Random Thought 1: To rise above concupiscence requires purity of heart, faith, prayer, recourse to the Sacraments, and commitment to the virtues that support this disposition. In order to overcome temptation, we must rely on God’s grace, strive to control our human passions, and seek purity of heart. True purity of heart means the aligning of our minds and wills to what God expects of us. A pure heart fosters purity of faith—thus purity in what we desire, what we do, and what we believe. (CCC 2517-2519)

            This applies to heterosexual and homosexual persons of both genders. This is a weakness that our pagan culture has completely lost sight of today. Pornography is rampant on the internet and temptations are everywhere due to the LGBT ideology which is promoted by the government. Purity of heart is condemned due to the abundance of contraception which provides women and men with freedom to sexual abundance without responsibility. God is forgotten, Jesus is condemned by our generation more than he was by the Roman Empire. Note what we must do: faith, prayer, and the Sacraments. “I will place my law within them, and write it upon their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” jer 31: 33
