There is no greater turpitude than that a husband love his wife as an adultress.
Let a man govern his voluptuous impulses, and not rush headlong into intercourse. There is nothing blacker than to love a wife as if she were an adulteress. Men who say they have contracted marriage and are bringing up children, for the good of their country and of the race, should at least imitate the brutes, and not destroy their offspring in the womb; nor should they appear in the character of lovers, but of husbands. Augustine AD — was sexually active before his conversion and later decided that sex within marriage was not sinful, though the lust and passion associated with it was sinful.
Because of this, he often commended married couples for not engaging in sex and referred to it as a form of animalistic lust.

Saint Francis made women out of snow and then caressed them in order to quiet the lust that burned in him. There is a legend involving St.
Francis and snow figures but the story is different in very important ways. An important source of St.
Francis legends is the work of Bonaventure who quoted from Celano. The legends of St. Francis as recorded by Celano are here. The story involving snow figures is as follows:. How the devil, calling to Francis, tempted him with lust, and how the saint overcame the temptation At the hermitage of the brothers at Sartiano, he who is always envious of the children of God, presumed to do the following against the saint.
What then? The enemy did not stop short of inflicting upon him another struggle. For seeing that he could not thus conceal his snare, he prepared another snare, namely, the enticement of the flesh. But in vain, for he who had seen through the craftiness of the spirit could not be tricked by the flesh.
The devil therefore tempted him with a most severe temptation of lust. The tunic belongs to the order; stealing is not allowed. If you want to go your way, But when he saw that the temptation did not leave him in spite of the scourging, even though all his members were marked with welts, he opened his cell and went out into the garden and cast himself naked into a deep pile of snow.
Then gathering handfuls of snow, he made from it seven lumps like balls.
Though unlike the neo-con Bush administration, he notes, "Nazis are not explicitly opposed to measures like statutory emission controls which are required to preserve the air, the water, and natural life from pollution and destruction.

But if caring for them in so many ways troubles you, be solicitous for serving God alone. A certain spiritual brother, who was praying at the time, saw the whole thing by the light of the moon. But when the saint found out later that this brother had seen him that night, he was greatly distressed and commanded him to tell the thing to no one as long as he lived in this world. While I am not an expert on St. Francis, my research into this story leads me to believe that both Drury and Driscoll are wrong about the story and it is a story with no way to know if it is true.

Thomas Aquinas AD — taught that sex was only permissible for purposes of procreation. Aquinas saw sexual intercourse as duty alone. Anything beyond this was immoral.
