Pope to Youth: Do not reduce love to something banal, or to its sexual aspect alone

2015-02-17

It's a message where Pope Francis calls on the youth to rediscover the beauty of  love.  It's part of a message to prepare for World Youth Day, which will be celebrated next year in Krakow. Love, he says, is about commitment and about responsibility. 

"I also urge you to rebel against the widespread tendency to reduce love to something banal, reducing it to its sexual aspect alone, deprived of its essential characteristics of beauty, communion, fidelity and responsibility.”

He said that using love, just for pleasure creates a barrier that blocks 'true love.' 

It's one of the elements, he added of the culture that focuses on what's easy and temporary, instead of what's true and long term. 

"If you allow yourselves to discover the rich teachings of the Church on love, you will discover that Christianity does not consist of a series of prohibitions which stifle our desire for happiness, but rather a project for life capable of captivating our hearts.”

In the message, he also highlights that youth is a period where the desire to find true love is awakened. He called on the youth to avoid anything that may end up contaminating their hearts.
