Relationships and Sexuality - How Does God Fit In?

On June 25, 2014 at Jack Astor’s Bar & Grille in Scarborough, Dr. Josephine Lombardi spoke eloquently to about 90 young adults about sexuality and relationships and how God fits into the equation. She said that to be in good relationships with others, we need to strive to become our best selves which includes having a relationship with God who loves us and created us. 

Dr. Lombardi shared with us many different ways in our lives that lead to authentic freedom which is truly knowing God. This is what Christ wants for us all. God wants us to be perfect in our wholeness as we are all created in His image and likeness. He wants us to be the best version of ourselves.

It was explained by Dr. Lombardi that we are all called to holiness with Jesus, and leading a life that will transform us to a glorified body when it's time to meet the Lord. Making mistakes is part of the growing pains, but through the blessings and grace of reconciliation, we can repent and go back to Christ.

Whether our vocation is to be called to marriage, the priesthood, the single life, or a religious life, we can all walk in the path of His ultimate plan.
