Pope Benedict: Proper Understanding of Sexuality
A Fundamental Right for Children
Message Correlates with Stand with Children's Mission
VATICAN, March 9, 2012 -- Pope Benedict XVI gave a strong message about children, sexuality, and marriage Friday, in his message to bishops from Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota during their ad limina visit. His words resonated with the Stand with Children project which draws on the particular wisdom of Blessed John Paul and Pope Benedict, asserting the natural rights of the child. Children receiving a distorted understanding about human sexuality propagated by the culture and powerful interests are being deprived of a fundamental human right to know the truth about love and relationships that will contribute to their flourishing.
