  • Despite the outcome of a world wounded by sexual exploitation and addiction, there is room for hope through the reasonableness and goodness of Catholic sexual morality. Beginning with a thorough survey of the Churchs historic attitude toward human sexuality, author Robert Fastiggi proceeds to discuss five contemporary hot buttons of sexuality: pornography, masturbation, homosexuality, fornication and cohabitation, and marital chastity. He goes on to cover sexual sins in a realistic and compassionate manner - taking note of both human weakness and the power of Gods grace.

    In a practical and pastoral manner, Fastiggi shines the comprehensive yet clear light of Church teaching on this complex, confusing, and often culturally ambiguous topic. Includes an introduction by renowned Catholic bioethics scholar and professor Janet E smith and a useful appendix that summarizes key Church documents on sexual morality.

    Fastiggi begins his work with a recounting of St. Augustines struggle with sexual sin.... Given the fact that most Catholics now have sex before marriage and engage in many other sexual sins such as the use of pornography and contraception, Fastiggi is wise to begin with.h this story of a reformed sinner who became one of the greatest saints of the Church Readers of this book may well find themselves undergoing a similar conversion process - to the truth itself, to the necessity of asking for grace, and to the joy of being a member of the Catholic Church.
