5 Ways to Purity
St. Josemaria Escriva:
St. Josemaria Escriva is a modern day Saint. He was a Spanish Priest, the founder of Opus Dei (Latin: Work of God). St. Josemaria lived: Jan. 9, 1902 - June 26, 1975. He told young men, "Esto Vir" (Latin for "Be the Man" ~ be the St. Joseph in your family, home, Church, community... Pp. John Paul II agreed w/ this when he said, "God has given a duty to every man to protect the dignity of every woman..."
Here are 5 steps to build and strengthen purity
in yourself (whether you are a man, woman or child):
1. Promise God
you will be pure and renew this promise daily.
Have a vibrant relationship w/ Jesus. Cultivate this thru the Eucharist, Confession, Adoration, prayers, Scripture, Ask God to keep you pure & Chaste...
don't flirt w/ temptation, don't go down the path of porn, promiscuity, "dirty" talk ~ you won't like where it leads...
Have a family member, friend, member of the Church Community that you can talk to, who will hold you accountable...
St. Jerome said: "dress the way you talk otherwise you will talk the dress."
Protect your heart, protect your family, protect the dignity (& reputation) of every woman! For you men out the "Esto Vir" (Be the Man)...
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
