Pleasures Of Sex, Good Food Are From God – Pope Francis

Pope Francis has said the pleasure derived from sexual intercourse and good food are divine and should be enjoyed.

He made the assertion in a new book by Italian writer Carlo Petrini which was published on Wednesday.

The Pontiff noted that the pleasures are from God but have unjustly fallen victim to “overzealousness”.

“Pleasure arrives directly from God, it is neither Catholic, nor Christian, nor anything else, it is simply divine”.

“The Church has condemned inhuman, brutish, vulgar pleasure, but has on the other hand always accepted human, simple, moral pleasure,” he added.

The religious leader further stressed that there is no place for an “overzealous morality” that denies oneself of pleasure, something the Church had been guilty of encouraging in the past, according to him.

He insisted that this was “a wrong interpretation of the Christian message”.

“The pleasure of eating is there to keep you healthy by eating, just like sexual pleasure is there to make love more beautiful and guarantee the perpetuation of the species.

“The pleasure of eating and sexual pleasure comes from God,” he added.
