Sex Drive'n to Graceland

"The sexual drive is so powerful that nothing but selfless generosity, inspired by divine grace, can curb its imperious drive to use others for one's own gratification. Unchastity is inspired by an egoism that borders on self-idolatry"

Our heroine over at the Dawn Patrol has listed some wonderful quotes by
Father John A. Hardon. The above spoke to me on various levels, in that the drive of which he speaks is a powerful one (which helps to lessen un-necessary shame for natural desire), but also shows that in this, if we respond to Christ's love, is an opportunity to experience, and extend, grace.
