Seven Keys to Chastity

* Self-knowledge. The more we know ourselves, including our weaknesses and propensities, the better we are able to avoid occasions of sin.
* Fleeing temptation. If we find ourselves confronted with a temptation to sin against chastity, the manly thing is to run, not fight.
* Self-denial. Chastity is a grace, but it’s also the fruit of spiritual effort and discipline, known as asceticism.
* Fidelity to prayer. Our relationship to Christ gives us the grace we need to strive for greater purity each day.
* Obedience to God’s Commandments. We cannot be men of integrity if we persist in sexual sin.
* Spiritual resilience. Getting right up after a moral lapse, great or small, and trusting in God’s superabundant mercy is crucial in our journey to spiritual maturity.
* Eucharist. Our Lord desires to strengthen us in chastity through the gift of his body and blood.
