“Amar Al Máximo,” campaign that promotes positive view of sexuality

Their names are Evan Lemoine and Fernanda Gómez, a Mexican couple that looks to change lives. They founded “Amar Al Máximo,” an institute that transmits positive and constructive views on sexuality for young people and married couples.

It began in 2013 with the idea of learning to discover “true love.”

They want to transmit the philosophy developed by St. John Paul II called, “Theology of the Body.”

Director of “Amar Al Máximo”
“John Paul II spoke about this sort of anthropology. Inside and outside of the Church, he saw many inadequate views of mankind and sexuality. We offer this adequate vision of mankind so everyone can understand.”

They organize conferences, courses and workshops for families and students. They touch on subjects such as what happiness and family are, or the dangers of pornography.

A study from 2014 says the number one cause of divorce is infidelity. For Fernanda and Evan, even the mistaken view on sexuality can cause problems.

Director of Amar Al Máximo
“Theology of the Body is the answer to questions in today's world. Not only that, it also responds to the heart's deepest concerns. For example, 'Who am I?' 'How do I get the most out of love?' or 'How can I be happy?'”

The program encourages people who want to learn the profound meaning of sexuality to follow in their footsteps of marriage that lives with “true love.”

Director of Amar Al Máximo
“I want the next generation to look at us and say, 'I want something like that.' If they can't understand the possibility of love that lasts forever, they'll end up settling for anything.”

“Amar Al Máximo” has trained 59,000 young people and 48,000 adults from six different countries. Its goal is to give its message to as many people as possible in Spanish, and begin to prepare versions for other languages.
