Chaste Spousal Love: Key to Western Civilization
Chaste love between a husband and wife is truly a beautiful thing to
behold! It wants to call forth from us an aspiration to become our
truest, highest, noblest selves. It has a hidden radiance within it, and
when it shines into the hearts of others who are able to notice its
beauty it can truly transform a culture for the better. This is not
automatic. I am speaking of a spousal love that has its source in the
pierced heart of Christ. It's at the very center of all that was and is
best and most transcendent in Western civilization. Lord, may it not be
too late for this now largely hidden, pure flame to be kindled again.
I converted to Catholicism in 1995.
I am an alumnus of the Franciscan University of Steubenville (biology, with pre-theology certificate).
I studied theology at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, for 3 1/2 years.
I am blessed to be the Director of Religious Education at a Catholic parish in a suburb of Philadelphia, PA.
