Chastity Speaker Matthew Fradd talks about Porn for a living and he’s not ashamed of it, learn more about his work at www.MattFradd.com & www.ThePornEffect.com

He recalls his exposure to porn since he was 8 years old especially when the age of the internet came in, it was a downhill road which made him realize how it was perverting the way he looked at women.

Then one day, Truth hit him in the face when he was challenged by a Dominican Friar in the sacrament of Reconciliation when the Friar said: “This is a terrible preparation for marriage and you must stop”, in that instant Matt had found that he was treated like a true man in seriousness and respect.

Through God’s Grace, the Sacraments, prayer, accountability, and patient perseverance, he began trying to be free of this sin and other sins. When asked if he still gets tempted to this day, he reflects on not letting the things we struggle with define us and ultimately stating that “Struggling with pornography can ultimately be a very efficient means of becoming a Saint”, he highlights that “struggling doesn’t mean to give into, but to violently resist.”

He said that what is needed is Moral courage, self mastery, patience in order to attain the virtue of chastity, and showing our Love to God by rejecting the sin of pornography every moment of our lives. In this age, where this sin is rampant, especially on the internet, we continue the fight to evangelize the “digital continent” by igniting beacons of light to scatter the shadows that plague this time of history. We continue to fight on for our generation and the generations to come with faith, hope, and love. Hope Lives.

El hombre y la mujer somos diferentes, pero tenemos la misma dignidad. Es justamente esa complementariedad entre el hombre y la mujer que hace que el plan de Dios para el matrimonio tenga tanta alegría, lógica, y que le hace la fundación la nuestra sociedad. Para el bien de todas las culturas del mundo, es necesario que los esposos hacen sacrificios diarios para el bien de su matrimonio, y de su familia.
Los esposos Karim y Neil comparten con nosotros su testimonio del plan de Dios para el matrimonio y la familia, y su entrega completa, total, fiel y fecunda.
¿Cómo fortalece su matrimonio o su noviazgo la complementariedad del hombre y la mujer? Comparte su experiencia en los comentarios abajo.

Men and women are different, very different actually, but equal in dignity. It is this complementarity of men and women that makes God’s plan for marriage so joyful, logical, and the building block of society. Strengthening global cultures through the daily sacrifice of marriages rooted within love is key for the future health of our world. Karim and Neil are living out and bearing witness to the hope of God’s perfect plan for marriage, family, openness to life, and laying down one’s life for another.
