    Bought with a Price Pastoral Letter

    "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."
