September 2013 Franciscan University Presents as seen on EWTN. In the U.S., the average age of first marriages has risen, the marriage rate has plummeted, and out-of-wedlock births remain sky high. At the same time, the movement to legalize same-sex marriage is gaining traction across the nation. What is the nature of marriage, why does it matter that marriage as an institution is under siege, and what can we, as Catholics, do to turn the tide?
Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement at Franciscan University, leads this timely discussion on how to rebuild a marriage culture with Dr. Patrick Fagan, director of the Marriage and Religious Research Institute at the Family Research Center, and panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.Available on dvd.
