Though apologetics isn’t usually what I do around here, I was reading an awesome blog post and just had to share it: What The Catholic Church Teaches About Contraception And Why. I thoroughly recommend giving it a proper read, especially with the the health insurance/contraception/etc. stuff going on in the USA at the moment.
Digression from my usual rambling over. I haven’t posted much recently because I guess I haven’t felt like I had anything to say. I’m kind of feeling at a standstill and I’m not really sure where to go next. I might be leaving university, well not leaving fully but postponing my studies and re-starting the academic year in September. Which would obviously delay any potential entrance until 2013 but I don’t want to waste my education and I feel that taking the suspension would be in the best interest of my education. I’m not sure if it’ll go through, I need to speak to someone about it, but it would give me time to discern and reflect more before returning to my studies in the autumn. It would also let me start some kind of work in my parish, I’ve been feeling recently I want to be more active in my new parish. Ideally I’d love to work with some kind of discernment or vocations ministry, helping other young people to be open to God’s call for their lives. But I’ll take anything if I’m totally honest, I just want to feel connected to the parish more. Because of all the university stuff I’ve been in kind of a funk lately so hopefully once I sort that out things will become clearer.
