“Create in me a pure heart, O God” Psalm 51:12
Members of Pure in Heart feel called to the charism of promoting pure love
and purity of heart, seeking to grow in these virtues and spread them throughout
the whole world. We recognize that the great grace of purity leads us into true
freedom. Like coals on a fire, we warm each other in fellowship and seek to enhance
this virtue in ourselves, in each other, and all those we encounter.
Our community has a special consecration to our Mother Mary and call upon the
patronage of St. Joseph, St. Maria Goretti, St. Raphael the Archangel and Blessed
John Paul II.
Prayer for Purity
Jesus, help us to love as You do. Make us pure of body, pure
of mind and pure of heart that we might see God and enjoy
His plan for us.
Make us clean and heal us from the wounds of sin.
Strengthen us each day to live the love to which You call us.
By ourselves we are weak and our hearts are not pure,
but in You we can be strong and holy.
Mary, you are the Immaculate Conception, so pure and
chaste. We pray to you for purity in our world. In particular
we pray for purity amongst the youth.
Mary, we want to be pure like you are.
St. Joseph, we want to have your courage to guard the purity of others and
Please help us in our walk with Jesus so that we can glorify God in our bodies and
join all of you in heaven one day.
Jesus, we desire to do your will. Send your Holy Spirit
down upon us to guide us and inspire us always. Bless, protect and cover each
one of us with your most precious blood so that no evil may touch us, our lives,
our work or our neighbors.
Bind us together with your Spirit of love so that we always come to you in one
mind and one heart, working together and persevering for the coming of your
heavenly kingdom. We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
