EP25 - Virtue Challenge - Chastity w/ Stephen J. Caruso and Jerry Lenaburg

Stephen J. CarusoOliver Pappas and myself recently launched, hosted and completed a 13 Day Virtue Challenge hosted on Instagram Live.  Daily conversations exploring Ben Franklin’s 13 human virtues as a framework to elevate our clarity, up our performance and to inspire us to strive for excellence in life and in Faith.  We are resharing all episodes on the Alto podcast!

In this conversation, Stephen hosts Jerry Lenaburg to explore and unpack the virtue of Chastity, "Rarely use venery but for health or offspring; never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation." 


Jerry is a Catholic husband and father who lives in Northern Virginia and shares the Faith with youths in the Diocese of Arlington along with his wife Mary Lenaburg. Jerry is a Navy Veteran, Naval Academy Graduate and has a background in Management Consulting. Jerry is a history buff and shares his passion for American history through his Youtube channel, blog and Instagram account @grouchy_historian.

Key talking points:
  • What the heck is “venery?”
  • How do Catholics view the virtue of chastity?
  • Why chastity is essential to a happy marriage.
  • What impact does porn have on us as men.
