Virtue Quote: St. Cyril of Jerusalem

It perfects the holocaust begun by poverty in the goods of fortune, and continued by chastity in those of the body, by offering to God the liberty, the [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

"Purity as a Christian virtue is revealed in the Pauline letters as an effective way of detaching oneself from what is a fruit of the concupiscence of the flesh in the human heart. Abstaining 'from unchastity,' which implies keeping the body 'with holiness and reverence,' allows us to deduce that according to the Apostle’s teaching, [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales

"Purity is the lily among virtues – by it men approach to the Angels.  There is no beauty without purity, and human purity is chastity.  We speak of the chaste as honest, and of the loss of purity as dishonor; purity is an intact thing, its converse is corruption."
