A tidbit from The Theology of the Body

In the Sermon on the Mount, Christ gave his own interpretation of the cmmandment, "You shall not commit adultery." This interpretation constitutes a new ethos. With the same lapidary words [If you look at a woman with lust, you have made her an adulteress in your heart] he assigned as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman. (p. 346)
