When you take a step toward purity God lavishes graces upon you. You must allow Jesus to purify your soul in order for Him to possess it. Servants of Christ, confess your sins. Always speak and think like Jesus. Our good and kind Jesus understands that you struggle and He does not see these struggles as a problem. They are part of your movement to unity. Do not fear the struggles. But you must struggle. Remove anything from your life that encourages impurity of thought or intention. You cannot live like others in the world. A problem for many religious today is that they are trying to live two ways and they experience conflict. They then incorrectly decide that it is their vocation causing the conflict. Well, if the vocation were being lived in purity there would be no conflict. Do you understand? Do not pull away from the vocation to seek your peace and contentment. Pull away from the world and move further into your vocation and you will find the peace that is justly yours. This is a common mistake for many religious today and you know that I speak the truth. This is why many have left their vocations. They could not reconcile one, the world, with the other, their vocation. So they made the wrong choice. They chose the world, seeking peace. Most do not find peace in the world, but if they seek Jesus He rewards them and all is well. Most decisions to serve Jesus in a religious vocation, though, are sound decisions. Sacrifice is required, of course, and some find they are uncomfortable with the required sacrifices or they are unsuited for the life. In these cases, they serve Jesus in another way and this is acceptable to heaven. The desire to serve heaven is good and holy and comes from heaven. Embrace this call.
