“Love does not have to be perfect for us to value it.

” The other person loves me as best they can, with all their limits, but the fact that love is imperfect does not mean that it is untrue or unreal.”

Pope Francis, The Joy of Love

Welcome Letter from Anne DeSantis

Love is so much more than erratic, Hollywood passion. Married couples tell us it’s more than a feeling. It’s a choice.

But some of us haven’t been lucky in love. We’ve loved and lost. Some are afraid they’ll never find the love of their life.

We’re here to tell you that if you’re single, your beloved is out there! If you’re engaged, or married, then you’re probably looking for ways to keep the love light alive – especially in this pandemic.

This the good news of the Gospel – God hungers for each of us to live a deeply fulfilled and happy life.

We all yearn for the saga hidden in the Song of Songs, where a couple find a deep, burning love for each other, a love that overcomes every trial. Is true love possible? And, if it is, what do we have to do to find our own? How do we keep it kindled after ten years of marriage?

You’re not alone. Join us to discover the real, thrilling meaning to romance, and how we create happily-ever-after in the real world.

Be a Magnetic Catholic!

Lonely Catholics risk becoming bystanders.

We need  to regroup, make friends, and turn into first-responders! The SmartCatholics community helps us be magnetic Catholics in the modern world. 

If this is your first time hearing about SmartCatholics, read the About Page to learn more.

We're a mission Church, united to Pope Francis’ call to bring the joy of the Gospel to every corner of the world - starting with ourselves.

Catholic brands we love:

Why you should join this community:

We need somewhere online that's ours, where we can

  • Uplift and inspire each other, and make new friends
  • Swap stories and ideas (not just advice!)
  • Be free of toxicity, trolls, and ads. (Bye bye, Facebook. We love you, but...)

We need more than just information. We need insights we can trust. We need friendship to help us live lives of hope and meaning.


Who this community is not for:

For any community to mean something and take action, there must be focus. And our community exists for a clear goal: unity, friendship, and formation.

Pope Francis is a source of unity for us. Please don't enter if you reject Pope Francis and the 2nd Vatican Council, thrive on impending apocalyptic prophecies, polarized politics, and constant argument. 

There are plenty of other groups out there for you! Discussion on all topics is welcome, but bad manners aren't. Ever. Offenders are warned or removed. God love you!
