Patristic Quote of the Day

Yet not even honorable procreation can exist without lust. In this way, in chaste spouses there is both the voluntary, in the procreation of offspring, and the necessary, in lust. Honesty arises from unseemliness when chaste union accepts, but does not love, lust.—St. Augustine, Against Julian 5.9.37
