7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 40

— 1 —   This Week’s Post:  The Wisdom of Chastity ~ A Guest Post by Morgan  Thank you, Morgan!  I have really enjoyed these guest posts and look forward to getting back into blogging.  Remember where we left off?  Yes, let’s pick things up there next week!

— 2 —  Cardinal Francis George: Oh my goodness, he is amazing!  Check out this article where he responds to criticism from “Catholic” politicians who don’t like the fact that he defunded a pro-gay marriage group.  The best line?

“Jesus is merciful, but he is not stupid”   Cardinal Francis George  

 — 3 —  Moses and The Veil:  The readings at Mass this week were interesting! Did you notice that Moses had a Veil??

When he finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.
Whenever Moses entered the presence of the LORD to converse with him, he removed the veil until he came out again. On coming out, he would tell the Israelites all that had been commanded.
Then the Israelites would see that the skin of Moses’ face was radiant; so he would again put the veil over his face until he went in to converse with the LORD.” Book of Exodus 34:29-35

— 4 — How To Talk To Your Daughter About Her Body:  This was good. 

— 5 —  When He Breaks Up With You:  This advice from Maura at Made In His Image was spot on: 

1. Don’t text him. Let’s be real, we have all been there. It’s late at night, you’re feeling lonely or sad and you want to talk to him, so you text him. Don’t do it! Resist the urge and call one of your girlfriends instead. Clinging to false emotional attachment is not healthy. Sure, you miss him and that’s okay, but don’t text him, as it will only prolong the inevitable.

— 6 — Spotlight On: This week’s spotlight is on Raquel from Story of a Rose for her post in the Not Alone Series.  This week’s topic was Resources for Catholic Women.  Raquel pulled together a fantastic list of resources.  Great job, Raquel! Oh, and go check out her gorgeous baby girl!   

 — 7 — Connect the Dots: This article discusses the link between pornography and sex trafficking.  I would like to take it two steps further.  It all begins with contraception.

 Contraception -> Abortion -> Pornography ->  Sex Trafficking

 God love and bless you!
