The secular world often disregards the sanctity of sex and chastity. In contrast, Catholics maintain that sex is a gift God intended solely for the union between husband and wife in marriage and for the conception of children. But why is this so important?

When I wrote my book, Chastity is For Lovers, I wrote it for both women and men.
However, its feminine cover (not my idea!) means it eludes a lot of dudes. But I want the world to know that chastity isn’t just for ladies.So when my friend and fellow author Everett Fritz wrote a chastity book called Freedom: Battle Strategies for Conquering Temptation, I rejoiced.

Quotes about chastity and sex
“More souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
Our Lady of Fatima
“In temptations against chastity, the spiritual masters advise us, not so much to contend with the bad thought, as to turn the mind to some spiritual, or, at least, indifferent object. It is useful to combat other bad thoughts face to face, but not thoughts of impurity.”
Saint Alphonsus Liguori
Those whose hearts are pure are the temples of the Holy Spirit.”
“Holy Purity, the queen of virtues, the angelic virtue, is a jewel so precious that those who possess it become like the angels of God in heaven, even though clothed in mortal flesh.”
Saint John Bosco
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
“There is no remedy so powerful against the heat of concupiscence as the remembrance of our Savior’s Passion. In all my difficulties I never found anything so efficacious as the wounds of Christ: In them I sleep secure; from them I derive new life.”
