"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price." (I Cor. 6:19-20)
Why read "Bought With a Price"?
Upon release of the letter, Bishop Loverde said, “In my fifty years as a priest, I have seen the evil of pornography spread like a plague throughout our culture. As part of my responsibility to lead all the people in the Diocese of Arlington to the vision of God, I find it necessary now to address the tremendous moral, social, and spiritual dangers of pornography."
In the letter, Bishop Loverde addresses: The nature of the current threat of pornography, The arguments put forward by those who attempt to rationalize pornography, The offering of concrete counsel to all Christians, young people, couples, and priests and the gift of sight and its fulfillment in divine contemplation.
