CHURCH TEACHING ON HUMAN SEXUALITY


Sorry, no pornography on these pages (in case anyone was looking!), but you are welcome to stay and read about the Church's teachings on sexuality.

The Church's teaching on human love and sexuality is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented aspects of the Catholic faith. The following articles are dedicated to destroying old myths and stereotypes which continue to dog the Faith.

Some other articles on the Mystical Rose Catholic Page touch on the subject of the sacredness of sex, particularly the "Bride of God" series. Here are the links to those articles: Note: The theme of sacred sexuality is covered mainly in the first and last articles in this series, but please read the entire series in order to get the full context.

Finally, see the article Is the Body Evil? for a related discussion. It does not say much about sexuality, but it addresses the idea that Christianity vilifies the human body, and this certainly relates to the Christian attitude toward sexuality.
