Dating in today’s world can be hard. We live in a society where “swiping right” and “ghosting” are a part of our vocabulary and the hook-up culture is widely accepted. For a Catholic trying to find his or her other half, it can seem nearly impossible. How do you find someone who shares the faith, or who wants to get married, or who will understand your belief in the sanctity of marriage?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Cecilia Jean Brennan, a newly-married Catholic content creator, podcast host, and founder of West of Perfection, spoke with CNA about her tips for young Catholics who are dating. Brennen regularly advises young Catholic women through Instagram on topics ranging from the meaning of femininity and modesty in today’s culture to dating and relationship advice in an effort to empower women to find their identity in Christ.
Brennan first addressed the role of discernment with CNA.
“Oftentimes we hear the word ‘discernment’ in the Catholic culture” in regards to a vocation to marriage or religious life, she said. But, she added, “it's so much more than that.”
