    "Should We Break Up: A Catholic Guide to Breakups part 1"

"Thank you for this post. It’s given me a lot to pray on and I needed it."


"Thank you for this. It feels that God has gently spoken to my heart (and mind) through your post."


       "The Art of Heartbreak: A Catholic Guide to Breakups part 2"

"This is an older article, but I wanted to thank you for writing it. I am in the middle of a dead 5 year relationship with my boyfriend. I must say I have not prayed in years, in fact my spiritual life has been dead for some time. But this has beautifully shown me that I don’t need to stay with him... he is not a bad person. And I am afraid to hurt him. But I cannot get over the hurt he has caused me over these years. I know he did not mean to, and I don’t fault him for it. But it hurt me nonetheless. At this point I think it would be better if we broke up. I just hope he can’t let me go..."
