Custodia Oculorum

Licentiousness abounds in the world today and getting back into this ancient Catholic practice of custody of the eyes is most salutary.

St. Francis Xavier: "You are unworthy to have God look upon you, since for the sake of looking upon a man, you do not regard the risk of losing God."

Highly irritating prurient (trending) video posts on Facebook, rampant unabashedly trashy sexy bashes on the ramp featured in the local news, and most importantly, St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi's vision of where souls stained with sins of impurity are lodged in Purgatory inspired this video: "From thence she passed into the place where those souls were imprisoned which had formerly been stained with impurity. She saw them in so filthy and pestilential a dungeon that the sight produced nausea. She turned away quickly from that loathsome spectacle."
