God intends us to save ourselves for marriage. Mary is the example we as women should try to live up to and men should strive to treat women with respect and remain a virgin as well and try to live a virtuous life like St. Joseph and how he treated her with reverence. The family is the most fundamental thing in society and God gave us the Holy family to look up to. We should try to live a life of chastity and follow the footsteps of Mary and St. Joseph. St. Joseph respected Mary and Jesus and lived to be there provider and protector of there family. He took Mary as his wife even when she was pregnant and the child wasn’t his. He listened to God and obeyed him to look after them for the rest of his life. He is one of the greatest saints and he remained chaste throughout his whole life out of respect for the Mother of God.
“The exclusive donation of self to God in virginity and celibacy has deep roots in the theology of the body, in the beginning and in the resurrection of the body. Christ’s reference to heaven indicates a life without marriage in which man and woman find the fullness of personal gift and communion of persons through glorification in eternal union with God. This is where celibacy for the sake of the kingdom is grounded. But there remains an essential between continence in this world and heavenly life.” – FR. ROGER J. LANDRY, SUMMARY OF JOHN PAUL II’S THEOLOGY OF THE BODY
The Theology of the Body was written by St. Pope John Paul II, he wrote it on human sexualtiy and the beauty of it, we should not be ashamed of it, but we should be respectful and follow God’s teaches on the manor. Sex is a gift from God that should be treated with respect, it’s pure love for another. Saving yourself goes a lot further then ” my parents said it’s bad” our virginity is something that is sacred and we share it within a marriage, it is part of the marital bond between man, woman, and God. Our gift is not something we abuse, it is an important gift that we should keep so we can learn the meaning of love and witness what God intends for us.
Sex needs to be educated in the right way because the modern way of thinking is to do it with someone you love, but then people start falling in love with as many people as they want. I believe that when you meet the right person the love for that one won’t even compare to the others you so called loved. Then you already gave your virginity away to someone you didn’t truly love. Sex is messy I see it mess with peoples minds and destroy relationships because it’s not used properly. The marriage rate of couples staying together who wait until marriage and use nfp is 98%. In my opinion the stats speak for themselves. We need to learn how to abstain and be fruitful in our actions and stay strong and not let society make decisions for us.
Sex is something that is all over our world, we can’t escape it. Our culture is treating it like it doesn’t mean anything and thats why there are so many problem in America. The sexual abuse rates are extremely high because people feel pressured into sex because they see it everywhere. 1 out of 5 girls will be sexually assaulted, there is no respect for women because society treat them like animals and they let them. They have the reputation for a reason, the women in this country allow themselves to be used making themselves the victims because guys don’t see girls treating themselves with respect so they think why should they. Mostly girls are afraid of what others will think of them or they feel pressured into engaging in something they don’t want to. We need to show girls that they are worth respecting and loving and stop letting society use us for their pleasure.
“Marriage, in the eyes of God, is a beautiful thing that is supposed to bring two souls, two virgins, together and make one.” -anonymous
Society needs to see the point of marriage, everyone craves love it’s in our nature but we need to be educated on how to use it in the right way because today most people are looking to be loved but the question is are they loving back. We must love one another and sacrifice and care for eachother because thats what love is. In order to form a relationship with someone we must learn to love them and pray to God that you keep him involved with every relationship you make especially marriage because it’s a vow made between a man, a woman and God. There relationship was formed to love one another and they must honor the vow they made by sacrificing for the.
A marriage has a lot of needs to make it healthy but since in my past blogs I kinda sorta put sex down now I want to raise it up. Sex is beautiful, it’s a gift from God. Sex allows husband and wife to express their love for one another and procreate. The church acknowledge sex as a part of marriage and they support the sex relationship in the marriage, thats why they created NFP. It stands for Natural Family Planning it’s a way that couples can learn how to avoid or achieve pregnancy and it allows you to have a mature relationship and be open with your spouse and include God in every decision you make in your marriage.
This article has a lot to say about the side effects that divorce has on kids. Divorce is a sad and horrible thing for people and we should try to help educate what it means to be in love so marriages can last forever the way God intended. In the public schools they are taught thier sex education and it teaches them the opposite of how to love, it teaches how to uses another. If they taught abstinence in the program there would be less sexaul abuse in the world. Lets start to make a difference now
The divorce rate in this country is extremely high and everyone who has parents who are divorced are most likely to get one themselves because they don’t see what it’s like to have a proper family and what is a healthy technique to keep a marriage strong. Statistic say that 40%-50% of Americans are divorced and kids are suffering everyday from their parents separating. This country is not teaching the youth about proper relationships society has a bad habit of being obsessed with themselves and they are not learning that marriage is all about sacrificing for the other. So many divorces are caused by couples just giving up because they don’t want to make the sacrifice anymore and they hurt those around them. We need to teach the youth how to have a healthy strong relationship and we need examples to look up to on what a healthy marriage look like.
I used to be one of those stubborn people/ still am who hated the chastity talks because I would hear them from people who were either virgins or they waited till marriage and I got so annoyed because I thought the were just wanting everyone to know that they stayed chaste and did the right thing, it drove me crazy, I felt that I didn’t take the talk seriously and I thought they were losers. Listening to a talk like that does not make me want to be like them. I always wanted to hear from someone who had experience and could really tell me the truth and honestly scare me by just being honest. If you like me then please watch the video that I posted a few blogs ago and watch Crystalina Evert talk about her past and how hard it was for her and how she regrets all of it. When I first read her book when I was in middle school I really listened to what she had to say and I understood why it’s important to be chaste.
“The right relationship won’t distract you from God. It will bring you closer to Him.”
― Jason Evert
This quote is exactly what God intended on relationships being. Relationships are supposed to be about the guy and the girl bringing out the best in the other and God should be the biggest focus. Every action you make is what will help you or hold you back from getting to heaven. Life is all about how we can get to heaven, everyone has their own way of getting their but we are all supposed to make it. Being married is so you can help each other on the journey, it’s all about having a family and raising kids to make good decisions so they can get to heaven as well.
