Another "sutra" from Cencini: virginity, "annuncio della verità del corpo umano." Proclamation of the truth of the human body. The body is made for God. It cannot rest until it rests in God. No creature can satisfy our craving for love. Only God can. So, strangely, there is a space for virginity in every heart. And consecrated people are the ones who choose, who are chosen, to live virginity to witness to this truth.
The scandals of sexual abuse of minors, said Cencini, need to be properly read. They are not "something that happened to some unfortunate few," not even "terrible things that were done by a few." They are indications of the mediocrity of the majority. They are indications of the way we have lived our virginity.
