From Crux News:
Human sexuality is not taboo, it is a gift of God, Pope Francis told a group of young people from France.
Sexual relations between a man and woman joined together in marriage is “a gift that the Lord gives us. It has two purposes: for loving each other and generating life. It is passion, it is passionate love. True love is passionate,” he said. The pope was speaking with young people from the Diocese of Grenoble-Vienne in France, Sept. 17. The Vatican press office released a transcript of the audience in which the pope answered several questions on issues such as vocations, helping the poor, evangelization, living one’s faith and sexuality.
