Text: “From this day forward, I promise to seek God’s help to grow in purity of heart, mind, and body, so that I can be free to love. Regardless of the past, I now choose to save the gift of my sexuality for my future spouse or to make a gift of myself in the vocation to which God calls me.”
In 1830, the Virgin Mary promised to St. Catherine Labouré that those who wear the Miraculous Medal “will receive great graces.” This sacramental is also great reminder to practice the virtue of purity.
“Say the holy rosary. Blessed be that monotony of Hail Marys that purifies the monotony of your sins. . . . If you say the holy rosary every day with a spirit of faith and love, our Lady will make sure she leads you very far along her Son’s path.” – Saint Josemaría Escrivá
