The pleasures of sexual intercourse with a loved one or a good meal are “divine,” says Pope Francis. AFP writes about this, referring to the book TerraFutura with the statements of the pontiff.
“The pleasure comes directly from God,” he noted, adding that it is neither Catholic nor Christian, but simply “divine.”
The Pontiff stressed that the church has always condemned “inhuman, rude and vulgar pleasure”, but has always accepted the simple, human and moral. According to him, “an exaggerated morality” that denies feelings is “a misreading of the Christian message.” He believes that the pleasure of eating is necessary for a person to remain healthy, and sexual pleasure contributes to the fact that love becomes more beautiful and serves as a guarantee of continuation of the species.
