We have a new post up at the USCCB website For Your Marriage.
We are friends with a husband and wife who would not be offended if we described him as a Star Wars geek. Let’s call them Socrates and Sophia. Socrates has populated his basement recreation room with more – let’s call them “collectible action figures,” so as not to arouse the ire of geekdom – than there are people in some small cities! He has seen and brilliantly analyzed every episode in the series multiple times. Socrates holds a Masters Degree in philosophy and shares his cultural knowledge and Catholic faith with his fortunate students. Sophia and Socrates aren’t just sci-fi geeks, they are Catholic geeks as well. They don’t stop at investing in a cultural touchstone, they are also committed to the rock upon which Christ built his church. They even go to the extreme of praying together – every day! We’ve heard of Catholic married couples doing this, but we have never before seen an example of it in the wild.
