The Love That Satisfies (Youth)
All young people have at least this is common: they desire joy! Joy is impossible without love, and romantic love is impossible without chastity. In this high-energy presentation, Matt proposes that the virtue of chastity is for those who desire joy and that any sexual relationship devoid of this virtue will always disappoint. Backed up with compelling statistics and engaging personal stories, Matt challenges audience members to open their minds and hearts and embrace the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.
Parenting the Internet Generation (Parent)
Pornography is a pervasive problem today for people of all ages, especially teens. However, many parents aren’t sure how to protect their families, beyond using traditional internet filters. In this presentation, Matt Fradd offers parents a detailed look at the way pornography harms us and offers practical strategies that parents need to implement if they are to protect their children from the lies of an over-sexualized culture.
Matt Fradd experienced a profound conversion at World Youth Day in Rome in 2000 and afterward committed himself to inviting others to know Jesus Christ and the Church Christ founded.
