Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D. addresses what sexual integrity and sexual integration look like in the context of a commitment to chaste celibacy.
Building on the concept of sexual identity articulated in Sexual Identity: A Multi-Factored Model, Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D. addresses what sexual integrity and sexual integration look like in the context of a commitment to chaste celibacy.
