Ten Reasons to Be Chaste

25Feb13

What has chastity to do with the issues that we normally deal with on this blog??   Good question.  Everything.   The Catholic Church is quite clear on chastity.   “All Christ’s faithful are called to lead a chaste life in keeping with their particular states of life

The Church’s stance makes sense only if one knows what chastity really is. A clue is in the rest of that sentence from the Catechism: “All Christ’s faithful are called to lead a chaste life in keeping with their particular states of life.” By “states of life,” the Church means that there is unmarried chastity, and there is married chastity.  For more detail on this see, http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/resources/life-and-family/abstinence-and-chastity/10-12-reasons-to-be-chaste/

These 10 reasons give an insight into why chastity is so important to areas such as marriage, children, contraception and abortion.

10. Find Joy in unexpected places

9. Experience true freedom

8. Fornication is a mortal sin

7. Annoy Relatives

6. Be the kind of person  you would want to marry

5. No foams, no jellies, no Pills, No sponges, No Latex, No HIV, No STDs, No “honey its just a cold sore”

4. Build true intimacy, not forced or premature intimacy

3. Deepen your relationship with God

2. Dramatically increase your odds of having a  lasting marriage

1. Learn how to love others the way God loves you!

What a different world we would have if young people waited for marriage before engaging in sexual intercourse and risking their happiness and that of their families and children.
