Chasity part 1

The above image is truly something to meditate on. The notion that more souls go to hell for sins of the flesh than for any other reason is really quite striking and note that Fatima was in 1917 well before the invention of the VHS, DVD, Playboy Magazine, and the internet.

If someone is addicted to impurities of any sort, the only escape is through the Father, Son and Holy Ghost with the assistance from Heaven, especially the Blessed Mother.

One remedy given to us by the Queen of Heaven is to consecrate ourselves to her immaculate heart. The below prayer is one of the best ways to do just that.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
St. Louis De Montfort’s Consecration

I, (Name), a faithless sinner – renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faihful to Him than I have ever been before. In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.

Another remedy often recommended is the Holy Rosay, mainly focusing on the three original mysteries of the Joyful Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries, and the Glorious Mysteries.

There is a useful app located in the app store, which can help with this purpose.

Here is a link to the app below:

The cost is $2.99 for the app, which is relatively inexpensive. If that is too much money for you, please email me at j@jacksbury.com and maybe we can find a solution.

Remember to turn to the Lord and Our Lady often throughout the day. These above remedies are just the first steps. Our Lady of Fatima implores us to pray the Holy Rosary daily, reciting the 5 mysteries within one of the above categories listed above (Joyful, Sorrowful, or Glorious).

As we continue on to Part 2 at a later time, we will list additional practical steps to battle the vice(s) of impurity.

God bless you all.
