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”.

Catholic and Married: Book sheds light on real every day challenges of married life

2015-03-01

There's no such thing as a perfect marriage. Couples of any age and background can attest to that. In an attempt to leave the fairy tale narrative behind, and address real every day challenges, the idea of this book came about. 

It's called Catholic and Married: Leaning into Love. We talked to one of the contributors through a Skype interview.

"The culture wars question, of like ‘what’s happening to marriage, what’s wrong with marriage, and we wanted to say, here is what is right with marriage. Let’s give people an attractive, compelling story and narrative they can really draw hope from and be encouraged by. Joyful, but realistic.” 

It includes nine chapters, each one of which was authored by either a husband, wife or married couple. It gives a Catholic perspective, addressing everything from co-habitation, to having children, the challenges of marriage and even divorcee children. Jenny Uebbing wrote a chapter on Natural Family Planning, titled ' Are you Done?'

"It does foster this intimacy and this communication that you can’t replicate.” 

She and her husband have three children and are three months along with number four. She says, NFP isn't easy, but worth it. It has fostered a type of trust and understanding in their intimate relationship.

"It’s  the one area that we’re not even supposed to think about being self giving or being receptive it’s all mine, mine, mine. It that was applied to any other area in our lives, there would be such an obvious disconnect.” 

In a culture where now it's often questioned if marriage is even worth the trouble, the book shares the stories of couples who say it's not easy, but it is worth it.
