Pure In Heart – Ireland

Here is some encouraging news from Ireland: a new movement that aims at bringing back chastity and purity to the lives of young people. These beautiful virtues used to be an important part of Catholic Irish identity before the Sexual Revolution of the sixties, and the recent Secular attacks on traditional Christian marriage and the family. 

“Pure In Heart offers an engaging and balanced presentation to adolescents that promotes a healthy attitude towards love and relationships. Our primary aim is to encourage young people to become the best version of themselves by promoting their self-worth, a positive self-image, and provide the necessary skills to build lasting relationships. We have spoken to over 125.000 young people to date and further groups have since been established in England, Wales, Haiti, U.S., Kenya and Liberia.”

[Edit.: “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?” (1 Cor. 16:19).

Sadly, this description above of the Pure In Heart movement makes no mention of Ireland’s Catholic roots, or the underlying reason why we have “self-worth” to start with. Such is the current hostile mood towards the Church in Ireland, it was considered wiser to focus only on the humanistic and ethical benefits of chastity first of all, even though the great majority of its members are in fact practicing Catholics.]

    A secular movement “humanistic and ethical based chastity”
    Matthew 10:33
    But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.

    Robert,

    I have looked into this and I do not think this is a “secular movement” at all. Quite the contrary in fact! It is drawing together the Church’s teaching on why sex is special, a gift from God, and why only Holy Matrimony can contain it. When used and abused in the wrong way sex is demeaned and cheapened, as mentioned in the video.

    The edited text here above refers to how the introductory video is presented (i.e. without a mention of chastity and continence being part of Catholic moral teaching) perhaps so that the movement may more likely draw the attention or curiosity of young people, before explaining to them the beauty of Holy Purity and it’s important part in God’s plan “to increase and multiply” within the safe bounds of the family.

    Yes Kathleen I watched the video and understand. But just because we have been sifted like wheat doesn’t mean we should hide the Light of Faith. If you have Persevered with the Faith, the prayers and penance, you will have seen the fruits within your lives.
    The denials of Peter during the Night (the cock crow heralds the return of Light the Dawn).
    If the Sun is eclipsed it will return (the clouds of Sin obscured the Sun at Fatima)
    A 100 years of sifting by Satan that’s 20 century.
    Luke 22:31
    And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
    Here is the choice either the road to Hell or the path to Heaven. Our Lady’s Triumph announced at Fatima requires Our Free Will to stand against the errors of Moderrnism There is this self weakness to step back and wait for God’s intervention but We have to play Our part.
    Obviously going against naturalism/modernism brings ridicule contempt etc. etc.. Our Lord told Us what would happen.
    They Need to replace Pure Heart with Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.
    The Eucharist is Body. Blood (that’s Adams flesh before the Fall). The Immaculate Conception means Flesh without Adams Sin. Which means Creation. The Creative Act that takes bread and wine and it becomes the Flesh and Blood of Our Lord (image of God).
    Yet in the Church there are those whose intellect dallies with Evolution and Genesis which is a denial of the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass.
    The Triumph of Fatima requires Us to bring Light back into a Apostate world.
