Live It! Tip of the Week:
If you have not done so, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and make a firm purpose of amendment, including practical steps to avoid tempting situations. When tempted, take control of your emotions by stopping everything and taking a moment to face the temptation and replace the temptation with the truth of the situation in light of the Gospel. Then, make a choice against the temptation and do something outside of yourself, such as connecting with a friend. For the full battle plan for purity, click here.

Lord Jesus, Your resurrection makes clear Your victory over all sin and death. You are the Almighty, O Lord, and Your perfect love casts out all fear! Help me to recognize and have true sorrow for my sin, come to You for forgiveness, and take action to change my thoughts, amend my ways, and join You in the battle against all that is opposed to real love. Amen.
