"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

New feature: The parts of Amoris Laetitia 'good' Catholics will probably ignore ...




“Modesty” From Amoris Laetitia by Pope Francis
282 A sexual education that fosters a healthy sense of modesty has immense value, however much some people nowadays consider modesty a relic of a bygone era. Modesty is a natural means whereby we defend our personal privacy and prevent ourselves from being turned into objects to be used. Without a sense of modesty, affection and sexuality can be reduced to an obsession with genitality and unhealthy behaviors that distort our capacity for love, and with forms of sexual violence that lead to inhuman treatment or cause hurt to others.


Yeah.  Just concentrate on the footnotes instead.


Ask yourself,
What would Our Lady wear?






Now, a modesty tip for Catholic men and boys:



Notice how low-rise this scrawny young man’s jeans are. Yet he maintains his sense of modesty by pulling up his underwear to cover:

a) the pubic region
b) butt cleavage in back.

Now if this clean cut young man were to work outside on a hot day and needed to remove his shirt, he would be perfectly modest.
