Can you tell me what chastity is please?

oops I do know what it means and tried to delete it. I am reading a paper that wasn’t very clear and confused me because I thought it meant what it does mean and the paper glossed over that bit more. :blush: :blush: :blush:

Basically refraining from sexual activities.

Not including married couples having sex.

“It’s not about following a list of rules so that you’ll avoid hell. It’s about wanting Heaven for the person you love.” Says Jason Evert.

Check out the chastity tab up top. God bless :slight_smile:

Official Prayer to St. Maria Goretti

Oh Saint Maria Goretti who, strengthened by God’s grace, did not hesitate even at the age of twelve to shed your blood and sacrifice life itself to defend your virginal purity, look graciously on the unhappy human race which has strayed far from the path of eternal salvation. Teach us all, and especially youth, with what courage and promptitude we should flee for the love of Jesus anything that could offend Him or stain our souls with sin. Obtain for us from our Lord victory in temptation, comfort in the sorrows of life, and the grace which we earnestly beg of thee (here insert intention), and may we one day enjoy with thee the imperishable glory of Heaven. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father, etc.
St. Maria Goretti, pray for us!
