Sex And Sacrifice

Quick observation: On Disc 3 of Christopher West's 10-CD lecture series Naked Without Shame, discussing the Catholic Theology of the Body, a particular line caught my attention.

To my memory, it went thus: "Sexual sin attempts to separate true love from sacrifice."

I really dug this line, so I decided to post it here for your reflection. I certainly understand that child rearing involves sacrifice. And I've seen enough to know that pregnancy requires much sacrifice of my wife. God's love for us required his own sacrifice of Himself. If it holds true, it would make for some nice evidence against contraceptive barrier methods.
