Canadian bishops provide tips to youth on how to live chastity

The possibility of living a chaste life is open to any young person no matter their circumstances. The Canadian bishops say one simply has to seek the guidance of the Lord. St. Augustine was known to have a relationship with a woman for over ten years before he was baptized into the Church and led a life of chastity. To accomplish the challenge of leading a chaste life, the bishops advise young people to seek friends with similar interests, choosing entertainment such as concerts and movies that offer a positive message. These tips along with confession and spiritual guidance from a priest, can make the road towards chastity that much easier.
