Lenten Virtue Challenge 🌱Weed: Lust/Seed: Chastity🌱
Everyone is called to chastity regardless of our vocation. What is chastity? An orientation towards God, His divine plan, and the good of the other by practicing a chaste love in the actions of our body and purity of the heart, mind, and soul.
"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8.
Chastity is an ethos- a transformation of the heart, mind, body, and soul. What does embracing lust feel like? Does lust enslave us? Why is chastity freeing? How do I embrace chastity-single or married? What if I'm broken and weak? We are all called to a love that is free, total, faithful, and fruitful within our respective vocations. #LinkInBio #Newblogpost .
Marriage is NOT the fulfillment of lust or pornography. Marriage IS the fulfillment of love- Christ’s love for us and the Church. Marriage and the marital embrace between a man and woman mirrors the eternal exchange of love between the Three Persons of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. A love that is sacrificial and oriented towards the good of the other. A love that lasts. A love that is free, total, faithful, and fruitful.
