On The Road To Perfection
Episode 33: Chastity
Chastity… when we talk about this subject we often mumble into our chests something about “carnal knowledge” or the like when talking to small children. Or we flush a deep shade of red when someone of the opposite sex begins such a discussion, but in the end, we always cast it aside as an age old practice. However, with the hookup culture and the ever-vigilant Evil One, we need to understand this important fruit of the Spirit and Cardinal Virtue. NOTE: This topic is may be confusing for children, while Mom and Dad keep a gentle and “G-rated” approach, children may have more questions they need answered. Please be prepared to answer them truthfully to the point where you believe they can understand. Storks can only last for so long!
There are many organizations out there that help us stay chaste. Nick’s blog on romantic love, covenanteyes.com, fightthenewdrug.org, and chastity.com are great resources for staying chaste. Pope St. John Paul II’s Humanae Vitae is related to this subject, it is not long, and will help us better understand the sexual relationship between men and women if we read it. Also, visit pintswithaquinas.com to book Matt Fradd, a superb speaker who is fluent in the subject of chastity. St. Elzéar of Sabran and Bl. Delphine are the examples of a chaste couple Dad mentions.
