Day 5 – Purity and Modesty
“To be pure in body is to keep chastity. To be pure in soul is not to commit sins, not to look at what one should not see . . .”
"Fashions that will greatly offend Our Lord will appear. People who serve God should not follow fashions. The Church has no fashions. Our Lord is always the same."
"The sins that lead more souls to Hell are the sins of the flesh." - Jacinta
O Mary Immaculate, who appeared at Fatima to Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta clothed in dazzling white, have mercy on those tempted by the sin that most directly contrasts with thy lofty purity. O blessed Virgin, whose virginity was so beloved by God that He performed an unheard-of miracle to preserve it in thee, have compassion on those who struggle against the horrendous seductions of impurity.
O Virgin Most Pure, grant to these souls an energetic repulse against this temptation and ward off sinful occasions from them. Fill their souls to overflowing with an intense and intransigent love for holy purity.
Restore them to their baptismal innocence and permeate them entirely with the supremely pure fragrance of thy chastity. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, form anew in the poor dwelling of our hearts, the Most Sacred and Adorable Heart of Jesus thy Son, Who is Eternal and Incarnate Purity itself.
(Here mention your request) Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, pray for us.
