The Pope recently used a Latin adage: “Ad impossibilia nemo tenetur.” He was using it in the context of telling Capuchins how to forgive in confession rather than being rigid with penitents. He said that people often could not get out of their sins because they were psychologically conditioned or imprisoned in a situation. But it struck me that that saying “No one is held to doing impossible things” applies so manifestly to the situation of the enhanced male. His focus on things masculine and all the urges that that implies are pre-conscious, sub-conscious and deep in his nature. None of this he can change. In order not to break his nature he must go along with his urges and realize his potential for bringing the joy of masculinity into other people’s lives.
Another thought: The Catechism enforces chastity on gays. But chastity is incumbent on all Christians because chastity simply means keeping your sexual urges and practices within reasonable bounds. In particular this means keeping your appetites in check so that in no way do they do harm to others. People have a tendency to confuse celibacy and chastity. Celibacy means not being married. Members of religious orders take a vow which is called one of chastity that couples the practice of celibacy with the Christian practice of chastity. As I come to reflect on this now, as I integrate my enhanced masculinity or gay nature, I can see that this does not necessarily amount to a vow to forego all sexual activity, which has long been the official interpretation of the state of consecrated celibacy. We still have our sexual nature to fulfil.
