Avoiding Sexual Assault - what every Catholic girl should know.

April 2013 135

About six years (and 30 pounds) ago I gave a talk to our confirmation candidates at church. See below. One of the things I discussed with the girls was the importance of keeping your senses about you when you are out in social situations. That means keeping away from drugs and alcohol and being aware of your surroundings. 

I started thinking about that this week with the accusations of sexual misconduct towards Judge Kavanaugh came out. One of the questions in my mind, and presumably in the minds of any investigators will be, was the accusor also impaired by alcohol or drugs and if so, how trustworthy are her 30+-year-old memories?

I guess we'll find out in the coming days. In the meantime, I think reminding young ladies how TO BE conscientious Catholic Young Ladies is worth reviewing.
