Young Catholics

It turn out that John Paul II left behind a generation of committed young Roman Catholics who actually take a more conservative position on sex than did their parents. Church leaders call them Generation John Paul II.

They include university students who study the "theology of the body" - John Paul's theological justification for a conservative sexual ethic that includes opposition to contraception, abortion, premarital sex and some forms of assisted reproduction.

While many younger folks were just wrapped up in the aura of John Paul at world youth days, sing ins and the funeral itself, the more serious ones are causing a lot of people to smile while they scratch their heads in wonder.
