A World in need of a Savior

 The year is new

 and there have already been thousands slaughtered

 in the name of an ideology.

Pray for peace, beginning with

the Peace of Jerusalem.

 Week 1

During Lent, as we are making room for God, this week, let’s think about giving up lust, concentrating instead on chastity.

Chastity: Discretion of sexual conduct according to one's state in life; the practice of courtly love. Cleanliness through cultivated good health and hygiene, and maintained by regraining from intoxi-cants. To be honest with oneself, one's family, one's friends, and to all of humanity. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought through education and betterment. The ability to refrain from being distracted and influenced by hostility, temptation or corruption. All with the help of the Holy Spirit, NOT through your own works.

Lust, or lechery (carnal - luxuria) is an intense desire. Lust could be exemplified by the intense desire for money, food, fame, power, or sex.

In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful thoughts and feelings. In Dante's Inferno, souls with unforgiven lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.
