Busy summer

I haven't posted in about a month. I've been on retreat and had to go to some meetings, plus had a week of vacation. I also went to the Courage Conference where we had a book exhibit and recorded the talks (available on CD through our website www.pauline.org)

The Courage Conference was really great. I'm always really impressed and amazed by all these people who are trying to live a chaste life and accept the Church's teachings on sexual morality. I have to give them a lot of credit. They're an inspiration to all of us. In today's world it's not so easy to find people like this, but they are there, quietly leading their hidden lives. May God bless them in their struggles. Today they are really counter-cultural since our society is so inundated by sexual license and promiscuity. But despite it all, many people are making living heroic lives of virtue.

How interesting that I read this today. Last night, I happened to watch an episode of Law&Order that basically mocked the efforts of groups like Courage and made everyone who believed in the mission of such groups out to be a bunch of overly religious, repressed, bigoted, ignorant fools. Not only that, but of course, the result of all of the groups efforts was a murder!
You can almost FEEL the hate of the producers toward those groups and I really could see the hand of satan in the actor's hatred toward the people in the group (the Courage-like group). They couldn't even think for a moment that life could be about something that transcended sick satisfactions.

Fighting against attitudes like that? I certainly DO applaud the people of Courage!
