Dubbed the “Live Pure Conference 2014”, the event, heeding CBCP’s call for “renewed and integral evangelization”, has for its theme #LoveProject for this Year of the Laity with its challenge “Choose to be Brave”.
In a letter dated May 31, 2014 endorsing the activity, Villegas stated, “Let us celebrate love and chastity among our youth.”
The organizers of the conference, young Catholic leaders from the Live Pure Movement, seek to gather teens and young adults from different walks of life to reflect on the “God-given gifts of womanhood and manhood strengthened by the virtues of chastity and love”.
“Love is powerful. Chastity is beautiful. Holiness is attractive,” Villegas added.
