Sexuality

The Causes and Context study (1950-2010) integrates research from sociocultural, psychological, situational, and organizational perspectives, and provides information on why the sexual abuse of minors by Catholic priests in the United States occurred as it did. The Causes and Context study is an extension of the previous study, Nature and Scope, which addressed the problem from 1950 to 2002 and was published in February 2004. The Nature and Scope study provided information about what happened, including the number of abuse incidents, the distribution of offenses geographically and over time, the characteristics of the priests against whom allegations were made and the minors they abused, the Catholic Church’s response to the allegations, and the financial impact of the abuse incidents.

Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan

by USCCB Publishing
$7.95

Since the beginning of the world, marriage and blessing have been inseparable. The blessing of marriage survived unharmed from our break with you through original sin. Jesus not only restored, but elevated the blessing of marriage to a sacrament.

As a sign of Christ's living presence in the world, marriage is special blessing to our communities. This statement recaptures and further explores the blessing of marriage as a public commitment between a man and woman. It emphasizes the unitive and procreative aspects of marriage, the relationship between the two aspects, and the sacramental nature of marriage. There is also a deep and thorough discussion of the contemporary challenges to marriage in today's world and how the Church addresses those challenges.
