The Christian Meaning of Human Sexuality
Expanded Edition
Paul Quay, S.J., Ph.D.

 This book presents the understanding of human sexuality that divine revelation offers us. It is intended primarily for Christian adults who wish to know what kinds of sexual behaviour are right or wrong, and to gain true insight into why such behaviour is right or wrong for those who seek to love and live in Christ. For sexual morality is part of the mystery of our life in Christ and makes full sense only when seen as such.

Kidnapped By The Vatican?
The Unpublished Memoirs of Edgardo Mortara
Vittorio Messori and Edgardo Mortara

As an infant, Mortara was on the point of death and secretly baptized by a Catholic servant employed by his family. He recovered his health, and in the Papal State where his family lived, the law required that he, like other baptized children, receive a Christian education. After several failed attempts to persuade his parents to enroll him in a local Catholic school, in 1858 Pope Pius IX had the boy taken from his family in Bologna and sent to a Catholic boarding school in Rome. There the child grew in faith and eventually responded to the calling to become a Catholic priest.
