Lenten Series – Your Whole Heart Pt 6: Lust

March 20, 2024

This week's focus is Lust, the "disordered desire for or inordinate enjoyment of sexual pleasure"

The journey continues as John and Victor dive deeper into the 7 Deadly Sins. This week’s focus is Lust, the “disordered desire for or inordinate enjoyment of sexual pleasure” (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC], paragraph 2351). According to Archbishop Fulton Sheen, the key word is inordinate. God Himself associated pleasure with the flesh. Pleasure becomes sinful when we use it as a means instead of an end. Lust distorts the gift of sexuality and causes us to gaze only upon ourselves and our desires. What is the remedy? “The only real escape from the demands of the flesh is to find something more than the flesh to love” (Archbishop Fulton Sheen).

Scripture passages to pray with:
-Matthew 5:28
-1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
-Romans 8:6
-Psalm 51:10-12

In this episode:
-Lust is selfish or perverted love
-Acknowledging the gift of our sexuality
-Chastity,”the successful integration of sexuality within the person” (CCC 2337), is the virtue that combats lust
-There is hope! Call on Jesus and His Mother, turn your gaze from yourself to the ones you love, & view temptation as an opportunity to choose the good
