"[S]ometimes parents do not know when or how to approach these topics [sexuality, drugs and alcohol, cutting / self-injury / suicide], yet if they do not talk to their teen about these issues parents essentially allow society (peers, school, television, Internet) to raise and form the moral character of their child." - National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry

"Sexuality, by means of which man and woman give themselves to one another through the acts which are proper and exclusive to spouses, is not something simply biological, but concerns the innermost being of the human person as such. It is realized in a truly human way only if it is an integral part of the love by which a man and woman commit themselves totally to one another until death."
- Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 2361

"You are more than the choices that you've made..."
- Music by Tenth Avenue

"The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.
