Porn, Love and Longing to be Kissed.

“In the heart of every woman lies an endless quest for love. We desire to be cherished, to be treasured, to be beautiful, to experience true love in all of its beauty.”

Surprisingly this quote was taken off of a great website designed by a Catholic, to help people who have been affected by pornography.  A website designed for both the fallen and the hurting, for single people and for couples,  for people of all ages.  Much of the site makes great sense of our fears and longings and desires as relational human beings, and I for one wish this education reached a broader audience, especially young people before they even begin on their relational quest.

The above quote is of great interest to me, because I believe that one of the fundamental problems facing society and especially young women today, is that because of this quest to be cherished and treasured, to feel beautiful, and to be loved,  because of seeking this ‘perfect’ fulfilment and validation of love from another,  young women prematurely seal themselves into sexual relationships and even marriage, before they have fully come to realise themselves, before they have experienced different loving plutonic relationships, and before they know what it really feels like to truly fall in God with somebody.  They prematurely choose a love that has a powerful but superficial veneer which eventually wears itself out, and in doing so they forsake the blessing of  True Authentic Love, a Love which is only chosen and bestowed by the Holy Spirit.

I also believe that this is the predictable fate for many who are not privileged enough to have a Christian/Catholic education. As a result of a secular education and lifestyle many young people today have a complete lack of spiritual maturity, a lack of self realisation, a lack of relationship with Christ and the intimate experience of His unconditional Love, and ultimately a lack of faith and trust in God’s will.

In the heart of My soul lies an endless quest to be with my Beloved.  I already feel cherished, treasured, and beautiful in Christ, but I desire to share that treasure, that beauty, and that True Authentic Love, in All of its beauty, in intimate union with my Beloved, and Christ.  A triune Love.  A Love and Truth chosen and bestowed only by God.

And as part of that Truth, I long to be kissed.
