The other day a priest acquaintance sent me a note about the new Pastoral Letter from Bp. Loverde of the Diocese of Arlington concerning Pornography, “Bought With A Price: Every Man’s Duty to Protect Himself and
His Family from a Pornographic Culture”.
Pornography is not just increasing in our world, it is increasing in its volume, invasive character, and depravity. This is a huge spiritual problem that can destroy lives, not just of those who participate in it immediately, but in those who are near to the one’s being drawn into it. It is seriously addictive and destructive. Any confessor will confirm that sins concerning pornography are common now with a frightening prevalence.
I am glad that a bishop addressed this problem.
