One of the most important duty of the state is purity of life, subjugation of sensuality out of necessity fot the body longs for it due to the corruption of our nature For the flesh lusteth against the spirit: and the spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary one to another: so that you do not the things that you would Gal 5,17.
God Himself highly value and rewards this virtue, blessing those who remain pure like Patriarch Joseph, John the Baptist, Susanna, Mary, Joseph the Foster Father of Jesus, John the Apostle, Holy Innocents Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God Matt 5, 8.
And how people of the world value purity? Even famous from immorality ancient Romans highly respected consecrated virgins (vestals) and german tribes particularly esteemed their virginal priestesses. Since, by the grace of God Our Lady became virgin mother, Lord Jesus and apostles praised the virtue of purity the most, this virtue blossomed in Christian world. The worst enemy of purity is lust But I see another law in my members, fighting against the law of my mind, and captivating me in the law of sin, that is in my members. Rom 7, 23.
Eeven cedars of Libanon, like David and Solomon were defeated by lust. Be watchful then of seducers and do not trust yourself. Indecent, blasphemous movies, books, newspapers, TV programmes. No more complains, it is time to act. Catholic Action may help to cope Let no sin therefore reign in your mortal body, so as to obey the lusts thereof Rom 6, 12
