Although I am a Catholic please pray for me. I am struggling with an addiction to internet pornography and feel I need God's help.
THANK YOU,

Kyrie eleison!

Brother, whatever you do, do not stop going to confession.

Download this fine and free filter program on your computer and have someone you trust set the password. If you have no one, make up a long, hard-to-remember password like di48sqg4b9w31fdan5d93, write it down on a slip of paper, and put it in a place far away from your computer (like in a safe deposit box, or a friend/family's house, or failing that, at work).

Prayer, frequent confession, the Mass, fasting,prudence in avoiding occasions of temptation, hope and persistence, all these things can set you free from your bondage.

Getting a friend or even better a regular confessor you can be accountable to is a great help as well.

You're in my prayers. Keep up the fight! Jesus desires your peace and freedom even more than you. He will be with you every step of the way if you call to him out of the darkness.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

This simple prayer is powerful and effective.


You may also want to read and meditate upon the life of St. Mary of Egypt. You can read it here:

Here is some information on spiritual warfare that might prove helpful as well:
http://mysteryandmeaning.blogspot.com/2010/08/spiritual-warfare.html


Know that satan has no lasting victory. Have confidence that as Christ is risen, so has He given you the power to rise again and again. It is not how many times we fall, but how we persevere in the struggle. And how hard we are willing to struggle will determine our success in these battles. Remember that grace is most profoundly present in the struggle. Our Lord came not to heal the righteous, but sinners.

Peace to you.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
