With discussions on love, marriage, and sexuality today often leading to confusion and division, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has introduced a new perspective with their latest initiative, “Love Means More.”

Led by the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life, and Youth chaired by Bishop Robert Barron of Winona-Rochester, this initiative aims to provide clarity and compassion through its comprehensive website.

“Love Means More” is designed as a valuable tool for everyone—from Catholic catechists to seekers of any or no religious background. The website delves into the complexities of love, challenging the superficial notions promoted by cultural narratives. According to Bishop Barron, “true love is deeper than just feeling good; it’s about following Christ’s example of sacrificial love.”

The initiative addresses a wide range of topics within human sexuality, including the true meaning of love, the nature of marriage, and the challenges of modern societal views on LGBT issues and pornography. It seeks to engage in a cultural conversation, offering answers to foundational questions such as the essence of love, its purpose, and the goals it seeks to achieve.

By renewing efforts from the 2011 “Marriage: Unique for a Reason” campaign, “Love Means More” broadens its scope to explore the perennial question, “What is love?” in today’s context. Bishop Barron said “this campaign is a response to the confusing and polarizing conversations surrounding love and sexuality in our culture.”

The initiative is a collaborative effort, incorporating insights from bishops, pastors, educators, and health professionals to create a resource that resonates with a wide audience. As the website continues to evolve, the USCCB hopes it will become an essential resource for those seeking to understand love’s true meaning and live in accordance with it.
