 Father Sean Kilcawley – The Spiritual and Emotional Costs of Porn Use

Father Sean speaks with a firm, quiet authority about pornography. It’s not just because he’s a priest of the High Priest Jesus Christ, nor that he’s the Theological Advisor to Integrity Restored (www.integrityrestored.com).

It’s also because, starting at a very young age, he got ensnared by the shiny darkness of compulsive porn use. His counsel is, therefore, personal, experiential. In this revealing interview, he recalls the disturbing but ultimately healing experience of meeting a former porn actor – whom he (Father Sean) recognized as someone who appeared in a porn VHS he had seen countless times. Only Providence could have arranged such an encounter and produce such a strong dose of restoration…

This is a conversation laden with rich scriptural insights into the question of our deepest identity, and the irreplaceable presence of God’s love to bring full and lasting healing from any kind of addiction.

    Use of Epsom salt in water , massaged on or sprayed on the body to be slowly absorbed and thus correct the low levels said to be prevalent in as many as 80% of the population ( adding chewable B12 , to be absorbed under the tongue another help for older persons ) all such to improve overall health , to help calm down unruly passions , to help to restore the dignity and gratitude that God wants for us each – every baptized person too , sharing in His priesthood so that faced with reports of failures / weakness , the spirit of lie , not to bring any prideful contempt , to damage our awareness of the dignity and role of priests or of others , instead to have compassion and offering prayerful support of holy lives .

    As the ‘ little Vatican ‘ media site , the sad / scandalous news about some major problems that were reported in the Vatican Holy Office may be also linked to this subject and thus worth bringing up .

    It is with the hope that the theme of deliverance ministry catches fiery speed in The Church that persons and families feel empowered to recognize and renounce the spirits at the earliest stage , which usually come from the lie that one is not loved enough by The Father .

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNsY60NexxE – the need to verbally renounce such spirits , commanding them to leave and never return , in The Name of Jesus and invoking the Holy Spirit , asking for mercy for all occasions of having allowed lying spirits to bring their lies in the form of self pity , fears , envy , lusts , unholy soul ties and so on ..

    The truth of how spiritual ties and relationship with The Father, in holy lives are far superior to the fleshly realms of the enemy and its destruction , gulit and shame – that truth might be better taken in , in trust in The Lord , when the lying spirits and their holds have been removed and that would be mercy indeed .

    Having large Vilnius images around – hope that also would add well to such a ministry .

    God bless !
