True Knights...

One of the many plagues our society has been inflicted with in recent years is the spread of filth in the form of books, pictures, and videos. More addictive than heroin, pornography cripples boys, men, husbands, fathers, daughters, wives and mothers. Many Catholics, including this author, don't like to talk about the dangers of these demonic tools because the talk of them often throws one into a tumultuous sea of disaster. Yet, as uncomfortable as it is to address, addressed it must be. Dr. Plinio CorrĂȘa De Oliveira once said that the "only way to beat impurity is to run away from it" and this is probably the best advice. Yet many men and women, perhaps even some of my readers, have struggled with pornography or have family members who struggle with pornography. Telling one simply to "run away" is not always fruitful. Instead, one must be purged of his sin, then trained properly how to fight not only the battle in the world, but also the battle against his fallen human condition. Men and boys, husbands and fathers: we are the pillar and standard of our families! If we are strong, our families will be strong. If we are weak, our families will crumble! Please take a moment to look at the following website If you are struggling with sins of impurity or you have family members struggling, you do not have time to waste! Remember the exhortation of St. Peter in his First Epistle Chapter 5 v. 8-10: "Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist ye, strong in faith: knowing that the same affliction befalls your brethren who are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will himself perfect you, and confirm you, and establish you."
