Pure in Heart

On this weeks programme we are joined by the mission team from Pure in Heart - Caitriona Heffernan, Ailish Butler and Alison Holland - and Fr John Mockler from Newcastle West parish. The mission team introduce the work that Pure in Heart does in promoting an alternative life style choice to young people.

Pure In Heart is an international Catholic Movement of young adults who through prayer and friendship, strive to learn, live and share the truth, beauty and meaning of human sexuality.
They offer an engaging and balanced presentation to adolescents that promotes a healthy attitude towards love and relationships with their primary aim being to encourage young people to become the best version of themselves by promoting their selfworth, a positive self-image, and provide the necessary skills to build lasting relationships.

Gospel - John 13: 31-35

When he had gone out, Jesus said, ‘Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, “Where I am going, you cannot come.” I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’
