Relativism – How to defend your Family

Team 5 presents this week:

    Moral relativism is the view that ethical standards, morality, and positions of right or wrong are culturally-based and therefore subject to a person’s individual choice. We can all decide what is right for ourselves. You decide what’s right for you, and I’ll decide what’s right for me. Moral relativism says, “It’s true for me, if I believe it.” This idea of interpreted truth and morals utilized for the convenience of Society poses a real threat to our Catholic faith and to our individual families.

Let’s talk about sex

In preparation for our first ever discussion on sex and intimacy in marriage (Sex in the Marriage: as God intended it) scheduled for 2/25, we are planning to engage Dr. William Wester, a retired Catholic sex therapist who also attends IHM.  He conducted discussions like this as a therapist and did many pre-Cana discussions.  He asked us to submit questions related to sex and intimacy as it relates to the health of our marriage – anonymously – ahead of our meeting.  Please consider your appropriate questions on the topic and fill out a index card at the meeting Friday. Each index card will be sealed in a separate envelope.  Again, please review the syllabus topic and consider your questions for submissions.

  • When communication breaks down & barriers build up.
    Friday, March 11, 2011 @ 6:03 AM at Hageman Hall 

      Real marital communication takes time, effort, and planning. It is not for the fainthearted. If you want to have good communications with your wife you will need to put some effort into it. Marriage depends on good communications; poor communication is the number one reason for failed marriages. We can get so wrapped up in our daily struggles that we avoid putting in the effort needed to communicate with our wives and children. Presented by Team 2
