‘Sex is a gift from God’ Pope speaks frankly to young worshippers


The Pope was speaking to a group of young worshippers from France and answered questions on a range of issues including as inequality, evangelisation, faith and sexuality.

“Sex is a gift the Lord gives us. It has two purposes: for loving each other and generating life.

“It is passion, it is passionate love. True love is passionate.

“Sexuality, sex, is a gift of God. Not taboo.»

Sex is a gift the Lord gives us

Pope Francis

He continued: “Love between a man and a woman, when it is passionate, it leads you to give your life forever. Forever. And to give it with your body and soul.

“God made in his image and likeness both male and female together and when they join in marriage they become one flesh.

“This is the grandeur of sexuality. And one must talk about sexuality like this and one must live sexuality like this, in this dimension of love between a man and a woman for life.”

He acknowledged some people chose to use their sexuality “outside this very beautiful road” and said these were sins “like lies, anger, gluttony”.

And he criticised pornography as being part of an “industry of lies,” an industry “of sexuality detached from love”.

He told the youngsters: “It is interesting how sexuality is the most beautiful point of creation, in the sense that men and women were created in the image and likeness of God, and sexuality is the most affected by mundanity, by the spirit of evil».
