Understanding Chastity in Marriage
Renowned speaker and author Jason Evert says the time has come for a sexual revolution that embraces the beauty and wonder of sex in its untainted, God-given fullness.
We sometimes think of chastity as something we practice only before we’re married, but in Life Giving Love, Understanding Chastity in Marriage, Evert shows how God’s plan for conjugal life is at once fully sexual and fully chaste. According to that plan, sex is an act of total self-giving in which spouses become one flesh and open themselves to receiving God’s gift of life: an exchange of pure and unrestrained love in which the language of the body is freely spoken.
In this 75 minute talk, with gentle humor and careful attention to Church teaching and to the latest science, Evert reveals:
- How Catholic teaching on marriage and sex is rooted in the Bible (even the Protestant Reformers agreed!), which compares the love between spouses to the relationship between Christ and his Church
- The rich and complex symphony of human reproduction, perfected by God to the last detail, in which every aspect of natural sex is ordered to our physical and emotional health
- How the modern contraceptive industry harms women just as much as the crude birth control techniques of ancient times, subjecting them to artificial hormones and devices that upset their bodies’ ecological balance
- Pope Paul VI’s predictions about the societal effects of contraception—and how they all came true
- How Natural Family Planning helps space births safely and effectively, strengthens marriages, teaches virtue, and provides more satisfying sex lives
- Why, even with its difficulties, raising children is a joy that no earthly thing can replace or surpass
