Pure of heart

“That you love a girl or that you love a boy is beautiful, but don’t spoil it, don’t destroy it. Keep it pure. Keep your heart virgin. Keep your love virgin, so that on the day of your marriage you can give something beautiful to each other…the joy of a pure love.” Blessed Mother Teresa

A virgin is like an unblemished, budding rose. We need to inspire our young people to wait, to respect the true meaning and sacredness of the sexual act and to save this total gift of self until it is sealed with the holy, definitive, and sacramental bond of marriage!
