Litany of Chastity



My dearest sisters,

The most important part of striving for chastity is to pray. We will fall if we rely on our own strength. But with the grace of the Lord, we are able to overcome so much.

Today I wanted to share with you the Litany of Chastity. In those moments that are extremely difficult or where you are in a moment of great temptation, pray this Litany. (Forewarning, this litany is long. Bring this to prayer today, when you have a few minute to come to the Lord and share it with those in your life who you feel also need it)

Pray the litany as follows: ~ Say the Our Father ~ Pray the Litany ~ Close with the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

O JESUS, that I can live in chaste purity of heart, grant me the courage. TO ADMIT that my heart becomes corrupted by my craving for the acceptance of others, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by making my body—a temple of the Holy Spirit—into an object of lust and erotic pleasure, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by immodesty, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by anything sexy, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by tight or revealing clothing, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by popular entertainment, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by hostility and anger, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted by hidden anger at my parents, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I carry resentments, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I hide my helplessness, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I hide my emotional hurt, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I desire to get revenge for injuries inflicted on me, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I use others so I can feel powerful, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I try to be in control, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I lack trust in God’s providence, grant me the grace, O Lord. To admit that my heart becomes corrupted when I lack trust in God’s justice, grant me the grace, O Lord.

FROM the enticement of immodest clothing, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of an attractive face, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of a well-shaped physique, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of bare flesh, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of erotic thoughts, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of pornographic images, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of feeling erotic arousal, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of “feeding” on the erotic excitement of others, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of memories of past sins, deliver me, O Lord. From the enticement of believing that a body—mine or another’s—can fill my emotional emptiness and loneliness, deliver me, O Lord.

FOR a love of purity of heart, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of humility, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of quietude, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of holy silence, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of retreat from the corruption and evil of the world, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of contemplative prayer, inspire me, O Lord. For a love of solace in God, inspire me, O Lord. For such a love of God that I might turn away from all worldly attractions and may cling to the joys of everlasting life, inspire me, O Lord.

THAT spiritual fruits will grow in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of love in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of joy in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of peace in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of patience in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of kindness in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of generosity in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of faithfulness in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of gentleness in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of self-restraint in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of modesty in my heart, grant this, O Lord. For the growth of chastity in my heart, grant this, O Lord.

Amen.

Praying for you sisters

In Christ, Diana
