Philippine Bishops and Pornography

The Lenten pastoral message of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines was centered on pornography.
They described pornography as a “grave evil” and a “scourge,” the bishops emphasized that man is created for love and for chastity and that “we are all called to rely on God’s grace and power to resist and to overcome sexual temptation so that we may imitate Jesus Christ who was perfectly chaste and perfectly pure.”
The bishops added:

To those who have been exploited and victimized by the pornography industry, nothing that you have done to you can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus! …
To those who make and distribute pornography, you should heed the stark warning of the Lord Jesus: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matt. 18:6) …
To those who struggle with pornography, do not allow shame, fear, or pride, to prevent you from returning to God, the Father of Mercies, who loves you beyond all your other loves … Have recourse to the sacraments regularly, especially the sacrament of confession, to receive the strength and courage from God to help you in your trials. Entrust yourself to the patronage of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Blessed Virgin Mary, who have long been linked to the pursuit of holy chastity.

    1. What? There are married people who are saint too. Jesus never forbid marriage to ordinary men. In fact he started his ministry in the wedding of Cana. Jesus recommends celibacy to people who devote for the kingdom such as priest and nuns. So dont make some excuses that you can not act morally and be like saints. We are sinners but we ought to do our best to follow God’s will.
