La Creatividad al Servicio de la Vida: ¡Bebu te estamos Esperando!

Para una futura mamá el embarazo es una de las experiencias más emocionantes de la vida. Es común verla feliz, con una sonrisa cálida dibujada en su rostro, fuente de frescura y ternura.  “Ninguna obra maestra de ningún artista puede igualar la creación de un niño hecho por una madre. El éxito no solo se […]

the wounds of Christ

I recently attended our university student fall retreat, where the speaker was Fr. Bryan Duggan, the vocations director. The theme for the weekend was wounds, what they were, how to identify them and how to heal them. The topic of wounds is quite relevant to us today; it seems like humans are doing everything possible […]

Simpsons and Simba

We here in modern Western culture find ourselves in this vortex of self-creation and total self-determination. We worry about how we are perceived and we want to be sure that we can be who we want to be.

The Hammer Seeing Nails Part 1- IPPF & Adolescent Statistics

One cannot stay informed about the world of international health policy without keeping up with reports and initiatives issued by Planned Parenthood.  The challenges of reading Planned Parenthood are twofold: their endnotes are inadequate and their statistics are questionable.  After looking at their sources and comparing the numbers I have found a great number of […]

Diagnosed with bone cancer when she was ten weeks pregnant, 24-year old Ashley Bridges decided there was “no way [she] could kill a healthy baby because [she was] sick.” Eight […]
