They can, but they can also add to it.
And it all depends on who.
Our modern society, and negligence towards our culture and religion has turned an alarming amount of women into vapid whores with no other desire than the moment.
A vaginal generation of pure carpe diem
But, it can, and will be reversed.
Only with proper awareness and care from the remainder of society.
And it's such a shame. But, I've lost myself several times in fleeting affairs, and I'm afraid of ruining myself.
I cannot disagree with what you're saying, I do understand
Then find a wife, a real wife, at your church or elsewhere, a wholesome place, and court her. Don't date her, court her. Show that you can provide (if you can do so sufficiently, that is)
That's our hope.
Your situation sounds depressing
and it has every right to be.
But it's my earnest belief that a white man today does more harm than good by settling down in the Benedictine order rather than starting a family.
I'm the last heir in my family, this wasn't an easy conclusion
I worry too much about my relationship with the Lord
I think I'd throw away my faith to protect my wife and children
Not quite as visceral as that, but i don't have the words to explain it
There is a way to let those aspects of your life strengthen your faith.
If you look at them as gifts.
I will think about it. I'm not dead set on anything yet. I know the older i get the call for monastic life will grow louder
I wonder how long confessions go. I’ve done the same thing since I was a kid so mine only take about 2 minutes. I just go through the process and list any sins I remember. The Priest never really pries deeper or asks questions. I don’t really need spiritual guidance (any more than an average person does) but I feel kinda underachieving when they last so short. Anyone else have a similar instance?
wish we could have those cool priests who actually wanna help people with advice and stuff
the church has really dropped the damn ball
I know a few like that who help a lot if you go to them, but I just feel like I’m not doing enough because I don’t go to them
well the churh doesnt do enough in my opinion to foment outside of church community activities buti havent looked in my area so i cant be sure of that
Yes, not enough, which is sad since they do the most. Shows how little charity exists today
Talked to some crazy prots at my uni
Literally were trying to tell me the pope is the antichrist
I don't think so
I could be wrong
