Hello friends, I hope everyone’s New Year is going well.
I’ve been reading a lot about chastity lately, and I keep hearing the term “gift of sexuality”. Indeed, my priest has described sexuality as a gift of god.
However, suppose a person is called to celibacy, whether as a priest, religious or single person. Alternately, suppose a person struggles with SSA. In these cases, I have trouble seeing sexuality as a gift. Rather, I would see it as more of a cross.
Can anyone explain to me how, in these situations, a person could consider his sexuality to be a “gift”?
Thank you for the help.
