    Questioning the sexual revolution

    • Description: "While 2015 hasn’t been declared an official “year of the family” by Pope Francis, it’s been a major focus of his nonetheless. The World Meeting of Families — the primary reason for his apostolic visit to the United States — is just weeks away, and in October he’ll convene the ordinary Synod of Bishops to discuss pastoral challenges to the family. The importance of strong families has been a constant theme throughout his general audiences over the past year as well. It’s unsurprising then that almost any time the issue of Catholic family life comes up in conversation, so does the issue of family planning and, in particular, birth control." - Christopher White
