Fr. Michael Schmitz explains Authentic Love
Through my work with the Lighthouse Catholic Media Apostolate, I have heard talks by a fantastic, young, Catholic Priest, Fr. Michael Schmitz. Fr. Schmitz has phenomenal presentations on our CDs and MP3s.He is the Chaplain at the Newman Center at the University of Minnesota-Deluth.
Last night he came to speak at Epiphany Cathedral in Venice. He gave one of the best talks for the times we are in. He tackled two of the most difficult topics in the Church and in the world today; contraception and same sex attraction. With compassion, clarity and humor he shared how Authentic Love is the yearning that we all have, because we are made in the image and likeness of God.
Neither Contraception nor same sex attraction are easy to speak about. Almost everyone we know struggles with one or the other. When the topic is brought up, there is usually plenty of anger, denial, misunderstanding and division. When someone wants to share the beauty of the Church's teaching on these topics, they are often called "haters" or worse.
That's why we all need to listen and re-listen to this tremendous talk:

Whether you agree or disagree with Church Teaching, this talk in an oasis of clear thought. Please listen for yourself and let me know what you think. This talk is for each of us, for someone we love, and so we all are able to better articulate the beautiful plan God has for all men and women~ His own life of grace and authentic love.
