What does the Catholic Church teach on love and sex?

In this classic guide, Fr Edwards sets out a clear exposition of what love means in marriage, in chastity and in virginity.

This booklet opens up clear thinking about the issues which, despite huge secular pressures to do so, just won’t go away: contraception, premarital sex and homosexuality.

It is an honest, engaging and straightforward Catholic blueprint for everyone – single, celibate or married – to aid them in seeing love for what it truly is: a gift, both human and divine, which is utterly beyond compare.

Formerly published as ‘Ways of Loving’.

  • An accessible explanation of the beauty and joy in Christian marriage.
  • Includes a powerful defence of the celibate vocation.
  • Fr Edwards has written other successful titles on forgiveness and many other aspects of Christian life.

This is a fabulous little booklet and has helped my husband and me immensely as we were preparing for marriage and now that we are married. It has helped us understand what it really means to love and how to do it well. Highly recommend!
