."

"God created the bodies to be together, so in and of itself it’s a religious experience."

Catholic doctrine considers sex to be a gift from God to married couples as the highest expression of human love and the power of procreation.

But other couples don’t seem to think there’s a place for prayer before intimacy, sometimes also for religious reasons.

"I don’t consider that you have to pray before making love."

"I don’t think you have to pray before you make love because I think making love is all about God and that’s what its all about."

It’s not a novelty, though. The Bible has a prayer for married couples based on Tobit and Sarah.

The new book was published by the Catholic Truth Society, a publisher and charity group in London. It also includes prayers for pregnancy, dating, and the care of children.
