"St. Faustina discloses that it took ‘many years’ of prayers to the Blessed Mother to end any and all temptations of the flesh. The year was 1929. During Mass, just before Communion, she and her fellow sisters were renewing their religious vows when Jesus appeared at her side, took off a ‘golden cincture’ (a belt of purity) from around His waist and tied it around her waist. He told her: I give you eternal love that your purity may be untarnished and as a sign that you will never be subject to temptations against purity. Saint Faustina writes that, from that moment on, she ‘never experienced any attacks against this virtue (of purity), either in my heart or in my mind.’ She said that she later came to understand ‘that this was one of the greatest graces which the Most Holy Virgin Mary had obtained for me."
