This post is for Catholic Men.
Guys, I’m excited to share with you a “secret” to conquering porn and growing strong in purity that I have been learning about.
Tell Me the Secret Devin
The “secret” is to start practicing meditation (also called mental prayer).
In meditation you pray silently, without words, lifting your heart and soul to God, while you train your mind upon some truth of God.
That truth might be Christ’s Passion and Death, His Resurrection, God’s omnipotence, His goodness, His love, His justice, His mercy, His Church, some aspect of Christ’s life, His saints, and so on.
Start with just 5 minutes per day, then build up to 10, then 15 minutes.
What’s the Catch?
There is no catch. But while it is simple, it is not easy. When I meditate, a hundred distracting thoughts invade my mind: about my work, my family, what I’m going to eat for dinner.
But you simply catch those distractions, put them out of your mind, and train yourself back onto the topic of your meditation. God, who gives grace to us, will help you as you do this.
I haven’t had a miraculous meditation yet, where I was lifted up to Heaven and saw visions–nor do I expect that to happen–it has been pretty ordinary overall, but I have faith in God and in the lives of the saints that this practice is powerful in growing in holiness.
