Men and women, boys and girls, experience the joys and travails of love and life. Everyone longs for the full satisfaction of the will to give itself entirely to the beloved. However, there are perennial and modern challenges to reckon with … lust, unfaithfulness, instant gratification, worldliness, excessive love of body, pleasure for pleasure sake, in short, selfishness. We are all called by our humanity to get out of our “self” and be completely open to the “other”. This is the only way we can guarantee our happiness despite the many difficulties and dilemmas that we have to confront each day.

Jason Evert, a young husband and father and foremost advocate of pure love in the United States, is coming to the Philippines to talk to minds and hearts of youth, parents, and professional educators. In four days, on 25 February to 1 March 2011, he is expected to help shape lives towards their common destiny of real love, fidelity, and wellbeing. Hear him, LIVE!
