Fellowship of Augustine

A Place for Catholics and Christians Struggling with Homosexuality

Do We Truly Desire to Be Healed?

At Mass this afternoon the priest told us that Jesus desires that we be healed of all our afflictions. But we can’t expect to be healed if we refuse to take the medicine.

I desire a pure heart so that I may see God. I desire chastity. I desire holiness. But I am not willing to take the medicine. I am not willing to cut pornography out of my life. I am not willing to delete profiles on “dating” sites that serve as little more than a place to arrange hook-ups.

I can’t be holy if I refuse to be holy!

I have to stop pretending to want Jesus and then actually want him!
