Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this:
to care for orphans and widows in their affliction
and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
Sounds simple. Like a Cub Scout project.
However, “unstained by the world” can mean more than refraining from the sins that pollute the world, which could be accomplished by even a timid soul. She might be able to reach out to the downtrodden, but it likely will be in the form of a fake smile worn as a mask or in a sort of camaraderie of the beleaguered.
If “unstained by the world” means that your hope and joy are undimmed, your charity and kindness undiminished, this simple phrase describes a soul with the deepest spiritual life, a courageous, undaunted hero whose ordered life begets peace, resists discouragement and suffers purposefully. She loves every face she sees. Being in her presence means being prized and enjoying her glance means sharing in the hope that fills the eyes of those whose gaze is fixed on the joy of heaven.
She is Immaculate.
