“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Pornography is a highly addictive monster that can, and does, destroy people's marriages, relationships and their internal sense of self-worth. Pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry that exploits and addicts people. Every second Americans spend $3,000 on pornography. 

Christians are not immune to pornography addiction. It's a rising problem for churches across North America. A new documentary has been produced entitled The Heart of the Matter: Finding Light in the Darkness of Pornography Addiction. It is an important and valuable resource for pastors, counsellors and lay-people alike. See http://www.theheartofthemattermovie.com/ to order your copy of this timely video. 

From the website:

"If you've ever wondered if there can be any hope in pornography addiction, this film provides an answer -- yes. If you or someone you love has struggled in silence with pornography or sex addiction, you're not alone. This documentary introduces you to Christians across the country who have found themselves ensnared in pornography and who are in various stages of recovery. Experience the joy of hope and possibility of recovery from pornography addiction as you watch this life-changing film."

A very important reminder of a pervasive danger. It peeks out at us and calls to us in so many not-so-subtle commercials, PG movies, "kids" shows, and "innocent" internet sites.

We need to put on the armor of Faith and keep Jesus in the Eucharist and in the Confessional as our constant guardian and ask His Mother to be always at our side.

Thank you for the reminder, Mark.
