Intro Text

As we look forward to our future, I feel compelled, as your shepherd, to address with all of you the issue that is wreaking havoc in our lives as individuals, marriages, and families and indeed throughout our society today. Pornography is a pervasive problem in our modern American society. It causes corrosive damage to children, whose innocence is stolen; to men and women, who feel great guilt and shame for viewing pornography, occasionally or habitually; to spouses, who feel betrayed and traumatized; and to men, women, and children, who are exploited by the pornography industry.

This new website, Clean Heart Online, prepared for our use by Covenant Eyes, is focused on serving and providing resources for Catholic Ministry Leaders, Educators, Parents and those who struggle with addiction.

I feel strongly that we need to undertake an initiative as a diocese to educate ourselves on the destructive power that pornography use has on so many areas of life today. As Catholics, we must face this reality and its challenges. We must create a family atmosphere that deals realistically with the negative consequences of pornography use today.
