“Swim Against the Stream!”

Every day we receive many letters from people who have decided to join the Movement of Pure Hearts. They want to swim with Jesus against the current so as to achieve perfect happiness – a happiness that is found only in the joy of pure love. The following are extracts from some of these letters:

“I want to thank Our Lord and Our Lady because they have brought meaning to my life. They have rescued me from the snares of impurity, drugs, alcohol and steroids. All these things belong to the past. Now Christ is my future. I have joined the Movement of Pure Hearts because I want my heart to be constantly pure. I want to be chaste for my beloved Jesus, to have a pure and undying love for Him. I believe I will meet this challenge since ‘I can do everything through Him who gives me strength through Mary Immaculate!’ (St. Maximilian Kolbe). Jesus, I trust in you!” Karol aged 17;

“I entrust my life, my heart and my love to Jesus. I know His love for me is unconditional and eternal. I know that Satan will do everything to take my soul, to make me stray from the path that God has set me on. I can tell by the temptations that beset me. I know I will fall many times. But I am happy and confident that Jesus will restore me to life. He will heal my wounds, take me in His arms, wipe away my tears and bring me to complete maturity.” Mariusz;

 “I would like to belong to the Joy of Pure Hearts. This is how I call it. To be with Jesus is to be truly happy.” Bart;

“I think purity is one of the most beautiful gifts the Creator can bestow upon us. That is why I have decided not to waste it. I am a member of the Movement of Pure Hearts. It helps me to deal with everyday life. I often experience temptations, but no one said it would be easy. ‘If you want to find the source, you have to go upstream, against the current’ (John Paul II, Roman Triptych). Let us not be afraid of challenges. It is worth trying! Nothing can give us more happiness than a pure heart. I want to follow Christ’s example, to make my love pure; and I want this with all my heart. Christ’s love is genuine and everlasting. I pray for strength and purity for all my brothers and sisters in the Movement of Pure Hearts. Hallelujah!” Asia;

“My adventure with the Movement of Pure Hearts began as with many people. At first I just prayed the prayer of consecration. After a while I decided to join the movement, although I was afraid I would not manage. But then my prayers turned dry. They became a chore, not the heart’s deepest longing. I stopped praying. I said the prayer from time to time only, when I felt like it. On reconsidering the matter, I decided to start over again, this time with greater understanding, fully aware of my own weakness. I trusted God would help me. So I have joined the Movement of Pure Hearts again – with my whole heart. I am 24 years old and it is extremely important for me to remain pure, although I have had problems with self-abuse since I was a child. Now I want to be chaste. I do not want to rely on my own efforts but to cooperate with God’s grace. It is   easier to bear the burden together. When I used to fall into sin, I hated myself. Now I run to Confession, trusting that God will forgive me and continue to guide me. Please enroll me in the Book of the Movement of Pure Hearts. I would also like to receive your blessing. Please pray for me and all those people who are struggling to remain pure.” Sunday;

 “I really want to join the Movement of Pure Hearts and be pure, healthy and free. Jesus Christ, my Lord, I give You my heart and myself. I want you to heal me, to make me free and my love pure. I want to be your real friend. Give me your hand and lead me through life to salvation.” Andrzej, from Lithuania;

“By joining the Movement of Pure Hearts we want to give ourselves to Christ, to entrust our lives to Him. We know that without His help it is be possible to persevere in love and purity. We give ourselves entirely to Jesus and His mercy. We have both decided to join the Movement of Pure Hearts and trust that this decision will bear good fruit. Christ is the way and we want to walk it together.” Magda and Martin;

“I want to belong to MPH even though I know that this will not be easy for me. When I pick myself up and promise to persevere, I fall into sin again and realize that I am very weak. I need God’s help. Please remember me in your prayers. I know only God can help me to fight my weaknesses. I have now remained chaste for eighty seven days. I want to be free from this sin. That is why I have decided to fight and not give up. Lord, I give my whole life to you.” Magdalena.
