Original Solitude

On the glory, grace and mystery of consecrated virginity lived in the world

Living chastely in a hell of unchastity

A priest emailed this to me when a mutual friend left his wife and young children to live with another woman:

“It is all about unchaste insanity. Unchaste behaviour is a form of insanity. It is powerful and at the basis of much murder, abortion etc. I thought of the importance of your call as a witness to chaste virginity and how powerful that vocation is; a reminder of the counter-cultural witness you have and, in a sense, how in the real world you are at the very opposite of much evil and tremendous unchaste behaviour around us. So your vocation is even more special and needed. What is this incident teaching you? And me? That living chaste life is in a hell of unchastity. This should make us go on our knees. Lord, give me a heart on fire with You. Thank you for your witness and how we need you even more. On your knees!!”
