fill these hearts

Christopher West’s new book, Fill These Hearts, is out today¬ For several weeks now, West has been posting “sneak peaks” on Facebook. Here the latest excerpt:

“According to the Christian faith, the ecstasy we yearn for at the deepest level of our being is precisely what God wants to give us— eternally… This is what sexual morality, properly understood, is all about: learning how to aim our desire for heaven toward heaven.”

I pre-ordered mine on Amazon. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it. Hurry up MrPostman!

Below is a short trailer for the book. More information can be found on West’s website.

Today is the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God! She is the “New Eve,” since Eve’s disobedience ushered sin into the world while Mary’s “yes” and obedience ushered the Savior into the world!

Is God the source of your identity or is it your sexual self?

The topic of homosexuality is very prevalent at the moment, especially in countries like the UK where the government and campaigners want to ‘redefine marriage’.

At pro-life events, I have seen counter-demonstrations, where campaigners have waved placards stating ‘I hope the baby you saves will be gay’. It is very sad to see people with a hate-filled, distorted message, who have understood Catholic teaching.

The video above is an informative, catechetical resource that will equip you with the tools to be able to defend the Church’s teaching on homosexuality, and help you reveal to Truth to others.
