'No Sex Before Marriage'

Ruth Russell is a 20-year-old Australian who speaks with conviction and clarity about her choice to remain a virgin until marriage, and to be chaste for her whole life. She was interviewed the other day on Australian TV, in the context of World Youth Day.

I came across this video on Dawn Patrol, the blog of Dawn Eden, a journalist and writer from New York who found her way from Judaism to Catholicism and from non-chastity to chastity. She is speaking at various functions being held in Sydney during WYD. She's also blogging from there at the moment.

Ruth has a firm grasp of the Church's teaching on sexuality, of its centrality to marriage and of the importance of a married couple being open to life.
