    Altar-ing the Meaning of Sexuality | ACW95

    I heard about the terrible thing that happened in New Orleans where the priest desecrated the altar with porn stars. How could he be a priest and do something like that? With unpredictable menstrual cycles and having made a career commitment for the next two years, should my soon-to-be-husband and I refrain from consumating our union? Why do Catholics pray to saints?

    Consecrated Virginity | ACW94

    Q2: How does one discern a call to consecrated virginity?


    Q3: Thank you for all the work you have done to present JP II's beautiful Theology of the Body. Have you ever been challenged to explain the truths within TOB without using a religious or biblical perspective? Is that even possible? I'm desperate for non-biblical and non-religious resources that still point to the same truths we know from our beautiful Church's teachings.

    Q3: I listened to your interview on Java with Juli and was so blessed by it. Can you talk about how to have our thirst quenched by Jesus? I am a Christian and want to have my thirst quenched by Christ and have my sexual desires lead toward heaven, but I don't know how.
