  • Description:

    First Topic - Joint confession acceptable for married couples?

    A veteran columnist for American Catholic newspapers has written that joint confessions by married couples may be allowed "provided, of course, that they both approve and consider it helpful for their marriage." Really? We look a the pertinent canon law with Fr. Robert Garrity, cannon lawyer and chaplain at Ave Maria University

    Second Topic - Abstinence funding weakened in legislation

    Part of the children's health legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives Aug. 1 extends Title V abstinence education funding for another two years but expands the funding to include "comprehensive sex-education" programs, which already are heavily funded and too often promote premarital sex. Valerie Huber, director of the National Abstinence Education Association responds.
