9 Days for Life, Day 6, USCCB

DAY SIX:
January 26, 2017
Intercession
May those affected by pornography experience the Lord’s mercy and healing.

Prayers

Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be

Reflection

We are created with a desire to love and be loved. We long to be known, understood, and accepted for who we are. In contrast, pornography distracts us from our call to love by objectifying people and bringing hurt and pain. As noted in Create in Me a Clean Heart, “it is an illusory substitute for real relationships and intimacy, which in the end bring true joy.”

However, “no wound is out of the reach of Christ's redeeming grace. Christ is our hope! The Church proclaims the truth about love, sexuality, and the dignity of each person, and she seeks to provide the Lord’s mercy and healing for those harmed by pornography. … For further resources and help, visit www.usccb.org/cleanheart.”*
