Jesus, Lover of chastity, Mary, Mother most pure,
and St. Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin,
to you I come at this hour, begging you to plead with God for me.
I earnestly wish to be pure in thought, word and
deed in imitation of your own holy purity.
Obtain for me, then, a deep sense of modesty which will
be reflected in my external conduct.
Protect my eyes, the windows of my soul, from
anything that might dim the luster of a heart
that must mirror only Christlike purity.
And when the “Bread of Angels becomes the
Bread of me” in my heart at Holy Communion, seal
it forever against the suggestions of sinful pleasures.
Heart of Jesus, Fount of all purity, have mercy on us. Amen.
