Marriage and Sexuality

Our instructor for the discussion of marriage and sexuality on January 13, Janice Chik, put together a very good list of additional resources that you might find helpful.

Obviously, this is a very complex topic and one – like many of the teachings of Christ – that will bear fruit most abundantly in our lives only with further study.  These links will help you study and reflect on the Church’s teaching.
