Support A Catholic Speaker Month: Monica Ashour
Matt Warner over at Fallible Blogma had this great idea to start Support A Catholic Speaker Month to raise awareness about the many Catholic Speakers out there and to support them. Support a Catholic Speaker Month was actually in October, but better late than never, right? Hopefully next year, we’ll actually make this post in the right month!

The Catholic Pro-Life Committee is glad to highlight local Theology of the Body speaker Monica Ashour. Monica is the executive director and co-founder of Theology of the Body Evangelization Team (TOBET).

I had the pleasure of roaming the halls of the State Capitol with Monica earlier this spring when we went to advocate for pro-life and family bills during the Texas Legislature.

At one point while we were speaking with a pro-abortion aide, he asked about the morals of In Vetro Fertilization (IVF). I knew a good bit about the bills we were advocating for and a fair amount about abortion in general, but I was at a loss to defend any position on IVF.

Monica didn’t miss a beat. She was in there so quick with facts and enough concrete information to satisfy the aide we were trying to persuade/educate.

In addition to the greater Dallas-area, Monica has traveled across the country spreading the word about Pope John Paul II’s message.

Check out the TOBET website for lots more info on talks, dates, speakers and lesson layouts.

Read Monica’s bio.

I’ll leave you with this short video I found by Google-ing her name. She’s out there. Take advantage of her!
