This anthology aims to provide the best spiritual reading the Catholic Church has to offer on the virtue of chastity.  It compiles selections from the doctors of the Church, saints, desert fathers, popes, and theologians to highlight all facets of the Church’s teaching on the topic of purity. 

This volume hopes to provide a timely antidote against the predominant currents of impurity in our modern world, of which Our Lady at Fatima warned, “The sins which cause most souls to go to hell are the sins of the flesh.” For those struggling to obtain this virtue, overwhelmed by habitual sins, or battling with constant temptations—the narrow path to purity of heart and perfect chastity will be clearly illuminated herein.

Inside are passages from St. John Cassian, St. Alphonsus, St. Francis de Sales, St. John Climacus, St. Jean Vianney, St. John Chrysostom, and other spiritual powerhouses who warred manfully against the impure passions.  The volume can easily be used as a reader, which does not require it to be read in its entirety and chapters can be read out of order.

“Holy Purity, the angelic virtue, is a jewel so precious that those who possess it become like the angels of God in heaven, even though clothed in mortal flesh.”

St. John Bosco
