Theology of the Old Body

Theology of the Old Body - by Janet E. Smith

Since 2012 Prof. Janet E. Smith has been caring for her mother who has dementia, a time of enormous growth in patience and also admiration – for each other.

With her usual wit, humor, and insight, Prof. Smith shares her anecdotes about herself, BAD (Beleaguered Aging Daughter), and her mother, BAM (Beloved Aged Mother) as they face the challenges of living with, and caring for someone whose world narrows every day. Share in the journey as you discover anew the joy that is found in valuing the dignity of the person with dementia and how fully human they remain through every stage of the illness.

“This time with my mother has been profoundly illuminative of how God cares for those he loves.”
– Prof. Janet E. Smith

Contraception: Why Not – Classic Edition

Contraception is such an accepted fixture in our culture and medical practice that a serious challenge is indeed rare. In this Classic Edition of Contraception: Why Not, Professor Smith provokes her audience to give serious consideration to questions regarding the relationship between contraception, divorce, abortion, poverty, and other social ills. She presents compelling evidence that couples who accept children as a gift from God and who use natural family planning if needed, have happier marriages with dramatically lower divorce rates than the general population. The ground-breaking message in Contraception: Why Not has captivated audiences on national and international levels. This original version has been distributed to over 1 million people worldwide since it was recorded in 1993.

Anticoncepcion: Por Que No

In this ground-breaking presentation by moral theologian Janet E. Smith, Dr. Smith reveals the devastating effects of The Pill on modern society. Touted as a magic potion leading to greater freedom for men and women, stronger marriages, and fewer teenage pregnancies’, contraception has instead been a social disaster. Since the introduction of The Pill in the 1950s, divorces have skyrocketed, more than 40% of children are born out of wedlock, and babies are seen more as a burden than a blessing. In this provocative presentation, Dr. Smith uses updated statistics, decades of research, keen intellect and her sharp wit to exposes the crippling effect that our contraceptive culture has had on our relationships, our families, and our physical and mental health. She proposes that the Church’s teaching on sexuality and natural family planning is the antidote to our culture’s depravity.

Sexual Common Sense – 12 Talk Series

There is no question that our culture is a sexual mess — which translates into a lot of broken hearts and broken lives. The Catholic Church has a wisdom about sexuality derived from Scripture and natural law (good common sense) that too few Catholics know and live. Why is sex outside of marriage so destructive? Why is contraception wrong? What is the conscience and its role in decision making? What is the connection between contraception, abortion, assisted suicide, and same-sex unions? Prof. Janet Smith covers these and other crucial topics in this provocative series of 12 CD presentations.

This series is a valuable training tool for teachers, principals, catechists, youth workers, home schooling parents, or anyone interested in issues of sexuality , contraception, and immorality in our culture.
