Sex in Marriage: 6th Commandment, Part 6 – Jun 18 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 79


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jun 18, 2022, on how the 6th Commandment relates to sex in marriage. He distinguishes the several types of love with the goal being agape. All others have their place but agape is first, selfless love.

JPII Gaudium et Spes

ccc 2360 Sex finds its home in Marriage, Sex outside of marriage is like being homeless

Paul VI Humanae Vitae Paragraph 11 - Observing the Natural Law - all relations should be oriented toward pro-creation

Sacramentality of relations in marriage

Paul Quay on Humanae Vitae

When reduced to mere pleasure it loses its purpose all forms of sex are permissible

Until death do us part, exclusivity, ultimate romance

Unitive and procreative.

Called to be co-creators with God which is related to being a co-redeemer with Christ.

The child is the fruit of mutual love.

What chastity means

two extremes to avoid, Refusing out of prudishness but also avoiding treating your spouse as an object

Avoid excess, use temperance

Avoid relations when it makes sense not to out of prudence

God promises a beautiful life but not necessarily an easy one

Ave Maria!
