Pauline shared, “When we were young sex and sexuality were not talked about. Some considered it sinful. I remember feeling excited when from Vatican II we heard that sex is good. Marriage Encounter and later Theology of the Body helped us to deepen that understanding.” Others added, “There is too much promiscuity these days and purity and chastity have gone out the window. Our children – men and women – have relationships with other partners. Their kids are also into sex much too early and in schools these days homosexuality is almost talked about as normal.” “Now our kids can probably teach us a few things.” “And yet there is a deeper honesty about sexuality as well.”
How long will it be till they are pure in Israel? From Hosea 8:4-13.
Pope Francis In no way can we consider the erotic dimension of love simply as a permissible evil or burden to be tolerated for the good of the family. Rather it must be seen as a gift from God that enriches the relationship of the spouses. AL152.
