For discussion

For Discussion:

  • Given so much difficulty that many experience in relationships, what is the ‘good news’ that the Church offers society in the area of marriage?

  • Read the excerpt from John Paul II’s ‘Novo Millennio Ineunte’ on pp. 415-416 of the USCCA. What happens to society and each one of us if the Church yield’s to cultural pressures?
