St. Paul’s Teaching on the Sanctity and Respect of the Human Body
1. St. Paul writes in the First Letter to the Thessalonians: “…this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from unchastity, that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour , not in the passion of lust like heathens who do not know God” (1 Th 4:3-5). After some verses, he continues: “God has not called us for uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you” (ibid. 4:7-8). We referred to these sentences of the Apostle during our last meeting. We take them up again today because they are especially important for the subject of our meditations.
