Intercession: May those affected by pornography experience the Lord’s mercy and healing.
‘Let your modesty be known to all men. The Lord is nigh.’ –
‘I urge you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.’ – Romans 12:1-2
God desires from you the least degree of purity of conscience more than all the works you can perform.
–St. John of the Cross
‘What is it all for? If they only knew what eternity is.’ – Bl. Jacinta Marto of Fatima, age 9, on seeing immodest and fashionably dressed women
‘How beautiful then is modesty and what a gem among virtues it is.’ – St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church

Day 6 Reflection and prayers HERE
I am a sinner. A repentant sinner. In all that you can read in all I have written, what it all comes down to is I have done nothing. Nothing that anyone else who believes in our Lord would not have done. I am a sinner. A repentant sinner, only now, living the faith that our Lord has given to us. I am no different than anyone else. Anyone else who said yes Lord.
This is where my entire conversion of heart has come to, today. I have a blazing love for all souls, but more for our Lord. I try to live within the balance of the world to come, and exile. I can not survive without our Lord. Without being in full communion with Him and His bride. Without receiving the sacraments continually, and in a steady life of prayer. I can not live in Him, without the glory being given to Him at all times. This is where He has brought me. Many years have passed and I have been through many trials. In all my tribulation, I have accomplished nothing but the acceptance of God gaining my soul. Only today, the race home has begun. All else was simply training for the race. With our Lords help, may I win to give Him the glory and all my love, as today and all days, belong to Him. I have done nothing, but everything wrong. Today the right path is open. Only now finding I am truly empty, to be filled with our Lord. You, Lord have “Cleaned the inside of cup and dish first so that it and the outside are both clean.” All glory and honor to God.
EDIT TO ADD:
Recognizing sin, accepting mercy is key to salvation, pope says
Jesus told his disciples that the entrance to heaven is like a “narrow gate,” not because God has made salvation so difficult, but because people find it difficult to recognize their sinfulness and accept God’s mercy, Pope Francis said.
When no one cares about what you have seen, what you have done, the changes in your soul that only God could do, good! Then will you start to understand that God cares, God has done everything and that is all that matters.
