Many parishioners come to me asking how they can more effectively foster the virtue of purity in their life. Purity is a virtue that disposes us to see the world as God sees it and act accordingly. It’s much more expansive than physical purity only, though that’s obviously a significant component. The linked PDF (above) can be a good resource to help anyone who wants to grow in this beautiful virtue. It’s a series of exercises, reflections and other resources from the life and ministry of St. Philip Neri. A great evangelist of city living, St. Philip may be just the friend we all need to grow in virtue here in DC.
