Fr. Wade Menezes
Rape and sex crimes, pornography, perversity, prostitution, human trafficking, sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS. All noxious consequences flowing from one common source - the sin of lust, arguably THE social sin of our time. What is it's antidote?
The virtue of chastity, a moral virtue that breaks the bonds of selfishness and moral aggressiveness. It is perhaps, the most maligned moral virtue of our day and time. Predicated upon the notion of sexual license, current attitudes and behaviors have moved the cultural mindset very far from a holy understanding of the human person and his sexuality, and has to great extent, normalized the perverse.
