Thank you for sharing all of this! Dr. Kleponis of Integrity Restored provides great services for men struggling around pornography addiction. His books are great too, and I specifically recommend ‘Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography’. I have had the opportunity to discuss some of this with him and share some of his wisdom in my upcoming book.
We are working on creating materials for men’s groups to be provided to communities across the country. Several resources are being collected and referenced, and I am interested in hearing more about what kinds of solutions you all have found or are, perhaps, looking for.
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that
I think I am following Your will does not mean that I am
actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please You
does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that, if I do this, You will lead me by the right road,
though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost
and in the shadow of death.
I will not fear, for You are ever with me,
and You will never leave me to face my perils alone,”
