Your support makes our mission possible!
Your gift supports the vision of a Christian culture that utilizes "the passions" to foster intimacy with Christ and unity with his Church.
Mission EDIFY operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Women's Non-profit Alliance, a 501(c)3 parent organization.
What are the passions?
"The passions are the feelings, the emotions or the movement of the sensible appetite--natural components of human psychology--which incline a person to act or not act in view of what is perceived as good or evil. The principle passions are love and hatred, desire and fear, joy, sadness, and anger."
(Compendium CCC, 370. Libreria Editrice Vaticana, 2006) The Compendioum's source on this topic is the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas.
April is Child Abuse Prevention & Sexual Assault Awareness Month
We must protect God's little ones.
Only 7% are strangers.
Today, I'm sharing staticss from RAINN www.rainn.org I encourage you to visit their website. And then I'll share my thoughts on Monday.
Among cases of child sexual abuse reported to law enforcement:
93% are known to the victim
- 7% are strangers
- 59% are acquaintances
- 34% are family members
Monday, I'll share one of the greatest gifts you can give your child to safeguard them from abuse. Something practical I learned in group therapy many years ago.
