Today we are lucky to have journalist and author of the new book, , Arleen Spenceley on the podcast with us. Arleen has written a clear, yet thoughtful book, Chastity Is for Lovers: Single, Happy, and (Still) a Virgin on what chastity means and how to live chastely as a single person.
We have a great discussion talking about the important differences between chastity and abstinence and why the two terms are not interchangeable, why chastity is for everyone not just single people, and what we can do to be thoughtful and considerate of our friends who happen to be single.
Arleen’s book, Chastity Is for Lovers: Single, Happy, and (Still) a Virgin,
is a great read for anyone, but if you’ve got single Catholic friends they’ll love hearing such an articulate presentation of what it really means to live chastely.
(And a quick apology for the random crackling noise throughout this episode – it’s a mystery and I couldn’t figure out how to edit it out, but I promise to never let it happen again! – Christy)
