In the next few weeks, Father Kevin and I will work to answer your questions to the best of our ability, beginning with one question at a time! Below is the answer to our first question.
IS masturbation A SIN?
'The deliberate use of the sexual faculty, for whatever reason, outside of marriage is essentially contrary to it's purpose.' For here sexual pleasure is sought outside of the 'sexual relationship which is demanded by moral order and in which the total meaning of mutual self-giving and human procreation in the context of true love is achieved.' Catechism of the Catholic Church 2525
