`For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ This is a great mystery, and I am applying it to Christ and the church.
+ Ephesians 5:31-32
[T]here’s an important element of truth in our society’s idolatrous obsession with sex. Behind every false god we discover our desire for the true God gone awry. The sexual confusion so prevalent in our world and in our own hearts is simply the human desire for heaven gone berserk. Untwist the distortions and we discover the astounding glory of sex in the divine plan. “For this reason … the two become one flesh.” For what reason? To reveal, proclaim, and anticipate the eternal union of Christ and the Church.
