For the next several episodes we will be exploring God’s plan for marriage and family and the variety of ways Satan’s lies attack that plan. Today we start with sex outside of marriage.
Now, it is important that we don’t just teach the “rule”. Instead we need to share with our children what is good and beautiful. God’s plan for sex is so good! The reason why we know that sex outside of marriage is harmful is because we know what sex is supposed to look like! And sex only makes sense and is what it was created to be within a committed and sacramental marriage.
We discuss several topics here including finding healing from past sexual relationship, setting expectations with children and teaching from what is beautiful.
Our exploration of sex outside of marriage comes directly out of our new book, CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING FOR YOUTH. Catholic Social Teaching for Youth is not on sale yet, but will be soon. Look for the book to be on sale in May!
In the meantime, please use this Catholic Social Teaching Cheat Sheet. It outlines what the Church teaches on each topic and offers you a brief description of the beauty we should reinforce as we teach.
