Fortunately, Bill May’s book Getting the Marriage Conversation Right not only spells out the true understanding of marriage according to natural law, but also gives practical guidelines for dialoguing with those who propose or support alternative definitions of marriage.
Succinctly and with clarity, May explains why the defense of marriage between a man and a woman is what is best for children–and our society.

Are you willing to defend the definition of marriage?
Why not consider joining the National Organization for Marriage in their historic “Marriage March” in Washington D.C. on March 26, 2013.
On March 26th the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Perry case, which will determine if Proposition 8 – the citizens initiative approved by the people of California in 2008 to protect marriage – is constitutional or not. More importantly, the question of same-sex “marriage” and the right of Americans to protect marriage will be decided. We believe it is imperative that political leaders, the media, and the culture see that we care about protecting marriage enough to stand up and march for it.
(To read more about the March, visit its homepage.)
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Dr. Robert George, and many other prestigious speakers will be presenting at the event.

Also, Emmaus Road author Dan Burke, along with the IRL, will be providing a copy of Navigating the Interior Life to all in attendance. Here Dan explains this endeavor:
The goal is to both express appreciation to them and to encourage them to seek out and also provide spiritual direction if they are not already doing so. Even more exciting is that Archbishop Naumann of the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas has agreed to provide a letter to all attendees commending your generosity, and also offering the great work of the AVI Spiritual Mentorship School. The school was established to to serve all the faithful who recognize the call to feed His sheep.

It was announced today that the conclave to elect the successor to Benedict XVI will open March 12. In the meantime, what should the Church be doing?
Dan Burke has an excellent article at the National Catholic Register about our duty to pray:
If we don’t pray, God’s grace will not be granted. We are God’s chosen means to accomplish His will. Prayer is the way that we cooperate with Him in the accomplishment of His will.
