Description

The traditional minds raise eyebrows—how come celibacy and sex get equal treatment, and that too as an attempt to integrate both?
This book has an answer for them, a scholarly and convinc¬ing answer.
Sexuality, a powerful dynamism that thrusts its presence in human life as a need for intimacy and generativity, contains, when integrated, a great potential for discovering the mys¬tery of another person.

It is neither a plea for an endless titillation of the senses nor for licensing of warm carnal feelings. Rather it represents a real concern for the psychosexual growth of celibates as sexu¬ality touches every level of their existence as human beings.
Sexual integration is a challenge thrown to the celibate if he/she is really to live the virtue of chastity, that is, to radi¬ate the same warmth and affection characteristic of Jesus’ relating to men and women.
