Is There Sex in Heaven?

The Kiss by Rodin   (Permission by Mark Harden; http://www.artchive.com)We cannot know what X-in-Heaven is unless we know what X is. We cannot know what sex in Heaven is unless we know what sex is. We cannot know what in Heaven's name sex is unless we know what on earth sex is.

But don't we know? Haven't we been thinking about almost nothing else for years and years? What else dominates our fantasies, waking and sleeping, twenty-four nose-to-the-grindstone hours a day? What else fills our TV shows, novels, plays, gossip columns, self-help books, and psychologies but sex?

No, we do not think too much about sex; we think hardly at all about sex. Dreaming, fantasizing, feeling, experimenting—yes. But honest, look-it-in-the-face thinking?—hardly ever. There is no subject in the world about which there is more heat and less light.

Want More Light?. . .

Read the entire fascinating and thought provoking article by Peter Kreeft and if you're like me, you're not here anymore. ; )

At the moment I checked the link didn't work nor did any part of Kreeft's site.

Well that's food for thought!

Hi O and Jackie...

Thanks for popping in to the ol' blog. I'll check things out, OB and see what's up with the link. I think the article came to me from Catholic Culture, in the weekly I get from there. Maybe there's an archive of it there.(?)
