Maturing Gender Gap

People often say girls mature more quickly than males. This is a gap that only seems to increase well into the young adult years.

The-Woman-You-marry

Generally speaking, we could likely agree ( perhaps begrudgingly for some) that women tend to learn how to take care of themselves on a basic level more quickly than men. Scientists at Newcastle University in the UK shows this gap in maturing is in part due to the female sex taking hold of brain optimization earlier than the male sex, thereby leading to earlier skills of survival.

True Feminism is Not Planned Parenthood

Planned-Parenthood-Sticker_jpg_800x1000_q100Over the last several weeks Planned Parenthood has been exposed in multiple situations illegally selling aborted babies.  You can watch and listen first hand as the negotaitions are made that work to sidestep how the financial benefit appears on paper and to the public. 

Undercover investigators are taken into the room where aborted babies are stored and sorted.  Videos show clinic workers identifying pre-born parts: "it's a boy", a "twin", "leg", "kidney", "brain", or "eye balls".  These body parts are sorted identifying the humanity of the pre-born.  

Planned Parenthood even admits to selling intact aborted children which may mean they are peforming illegal types of abortion like partial birth abortion, which was outlawed in 2007 by the Supreme Court.  In addition there is the question of children being born alive and killed outside of the womb since some "specimens" are obtained intact by medical researchers.  

Here are two resources to stay on top of what is taking place  regarding Planned Parenthood and how you can both further the message and discuss the videos.

Hearts and Minds

I am excited to announce that I am co-hosting a new weekly radio show called Hearts and Minds produced in partnership with Catholic Answers and the Diocese of San Diego.  Over the last year I've developed a new found friendship with my co-host Trent Horn, an apologist and speaker with Catholic Answers.  

Together Trent and I look at timely issues from a Catholic perspective and see how we, as Catholics, understand and share those events with other people.

Baby Performs in the Womb

Every day children are aborted for reasons from an unplanned pregnancy to the health of the mother and child.  Yet, there are small signs like these that lead many to choose life and overcome their reason to take a life.  

11109161_895211363875983_8177699945411980647_n

Doctors believed this baby likely wouldn't live.  The parents chose not to have an abortion after doctor's recommendation.  Why?  Because in the ultrasound their child gave them a thumbs up.  Read the full story on Life News

This isn't the only miracle we see from the womb . . .

 

The child can do many things in the womb, but are we watching and willing to let them live even when we don't see?

Cinderella a Theology of the Body

Admit it, you were dying to see Cinderella too!  Last week I finally dragged my boyfriend to see Cinderella featuring some of the cast from Downton Abbey.  (An all time favorite of mine!  Who’s your favorite character?)   

 

I went to see the movie with my boyfriend, who works in the media industry producing branded entertainment content.  He commented after the movie how confusing it was to him because there wasn’t that usual ‘all hope is lost’ moment.  

cinderella_glamour_19nov15_pr_b_810x540

I think Cinderella understanding her own existence through the gift of self prevented us from grasping an ‘all hope is lost’ moment.  While Cinderella was in a horrible circumstance she still knew who she was and no one could take that from her.  By her gift of self in the simple acts of service to others she saw her value even when others didn’t.  

 

While most of us don’t find ourselves in a Cinderella indentured servant like situation we still face challenges that are difficult to fight our way out of emotionally and sometimes physically.

Tattoo Artist to Monk

“Six years ago, Mount Angel Abbey's serene hilltop campus shook, as leather-clad Bobby Love rolled in on his motorcycle. Love removed his helmet revealing pierced ears and a mop of dreadlocks. With tattoos on his hands, arms and neck, he looked like an extra on "Sons of Anarchy" not a someone attending a retreat for those who might become Catholic monks.”

Read Statesman Journal Article: ‘Tattoo artist turned monk: not your typical art story’

 

635508806066670283-Monk5319Too often we think pop culture and the Church are disconnected…  Actually, we think  they're enemies.  I know I buy into thinking this at times.  

 

This tattoo artist become monk is a reminder of how contrary that popular notion is.  

 

If that were the case Brother Andress Love never would have become a monk and here is why.  He was a passionate artist yet missing something in his life.

 

635508806002720283-Monk5304

 

Divorced three times, drugs, and alcohol.  No obligation in the world.  Don’t we all seek freedom?  Yet why do we feel unsatisfied?  

 

635508805998570283-Monk5305"Everything said I should be happy, but I felt very alone and adrift. I looked at myself and realized that I had become a product," Love said. "I was doing art not as personal expression but for what the kids want, what the kids would shell out the coin for."

 

What was he searching for and what did he find in the Church?

Girls: From a Flower to a Bomb

TulipsMost any girls over the age of 14 say other girls are among those who wound them the worse.

You girlfriends are those who can encourage you to conquer the world then undercut you with a simple few words or actions.

Why is this?

We all do this in some way. Think of your own life… OH how easy it is to divide by complaining and negativity.
