St Dominic: Holy Eyes and Holy Purity for Men

A short helpful post by Taylor Marshall:

Someone once asked Saint Dominic why he kept his eyes lowered to the ground during most the day.

The saint’s response: “So that my eyes might be pure when I one day behold the Blessed Mother.”

Incidentally, here is a good custom for men who try to keep their eyes and hearts pure. I have memorized the following Bible verse and I recite it when I am tempted by the eyes:

“I have made a covenant with my eyes, that I would not so much as look upon a virgin” (Job 31:1)…

Rest here.
