The Voice That Said 'Chaste' (by Kenny Baptiste)

Was in this Party

Beautiful eyes looking at me

Lovely figure the number eight

Mind was uneasy heart was at race

All I was thinking was to have sex in a comfortable place

There was something I remembered, a strange word called 'chaste'

But my mind was not pure, it was not clean

All I could think is lust with this beautiful woman looking at me

All my friend(s) said that's a sexy body that's all me

But a voice said 'chaste!'

Pure at conscience, pure at taste

The voice said, son do not break the commandments I've put in place

You are my child, do the right thing

It should be forever lasting, not a one night swing.


How Divorce Affects the Family (by Group 4)

They got married quite soon

After having a great afternoon

For they did not know 

There was a child to enter the show.


A fractured union

Their love, it seems, was an illusion

For they had a gruesome divorce

And ended up on Murry during the course.


All through this bad incident

It was not a coincidence

That this broken family

Ended quite unhappily. 


16.5

He wants to love

Does he have to lust?

He wants her heart

Also her other parts.


He wants to care

Does his tongue have to be in her ear?

She wants his love

He wants her behind.


The world uses screens for pleasure

He loves it too

She wants a gentleman

He wants her nude.


So he hiding

Yo know what he watching

Stuff with woman

Oh no, another one


Untitled

I will wait until the vow is made

before I let my chastity (virginity) fade

I save myself for the right girl

The one who will wait for me

It may take a while for the time to come

but that is the decision I chose for me


I dream of that day we will be united

We will both enjoy the reward

for which we fighted

This person is a challenge

for whom I'll pay the cost

Praying that she'll live only for me

before she lets herself be lost


I consider this ambition

an unclosed seal

Whoever this promise is made for

Thank you for waiting for me to kneel





Saint Mother Theresa

Did you know that Mother Theresa of Calcutta recently became a saint? 

She successfully taught the same Billings Ovulation Method that we taught you in the slums of India! Here are some cool things she said:


"The fruit of prayer is the deepening of faith

The fruit of faith is love

The fruit of love is service

The fruit of servce is peace"


"A family that prays together, stays together"


"Prayer creates a pure heart"


"The fruit of prayer is a clean heart and a clean heart can see God"


"The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion"


"Contraception and abortion destroys love"


"It is not how much we do, but how much love we put into what we do"

Thanks to all the young men at Holy Cross College for your great participation.

Here is one of their contributions on "Being Chaste" - 


The Voice That Said "Be Chaste"

Was in this Party

Beautiful eyes looking at me

Lovely figure, the number eight

Mind was uneasy, heart was at race

All I was thinking was to have sex in a comfortable place

There was something I remembered, a strange word called "chaste"

But my mind was not pure, it was not clean

All I could think is lust with this beautiful woman looking at me

All my friends said that's a sexy body that's all for me

But a voice said "chaste"

Pure at conscience, pure at taste

The voice said "Son do not break the commandments I've put in place"

"You are my child, do the right thing"

"It should be forever-lasting, not a one-night swing"



And another contribution on the struggle between "Love and Lust" -


He wants to love

Does he have to lust?

He wants her heart

Also her other parts


He wants to care

Does his tongue have to be in her ear?

She wants his love

He wants her behind


The world uses screens for pleasure

He loves it too

She wants a gentleman

He wants her nude


So he hiding

You know what he watching

Stuff with woman

Oh no, another one...


Questions and Answers

Posted by p_mc_carthy@yahoo.com on November 19, 2014 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Q: Why is it a constant issue, the idea of contraception? Isn’t it the woman’s choice to exercise agency over her body?

A: A woman’s body is beautiful the way it was created by God. Women were made to love and for love, as were men. A woman’s fertility is a precious gift given to her by God. The Billings Ovulation Method® was developed to help women observe for changes in her reproductive health. A woman can identify her unique patterns of fertility and infertility using this Method. If a woman knew all four phases of her cycle, she would be able to detect abnormalities faster and see a doctor in time, before any illness of the reproductive system goes really badly for her. Additionally couples can plan when they would like to conceive or postpone having a child. Now if that is not “the woman’s choice to exercise agency over her body” then I don’t know what is. In the Natural Law, the purposes of sex are both for bonding, but at the same time it is also for procreation. Women have the “choice to exercise agency over her body” and that choice really should be to either engage in sexual intercourse and possibly end up pregnant or not. Why? Because sex by its very nature is procreative.

Q: Isn’t Billings natural contraception?

A: To contra-cept is to go against (contra) the creation of new life (conception). Contraception is putting a barrier between the bonding aspect and the baby-making aspect of sex, in an attempt to exclude the baby-making aspect during the act of sexual intercourse. God never intended this for us. So many years of experience with contracepting have left women to feel used by men (men objectifying women), have led to infidelity, divorces, not to mention the host of side-effects some women have to put up with if they insist their fertility is like a disease that needs to be gotten rid of. Instead of all this, with the Billings Ovulation Method®, couples can respect God’s order for sex and fertility. If the couple should not have children, due to some serious reason like health problems (mental or physical) or other serious reasons, or if the couple has just reasons, such as spacing their children by 2 years or more so that they can cope with raising a family well, then the Billings Ovulation Method® of Natural Fertility Regulation can come to the rescue. Couples simply allow the fertile time to pass before resuming sexual intercourse – this is not contracepting. This is using the God-given information about fertile and infertile times (provided by the woman’s body) and using this to go along with God’s plan for that family. We encourage couples who use this Method to ask for God’s guidance in their family planning decisions. God wants us to be generous, yet He wants us to be responsible with the ability to procreate.

Q: What diseases can you get from kissing and touching?

A: The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is spread via skin-to-skin contact. From mid-thigh to mid-waist this virus may exist on the skin and can be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact via hand to genital or any skin-to-skin contact. Think about what happens during Carnival here…I wonder if this is linked to the high rates of HPV in this country? Deep kissing can transmit HIV, Herpes and Hepatitis B, if a person has any of these diseases and has any open cuts or sores in the mouth, they may be spread this way. Kissing and touching may be seen as simple ways to explore the other’s body, but sexual arousal belongs in Marriage. Trying out these things is like starting a little fire, but what you don’t know is that place where kerosene is that would not allow that fire to stop (when it ends up with sex) – try not to arouse each other before Marriage.

Thanks ladies for all your answers to our questions! Here is one of the group contributions:


Why does sex belong in marriage?

Sex belongs in marriage because it solidifies your love with a ring.


What is the difference between Love and Lust?

Love is trusting and accepting someone for who they are. 

Lust is using someone to satisfy your wants.

Love can wait to give.

Lust can't wait to get.


What does Jesus' death on a cross mean to you and what you are worth?

You are worth something and you should not give yourself up for temporary pleasure. Today, we use the term 'love' loosely. God demonstrated His love for us by sending His Son to die for us. How can we compare the way we love to God's love - I asked Jesus how much He loved me "This much" he said and then He opened up His arms and died on the cross.

Thanks very much to the ladies at Corpus Christi College who had many creative pieces to share. Here is one of them on Pornography

A night I was watching porn

with a side of butter popcorn

De scenes made my eyes open big

My mind grew to d size of a pig

I did not know what to think

See this lady in a red suit

I ain't go lie she look real cute

But she was selling her body for one hungry hundred dollar

I would feel so ashame if I was her mother

Diz Rasta man sitting there with a big smile on his face

B'cuz he know exactly what was going to take place

As he pulled the lady closer, he watched her like he did not luv her

The sight of that turned me off, my little night of pleasure was distort

How could diz feel so wrong, my love for porn was lost

Before I used to watch it like ah boss

Something struck me saying watching porn is wrong my sister

All d porn you watch you will never get a Mister

If you continue all your friends will diss yuh

So go tell the world porn is wrong

And when yuh done

Finish eat yuh popcorn

We wish to thank the students of Matelot Community College who gave the following contributions on Chastity:


On how to date-


Be A Good Date

Carry her to watch a show

Do not be taking a dose

Buy the girl a pink, nice rose

And don't be ready to take off her clothes.


Remember she's your date

So you will have to wait

Don't stay out too late

If her father catches you, you will meet your fate

That is why you have to be a good date.


On Divorce-


D- damages the family

I- individuals separate

V- violence can be a cause

O- offense to children

R- relationship broken

C- children are greatly affected

E- end of love.

Thanks to the many contributions from the fellas down at St. Mary's College during our one-day retreat! :) Here is an example of their creativity with the topic of "Chastity":


She wanted to have sex

But Jesus Christ say "Not Yet"

I find it hard because she was so damn bess

She was better than the rest

I wanted to grab her *****

I wanted to eat a food

But Jesus kill de mood

I thought that was the way to live my life

But I go preserve all of this for my future wife

I wanted to do it so bad

I got kinda ****

And it made me mad

At the end of the night it was just us two

So I asked her what ya gonna do?


I hope and pray that just you two knew that saying "Good Night in the Light" was the best thing to do...at your age when you are not thinking of Marriage, why go alone in a dark corner with a girl (or guy) you are really attracted to? It ONLY spells TROUBLE...if you want to keep Chaste, you need to RUN (don't just walk, but RUN) from getting sexually aroused...and that means no dark corners, avoiding being alone together (just you two), going out in groups and enjoying each other's company there....and please GET TO KNOW the person, not just appreciate their looks! This takes time...no rush, especially if you are not planning to get married soon!
