Almost every day, I listen to Catholic radio for about an hour, and I frequently hear men and women profess deep love for and faithful adherence to the Catholic faith, and then proceed to tell the host of the program that they are living in a romantic relationship with some man or some woman that is not their spouse.
NEWS FLASH: The official Catholic teaching is that fornication is a grave mortal sin. It was a grave mortal sin 2,000 years ago, and it is no less so today. If you are having sex outside the bounds of a sacramental marriage that is recognized by the church, you are committing grave mortal sin.
SECONDARY NEWS FLASH: Grave mortal sin for which there is no repentance and no confession, is an express ticket to hell.
THIRD NEWS FLASH: If you are having sex outside of a sacramental marriage that is recognized by the church, you are not a faithful Catholic.
