Reflections from the Saints

When you perceive that God is chastening you, fly not to his enemies, but to his friends, the martyrs, the saints, and those who were pleasing to him, and who have great power in God.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2380

Adultery refers to marital infidelity. When two partners, of whom at least one is married to another party, have sexual relations – even transient ones – they commit adultery. Christ condemns even adultery of mere desire. The sixth commandment and the New Testament forbid adultery absolutely. The prophets denounce the gravity of adultery; they see it as an image of the sin of idolatry.
