Chastity Guide ……..”Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8)
..The Lord Has Greatly Blessed You!..
“And the Angel came to her and said; “Peace be with you! The Lord is with you and has greatly blessed you! (Lk. 1:28). And that was a message from heaven to Mary and who wouldn’t want to receive such visitation. Imagine Our Lord sending his angel to you inorder to inform you that He is with you and has greatly blessed you and to tell you the purpose of your existence. Such was what Mother Mary experienced. May the Lord’s name be praised! Amen.
Mary didn’t see it in a dream nor in a vision but experienced it live and direct. On the 8th of December every year we celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the BVM, that Maria was chosen for a special task and was made pure right from conception. Just as the Apostle Paul made us to understand in the day’s second reading, saying; “blessed be God the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all the spiritual blessings of heaven in Christ. Before the world was made, he chose us, chose us in Christ, to be holy and spotless and to live through love in his presence” (Eph. 1:3-6). Yes the Lord chose Mary and bestowed on her all spiritual blessings of heaven and she was holy and spotless from conception.
Mary was chosen and sanctified from conception for a special purpose on earth so also have we been chosen and sanctified at Baptism to carry out a special task. And as Mother Mary remained Holy and spotless (pure and chaste) we also are to remain holy and spotless so that the Lord will be with us and bless us as He blessed her, with Spiritual blessings from on High.
And the word of God says: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you.(Jer. 1:5). So the Lord knows who we are and wants to bless us but we have to remain Chaste and Pure like Our Mother Mary so that He will be with us and will greatly bless us. So many us have lost theirs, others blocked their blessings through immoral and unchaste actions, through fornication, indecency, adultery, abortion and the rest of them. Oh what a pity, may the Lord help us. May we stop loosing our “Blessings” to temporal pleasures, may we stop blocking our “Blessings” because of our lustful cravings.
And in the Revelation to John the beloved, he made us to understand that the dragon (Lucifer) made all attempt to conquer Mother Mary and the Child Jesus but he failed. Out of frustration he rushed down to earth to “fight against the rest of her descendents, all those who obey God’s commandments and are faithful to the truth revealed by Our Lord Jesus.”(Rev. 12:1-18). And we are her children and she our Mother since we obey God’s commandments and are faithful to the truth revealed by Our Lord Jesus. If you are not her child then join and be saved.
And the She admonishes all her Children to simply “Do whatever he tells you” (Jn. 2:5). For She knows the Lord cannot deceive you. If The Word says flee from fornication She says please flee, shun immodesty please shun it. And the Word says “Blessed are the Pure in Heart, for they shall see God.(Mt. 5:8). He wishes to Bless us only if we do whatever he tells us just as Mother Mary advised us. And He says to us “Remain Pure in Heart and I shall bless you and you shall see me.
And the Word says to us “I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for” (Jer. 29:11). Who wouldn’t want the Lord to prosper him and give him the future he craves for. I do want Him to be the architect of my life. And the Prophet Isaiah says: “The Plans of the Lord are wise and they always succeed”(Is. 28:29). And what about you? For everyone who has his hope in Christ keeps himself pure, just as Christ is pure. (1Jn. 3:3)
And the Word again says to us “Abide in me and I in you”(Jn. 15:4) and as the scripture says: “He who joins himself with the Lord becomes spiritually one with him”. (1Cor. 6:17). May we know that Our body is not to be used for sexual immorality but to serve the Lord. (1Cor. 6:13). Amen and Amen.
We Pray Our Lord Jesus helps us by pouring his grace upon us so that we may follow Our Lady’s advice by doing whatever he tells us to do. So that at the end all generations shall call us blessed for He who is mighty has done great things for us, just as we call her The Blessed Virgin Mary, (THE BVM). As we strive to remain Chaste and Pure for His sake. We make this prayer through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen and Amen.
“And as Mother Mary remained Holy and spotless (pure and chaste) we also are to remain holy and spotless so that the Lord will be with us and bless us as He blessed her, with Spiritual blessings from on High”.
