Concupiscence is the
inclination to sin resulting from
original sin. As stated in the Catechism of the Council of Trent...
"We may also add
that, like water which cools the body,
Baptism in a great measure extinguishes the fire of concupiscence."
"...concupiscence...[is] the fuel of sin... But [well-regulated] concupiscence
does not constitute sin... For concupiscence which is the effect of sin is
nothing more than an appetite of the soul in itself repugnant to reason."
Note that (worthy)
reception of the
Holy Eucharist "weakens our passions, and in particular it allays in us the
fires of concupiscence" (Catechism of Pope St. Pius X)
