Purity. By: C.C.

"To be pure, to remain pure, can only come at a price, the price of knowing God and loving him enough to do his will. He will always give us the strength we need to keep purity as something as beautiful for him."--Blessed Mother Teresa

I spent some time in prayer reflecting upon purity. This is a virtue that I take quite seriously and one that I feel is very important to be shared. I look around my classroom and witness so many young girls in a battle against the world, fitting in, and their own dignity. I try to sympathize with them, acknowledging the numerous temptations, mixed media messages, and impurities that they are constantly bombarded with. It is through witnessing this that I am able recognize my own responsibility as a female role model. I feel such a sense of urgency to be an example of purity for these young women. Lord, May young women everywhere come to understand Your design for their lives. Help them to live a life of purity amidst the daily dealings within a world that is plagued with sin. Guide young men to maintain their own purity, and also respect that of women. May the virtue of chastity be one that is embraced and practiced by all of Your children. Help us Lord to be examples of purity in our speech, dress, and actions. May our lives truly serve as testimony to the youth so that they may be faithful in their own purity. Lead us Lord each day to live a life that is pure and pleasing to You. Amen (C.C.)
Purity (by: C.C.)
Young girls today in agony
Struggling to keep their purity
Should we blame the world or do we look within
Falling victim to the vanity, falsity, and sin.
Staring in the mirror dreaming up a different weight
Thinking they need to give “it” up;
It’s time to educate.
But somewhere in the world tonight prayerful on her knees
Is someone who yearns to be like Blessed Mother Mary.
Purity and chastity and how about some modesty?
Our girls need leaders in their faith..
It’s time now to take that stance
So that our future can have a chance.
We must cling to our faith
We must walk with our truth
Let our lives serve as testimony
So we can better guide our youth.

Holy Mother: Pray for us
