Day 10: Mother Most Chaste, Pray for Us!


It’s not that the Church is hung up on sex, or that the Church is prudish. It’s simply that the Church promotes and defends human dignity, and recognizes that the human race is the pinnacle of God’s visible Creation. Human beings have been created for eternity, to give glory to God.

That’s why the Church guards and elevates human sexuality, and protects it in the sacred bond of matrimony. Children have a right to know their mother and father. Children have a right to be born and raised in a family. And the human race is a blessing to planet Earth. That’s why the virtue of chastity is necessary. It safeguards sex and places it within the stability of marriage. Sex is always safe, when used as God has intended. Between a man and a woman, open to life, within a marriage. In that context it is holy.

Mother Most Chaste, pray for the Church and our Nation!

On Thursdays we pray the Luminous Mysteries.
