When Fun is Not Fun At All

July 6 Sunday Reflection

“For if you live according to the flesh, you will die.”
–Romans 8:13


Readings:
  • Zechariah 9:9-10
  • Psalm 145:1-2,8-9,10-11,13-14
  • Romans 8:9,11-13
  • Matthew 11:25-30

Year after year, talking to the OB-Gyne for my annual pap smear test is such an ordeal. Here’s how it normally goes:

OB-Gyne: Age?
My answer: Thirty-six.
OB-Gyne: Married?
My answer: Single.
OB-Gyne: Sexually active?
My answer: No.

Then I’d hear this sarcastic comment again. “What have been doing with your life? You’re missing all the fun!”

Promiscuity has become an acceptable norm in our society. How sad that what is meant to be the expression of deep love between a man and woman joined forever in marriage can be trivialized as merely a way of enjoyment. What could have been a gift of oneself to another has led to the cravings of the flesh. No wonder, serious illnesses related to sexual activities are becoming more prevalent.

However we define promiscuity, it is one of the most destructive sins. It will always take us further than we intended to play, keep us longer than we intended to stay and cost us more than we’re willing to play. –Jane Gonzales

Reflection:
Remember, what we feed ourselves may control us.

Prayer:
Father, forgive us for feeding the cravings of our sinful flesh. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

St Dominica , martyr in Campania Italy, pray for us.
