At World Youth Day in Brazil this year, I set out to get to know the audience Pope Francis would be addressing to find out their views on the Catholic Church’s teachings regarding sexuality, contraception, abortion, and homosexuality.
Many who attend events during the pope’s visit would welcome an announcement that the Vatican will end its opposition to family planning. It might be too much to hope for, but some of us still believe in miracles.
This week marks the 26th celebration of Catholic World Youth Day. Though discussions of condoms do not appear to be on the official agenda for the week, a group of youth advocates from around the world hopes to make sure attendees hear their message: “Good Catholics Use Condoms.”
