On January 24, 2005, I stood on the sidewalk of Constitution Avenue in Washington, D.C., as the March for Life surged by.

Catholic Teaching Has the Best Way to Stop AIDS - Wayne Laugesen

Celibacy for the Kingdom & the Fulfillment of Human Sexuality - Christopher West

Children Need Morality - Lisa Marie Contini

In his 1929 encyclical Christian Education of Youth, Pope Pius XI taught that, “particularly in young people, evil practices are the effect not so much of ignorance of intellect as of weakness of a will exposed to dangerous occasions . . .” (ibid., no. 66).
