Brave comeback for Purity!

Our Lady of Fatima told Blessed Jacinta that sins of impurity were responsible for most people going to Hell.

In today's hypersexualized world, no one in their right mind would dispute that claim.

However, purity is making a brave comeback among some sectors of society. For example, please read this: A commitment to purity

SUCCESSFUL — BUT CONTROVERSIAL — CEREMONY MARKS ITS 10TH ANNIVERSARY
May 17, 2008 - 1:11AM

A twirling mass of white lace surrounded a rough wooden cross as a troupe of young women danced in a circle looking like porcelain dolls come to life. Then Randy Wilson and Kevin Moore hoisted swords in the air and a ballroom full of 149 fathers and daughters walked beneath them toward the cross and laid white roses at its base. The swords symbolized the fathers' commitment to battle for their daughters and the roses symbolized the daughters' commitment to God to remain pure.

Then Wilson announced, "Let the ball begin." This is the 10th anniversary of the Father-Daughter Purity Ball, one of the most successful - and controversial - ideas to come out of Colorado Springs' conservative Christian community.

Fathers at the purity ball, held at The Broadmoor on Friday night, pledge not only to live purely, but to be the authority and protector of their daughters' purity. The idea for the ball started with the Wilsons, a self-described "little homeschool family in Briargate." When the oldest of Randy Wilson's five daughters turned 13, he went in search of a watershed event to celebrate her transition into womanhood, as well as his commitment as a father to stand by her. He couldn't find one.

"We didn't see a place to honor the father-daughter relationship in our culture, so we created a place," said his wife, Lisa Wilson. Their idea has turned into a nationwide movement, with 4,400 purity balls taking place in the U.S. in 2007, said the National Abstinence Clearinghouse in Washington.

Let's beg God to favor the purity movement and stop the impurity avalanche of magazines, dress, language and behavior that we see in schools, supermarkets, TV, etc.
