Keep yourself pure... (1 Timothy 5:22)
"Do not listen to those who tell you that chastity is passe. In your hearts you know that true love is a gift from God and respects his plan for the union of man and woman in marriage." --Pope John Paul II, St. Louis, Missouri
Think About That
The Church teaches that there is a sacred union between the physical body and the spiritual life. So, the most intimate ways of expressing our sexuality are always to be tied to the gift of love in the context of marriage. But there are lots of voices that tell you otherwise. Don't be fooled by those voices.
This week pay attention to all the voices that tell you that premarital sex is just something teens do. When you hear that voice, pause and remember that these are false truths. Choose to live a chaste life.
Say A Prayer
Lord, help me, in the midst of temptations, to live a chaste life. And help me to remember that, if it is your will, I might someday enjoy the fullness of your love in marriage.
