173 – Chastity, Integrity and the Desert Fathers – Bishop Erik Varden

Feb 15, 2024

Erik Varden, bishop of Trondheim, Norway as
well as Trappist monk, joins the podcast to discuss his new book
Chastity: Reconciliation of the Senses.

Topics discussed include:

Recovering the true meaning of the word
“chastity”
Continence and chastity are not the same
thing
What the Desert Fathers can teach us about
chastity
Why we need to meditate on the original
vocation of man before the Fall rather than limiting our options to
what our sinful nature is capable of
Why having a sense of dignity in one’s
masculinity or femininity helps us to be chaste
The importance of friendship between men and
women
The redirection of eros
