From a woman whose husband struggles with an addiction to pornography:
We help one another. We’re faithful Catholics, we love God and we want nothing other than heaven. But we struggle, we are tempted, we fall, we hurt one another, and we forgive. We lift one another up in prayer. I am glad to know about his temptations, because now I can pray for this specifically every day. He has assured me that he loves me, wants only me, has no emotional attachment to anyone else, and I believe him. This has helped me a lot.
This anonymous commenter was reaching out and writing in response to another woman who shared that her husband has a similar problem. And this, my friends, is why I love what you all do with our weekly Coffee Talks. This is real help for real people who are struggling and hurting. This is so much bigger and more important than anything I could ever hope to accomplish on this blog.
So, even for the silly sharing, the small-problem sharing, and the not-quite-so-heavy sharing you do here each week: Thank you. And God bless you.
