Live Healthy Relationships

To live a healthy and holy relationship, we need to live the virtue of chastity. The chaste person maintains the integrity of the powers of life and live placed in him.

Chastity means the successful integration of sexuality within the person and thus the inner unity of the person in body and spirit. Chastity allows us to control our passions, to make choices that are truly free, and to seek what is good for ourselves and for others.

The virtue of chastity blossoms in friendship by showing us how to follow Christ and how to imitate him who has given himself totally to us and who allows us to share in his divine life.

Chastity is the freedom to follow God's call and a promise of immortality. (adapted CCC 2337-2347)
