    Unfortunately, the real appreciation of truth and beauty is dependent on fearless innocence.

    The rejection of Church teachings on sexuality, which are actually true, is what undermines faith and the hunger for truth and beauty. What is needed is a herculean intellectual effort to understand this and then convey the truth by all means including social media. Sexuality and the deceptive nature of promiscuity are why the Church’s teachings are rejected by the young, but until they can be convinced that virginity until marriage for life is the best valid option, anything else will result in a rejection of beauty,truth and faith as well, usually for money.

    The most intelligent are the creators of beauty, a beauty that benefits all who experience it, but a true exposition of the objective “scientific biological” reality which is found in unchanging Church revelation, contrary to immediate experience associated with sexual acts, is the most urgent intellectual task facing the Church.
