At this Month's Veritas meeting we will continue with a theme and look at the tremendous importance which marriage has in a true understanding of the Catholic Faith as a whole: the sacramental life, the spiritual life, the moral life, and how all of this is a part of Christ’s redeeming and spousal love for the Church, His Bride. The talk will also include a brief history of magisterial teaching on marriage from the Council of Trent onward, and give particular focus to the importance of sexual complementarity, chastity, and an honest look at the threat which contraception increasingly poses to the marital bond.
As always, any young adult (18-39..ish) is welcome to attend, Catholic or not. If you are not a young adult, please do not join us.
We want to thank our friends at the Monk's Cellar for providing us with some great deals on the best food around. You buying dinner is the best way to thank them. The beer is free to you and paid for by St. Joseph Marello Parish. It starts flowing freely at 7pm. Show up early for a good seat. Our events are usually standing room only - packed with amazing young adults. New faces are always welcome, so bring your friends.
Here's the Facebook Invite.
