Purity

Purity of Mind

"In the realm of evil thoughts none induces to sin as much as do thoughts that concern the pleasure of the flesh."
-St. Thomas Aquinas

"In temptations against chastity, the spiritual masters advise us, not so much to contend with the bad thought, as to turn the mind to some spiritual, or, at least, indifferent object. It is useful to combat other bad thoughts face to face, but not thoughts of impurity."
-St. Alphonsus Liguori

 

Purity of Speech

"A man who has the habit of abusive language will never mature in character as long as he lives"
-Sirach 23:15

"Filthy talk makes us feel comfortable with filthy action. But the one who knows how to control the tongue is prepared to resist the attacks of lust."
-St. Clement of Alexandria

"Never talk of impure things or events, not even to deplore them. Look, it's a subject that sticks more than tar. Change the conversation, or if that's not possible, continue, but speaking of the need and beauty of holy purity--a virtue of the men who know what their souls are worth."
-St. Josemaria Escriva

The man of impure speech is a "person whose lips are but an opening and a supply pipe which hell uses to vomit its impurities upon the earth."
-St. John Vianney

"That conversation . . . was as dirty as a sewer! It is not enough for you to take no part in it. You must show your repugnance to it strongly!"
-St. Josemaria Escriva

"I have never talked about impurity. . . . But I have spoken many times, as I have to do, about chastity, purity, and the joyful affirmation of love."
-St. Josemaria Escriva
