Are Women Basically Mothers at Heart?

And now I find myself realizing that I’ve been taking being a man for granted more than I thought. Still, I thank God very much, for I have found more hope in this chance to learn more yet again!

Women today are confused about who they are called to be. If we feel called to be full-time mothers, society seems to dismiss us as vintage models, out of step with the modern feminist agenda. I know I often felt embarrassed because I did not have a real job as I mothered nine kids.

Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) had a lot to say about the nature of women. She was a Jewish German philosopher who converted to Catholicism, became a Discalced Carmelite nun, and died in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Initially, she struggled intellectually with the whole idea that women were different than men. In the end, instead of denying her gender, she looked to her body as the image of her soul. Katharina Westerhorstmann discusses Stein’s view of women in On the Nature and Vocation of Women: Edith Stein’s Concept against the Background of a Radically…

Why We Have a Large Family

If I hadn’t known about my dad, his siblings, and their parents, then I probably wouldn’t have even considered reading this in the first place. Such wonders, indeed. 😀

joy of nine9

Even though my large family has faced hard times and even suffered, I could not imagine life without every one of my kids in my life.

I did not plan on having a large family; I had never even held a baby before our firstborn. I had moved east with Michael after our first baby was born which cut me off from daily contact with friends and family.

Although I enjoyed living in the country, raising our own vegetables and later even all our own meat, it was an isolated existence. I felt like Ruth in a foreign land but without family support because Michael’s mother was busy with a huge extended family. In addition, my husband struggled with depression. Worldly opinion screamed we should not have any more children.

The question we had struggled with for years was,“How could we remain faithful to Church teaching when Natural…

Contraception Destroys Marital Chastity, Marriage, the family … civilization

I support the Catholic Church’s teachings regarding contraception because I have known about the bad things that occur when sex is treated like a toy, and not because “They said so.” This article led me to hating my perversion more, and I thank God very much for the help.

Littlemore Tracts

This was published today on TheCatholicThing.Org because they have a much larger readership than this poor blog. One Christian example is worth a ton of words, even those coming from a Church Synod.

Chastity: the Crucial Message of a Canonization

To my way of thinking, the single most important event that will occur during the 2015 Synod on Marriage and the Family will be one over which the participating bishops will engage in no discussion and take no votes. Indeed, I think the most inspired decision surrounding this whole Synod is to have the canonization of St. Thérèse’s parents – Zelie and Louis Martin – take place this Sunday.

The Church has always pointed to the lives of saints to teach us the great truths of our faith. In this case, the example is not only the fidelity of this…

Probably An Insane Shipper’s Porn

Author’s Note: Hm, it’s been about a month since I last wrote a story for this series, and I’ve been thinking of interesting titles for future stories that will be parts of this series. Also, I wonder who’s interested in making illustrations for this series…? But hey, before thinking about having someone draw illustrations for this series, I’d really like honest constructive feedback on this series and on each of its stories. I should put more effort into gathering honest constructive feedback properly too.

Oh, and one more thing: I don’t think this story would actually count as porn. As tempting as it is to my annoying perversion, I hate writing porn. Why I titled this story that way, well…it seems like a lot of people these days think too much in the shallow depths of their minds.  I’d like to make you aware of that annoying thing, dear nutshellcrackers, and I’d like help in beating that attitude up.

Why Traditional Marriage is NOT Discrimination

And here’s a follow-up to my previous reblog, which was about defending marriage.

Also, I love it so much when conversations and arguments are done calmly and respectfully, you know. Freaking nuts! ^_^

#DefendMarriage

I don’t want society to rip apart its foundation, which is the family–the basic unit of society, you know. Oh, and if you ask me about homosexuality and why I don’t approve of it, I’ll say that…well, that’s not how sex works.

And the by the way, I may not approve of homosexuality, but that doesn’t mean that I’m obliged to rain hatred on the existences of homosexuals. What I’m trying to beat up is the sin, not the sinner’s existence. Hating a person’s existence is pretty much ignoring their potential for being good people, and ignoring that potential is an attitude that I’d like to rain imaginary bombs on.

Anyway, friendship for the win! And #DefendMarriage, too. Freaking nuts.

The Catholic Husband

I spend alot of time talking about marriage and its importance. This is a cause I believe in wholeheartedly, and without reservation. If we do not take a stand now then marriage as God himself instituted will be lost to our society. Many of us are faced with the choice of talking or acting. This is an action everyone can take. This petition is important – and it provides a peaceful and democratic way to ensure our voices are heard and our numbers counted on this issue. If ever there was a time to step forward and be counted – this is it. Do it for your wife or husband, do it for your children and their children, but just do it. Take 3 minutes out of your life and sign the petition.

We will never be heard unless we speak aloud with one voice, in deafening solidarity.

After you…

Take Sex, Romance, and Marriage More Seriously, Tobby!

“The Overlord Bear and Chaotic Pervertedness” –a drawing by The Overlord Bear

Ah, Tobby…

Have you been jerking off again today?

What, you’re asking me why I’m talking about such a “sensitive” topic here so casually?

Oh, come on, Tobby!

Everyone’s bound to talk about sex at least once in their lives!

And also, the world needs to take sex, romance, and marriage more seriously,

So I’ll begin talking right here, right now!

Lust has been messing your brain up, huh?

You’re disrespecting sex, romance, and marriage, Tobby!

Well, don’t get too worked up, man!

Relax!

Let’s deal with this step by step.

Sex isn’t mainly for pleasure, Tobby boy!

If it were, then what in the freaking world would reproduction be for, some shameful result of “sex gone wrong?”

Romance isn’t all about getting into a girl’s pants, Tobby!

And love and sexual attraction are two different things!

If you say that you “love” a girl because of her “really sexy and really hot” physical appearance,

Then let me whisper this to your ear:

It.

Will.

Go.

Away.

Someday.

Remember what that student-teacher once told you and your classmates during your last year of high school?

“If you’re going to look for a girlfriend,

Then you’re looking for someone you’ll be marrying.”

I think he meant it like that, agh, my freaking memory, correct me if I got it wrong, dear certain student-teacher.

Anyway, if you’re looking for a girlfriend,

It better be someone who will accept you for who you are

And it better be someone who you will accept for who she is.

And that’s where dating comes in!

So that you and your date would know more about each other!

Not freaking end up having sex just for pleasure, thinking that you and your date are in “true love” with each other!

Ah, I feel like this is something that most of today’s society would insult.

Well, you can say that I have a different sense of morality,

But when I think about it,

Making sex to be something that’s mainly meant for pleasure…

I think it’s selfish,

And I think it also disrespects the value of the family.

You know, I don’t think sex is a bad thing.

What’s bad is the trending attitude towards it.

I think sex is a big responsibility,

Something that only married couples are allowed to do.

And I think the youths of today should be taught the right attitude towards sex at the right time,

And I think parents should be one of those teachers when it comes to teaching the right attitude towards not only sex, but also romance and marriage.

Ah, anyway, it looks like you now have this tendency–or maybe an addiction–to jerk off just to feel good while looking at certain women as objects of pleasure, huh?

Well, I’ll help you get over it.

And I know there’s someone out there who’s willing to help you get over it.

Let’s overcome this issue of yours, step by step.

You want to get happily married, have a happy family with kids, and help make the world a kinder and friendlier place along with them someday, right?

Well, no need to rush in finding the right girl for you.

I believe that you’ll find her

If you have patience

And if you put your mind into finding her!

If you need to talk about sex, romance, and marriage again,

Then feel free to do so!

Time for a self-reminder again, then:

Take sex, romance, and marriage more seriously, Tobby!

Oh, and please stop looking at pornography, too, Tobby. You already know why I’m telling you this, you know.

Wake Up from the Illusion and Focus

“Dude, what are you looking at there?”

A boy, while looking at questionable stuff on the Internet through his computer, suddenly heard his chair talk.

“Are you talking to me, chair?” the boy asked.

“Yeah, I’m talking to you,” the chair replied. “Oh, you know what, I’ll just ask the table. Table, what’s he looking at there on his computer?”

“He’s looking at really pervy stuff,” the table immediately replied.

“What? Hey!” the boy exclaimed to the table.

“Dude, we’re trying our best to make you focus on your work already,” the chair said with seriousness. “Don’t make this harder for us, and most of all, don’t make this harder for yourself.”

“You wanted to finish the important work that you need to finish, right?” the table asked. “Focus and go finish it already!”

“Dude, I’ve been in your ears for like more than an hour already,” the boy’s music player told him. “Just play the music already and focus!”

“And stop lying on me just to jerk off and stain me with your fluids!” the bed said to the boy. “Look, even your shorts are now complaining!”

“Yeah!” said the boy’s shorts. “Your freaking waste of fluids stink! Stop wasting such juices on me! The other shorts and I already want to go on strike because of that filthy habit of yours!”

Suddenly, the door to the boy’s room opened, and in burst a basket of dirty shorts.

“STOP STAINING US WITH YOUR WASTE OF FLUIDS!”

Seeing all this weirdness occurring around him, he then realized something.

“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

He was having a nightmare.

And then he woke up after he realized that fact.

He woke up with a sweating body and a racing heart. He was breathing fearfully as he was looking up to the ceiling of his bedroom.

“I should really stop being a procrastinator and a pervert,” the boy then said to himself.

With that, he began his difficult journey on the road to become a better person.
