Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 1. What is the meaning of the word "concupiscence?"

A. 1. As a result of original sin, according to Catholic teachinag, the human nature has not been totally corrupted (as opposed to the teaching of Luther and Calvin); rather, human nature has only been weakened and wounded, subject to ignorance, suffering, the domination of death, and the inclination to sin and evil (Catechism of the Catholic Church # 405 & 418). This inclination toward sin and evil is called "concupiscence." The Sacrament of Baptism, according to Catholic teachings, erases original sin and turns a man back towards God. The inclination toward sin and evil persists, however, and he must continue to struggle against concupiscence (Catechism of the Catholic Church # 2520).
