It is also interesting to note, that the concept of sacrificial love can be seen in great works of fiction as well.
Society believes that having sex makes you a man, while in reality, being faithful to Christ’s teachings, including the virtue of chastity, makes you a Man. By seeing celibacy as a gift, not just a dictate by the Church, it frees a man and allows him to remain faithful to his vows, and beget many spiritual children.
Jesus was faithful to his vows which were the New Covenant shed in His blood to redeem us. Even when Jesus’ emotions weren’t looking forward to the cross, and sweat blood in agony, Christ was still faithful to His commitment to us. We need to be like Jesus and remain faithful to our promises…
Fasting and abstinence are necessary parts of the spiritual form of Eros. Doing acts of penance is part of the sacrificial offerings one can offer to Christ for one’s beloved.
In human relationships, lovers never want to be divided from each other because those relationships are never able to flourish; creating a divorce.
All women are beautiful, regardless of whatever societal beauty norms are. Even she who is disabled, for example, is beautiful due to the fact that in her nature she is beautiful because God made her to be so.
I am in no way saying that a woman should be completely cloaking her feminine beauty, but at the same time she should not be dressing in clothing that barely covers her genitals. Feminine beauty needs to remain chaste, but also show a bit of a mystery.
