Glorify God in mind and body

Dear Parishioners,

Today’s second reading (1 Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20) stands out as a rebuke to the pleasure seekers of today who revel in excessive eating, drinking, and immoral sex. St. Paul tells us that we dishonor God when we act in this way. When we use our appetites for food, drink, sex, and recreation in moderation, we glorify God in our bodies as well as our minds.
