Pray for porn addicts.

Pornography is evil.  If you know someone who is watching porn please don’t stay quiet – say something.  The person is engaging in a truly destructive behaviour.  The false God of sexual liberation has bore many rotten fruit, one of them is porn.

Pornography, along with other addictions, floods the brain with dopamine and makes us feel good. Overtime, as more dopamine is released, you will feel the effects of the dopamine less and less, which leads people to search for hardcore porn and other stronger substances to feel good.

For many, pornography is a substitute for the feeling of happiness. As you numb yourself with graphic sexual images and videos, you are missing out on building some real, amazing relationships with your spouse, friends, and community. In the end, no amount of pornography will take away your problems. In fact, it will just become one of them.

Jesus Christ wants us to have joy.  There’s no joy in porn.  There’s just objectification, self-hatred, and addiction (among other possible side effects). The power of his love for you is more powerful than any love you could have for porn or any illicit substance.  Turn to him and cooperate with his grace (through his Church, the Catholic Church).  Offer your suffering, brokenness, loneliness, self-hate, etc. up to him.  Place it in his wounds.  He can heal it.
