Come and understand why the Catholic Church considers masturbation, homosexual activity, fornication (pre marital sex) and adultery (extra marital sex), and contraception as mortal sins. Why a non consummated marriage can be dissolved, and why civilly remarried divorced Catholics cannot receive Holy Communion. These and other questions on sexuality will be answered in this talk, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Theology of the Body and the Natural Law.
