Dating for singles with cancer
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ, the second Divine Person of the Triune God, entered time becoming Incarnate and then freely offered Himself on the cross out of love.By His death, the redemption of humanity was complete.But as a physician, I want to let you know there is something infinitely worse than cancer or any other physical ailment one may have. Unfortunately, many today either are in denial of this or are unaware of it, but this is reality. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 1849-1850) states: Sin is an offense against reason, truth and right conscience; it is failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods.Grave sin causes death to the soul and unaddressed, one will endure eternal consequences. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity.
As we fight against this cancer of sin, each day we are obligated to be striving for holiness in our lives (Matthew ; Hebrews ).We all recognize that if we have cancer, making this diagnosis is of the utmost urgency.But today sin is treated as a minor ailment with no need for an intervention.Too often people minimize or ignore the sin within themselves, and we are far too hesitant to help others see the reality of sin in their own lives.We become anxious of how we will be perceived or we fall prey to the propaganda that discussing sin is imposing our views on others.
