Pornography Addiction resources

The plague of pornography continues in the culture.  "Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God." (Mt 5:8) Purity of heart and mind are the aim of battling pornography, because once obtained by God's mercy and his grace to help our disciplines we will see God more and more clearly every day. Below are some resources to help fight the battle for purity and chastity.
