‘”Blessed are the clean of heart; they shall see God.” (St. Matthew v, 8)
“I tell you that he who casts his eyes on a woman so as to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If thy right eye is the occasion of thy falling into sin, pluck it out and cast it away from thee; better to lose one part of thy body than to have the whole cast into hell. And if thy right hand is an occasion of falling, cut it off and cast it away from thee; better to lose one of thy limbs than to have thy whole body cast into hell.” (St. Matthew v, 28-30)
“Religion, pure and immaculate with God and the Father, is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation, and to keep one’s self immaculate from this world.” (St. James i, 27)
“We are all sinners, needing to be purified by the Lord. But it is enough to take a small step towards Jesus to realize that he awaits us always with open arms, particularly in the sacrament of Reconciliation, a privileged opportunity to encounter that divine mercy which purifies us and renews our hearts.” (Pope Francis, Message for World Youth Day 2015)
