Catholics are romantic. We believe that two people can fall in love and stay in love. We believe that the biggest jerk can become the holiest person in our lives. We believe that the lowly are the ones who will be raised, the downtrodden the blessed, and the ones who are taken advantage of, justified. We believe that joy changes lives. That a piece of bread and a cup of wine transforms into the body and blood of Christ. And consuming that body and blood will transform us. We believe that we can step into a confessional a repentant sinner and walk out a forgiven son or daughter. We are romantic.

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, pray for us.
The youth of today is not in danger because of its love of pleasures, but because it worships the wrong kind of heroes.
Fulton Sheen should’ve had a reality show today.
Yes, it is so true that it takes courage to form a family. It takes courage! And your question, young spouses, is linked to the question of vocation. What is marriage? It is a true and authentic vocation, as are the priesthood and the religious life. Two Christians who marry have recognized the call of the Lord in their own love story, the vocation to form one flesh and one life from two, male and female. And the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony envelops this love in the grace of God, it roots it in God himself. By this gift, and by the certainty of this call, you can continue on assured; you have nothing to fear; you can face everything together!
