We are privileged again to have another guest post; this time by Linden Predy of Ss. Peter and Paul Parish,Saskatoon, announcing the availability, free of charge of the STRIVE Program.  Pornogaphy use is ubiquitous and presents a huge problem for relationships, especially for those who want to remain faithful and true to their vocation, their spouse or even their future spouse. It is not just a societal problem but is also problematic for those who are within the Church, as Linden points out,  and without help it can be incredibly difficult to overcome. Fortunately, help is now available!

 

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Eparchy of Saskatoon.

My name is Linden Predy and I am a member of the Education Committee at Ss. Peter & Paul Church in Saskatoon. I have been involved in a new initiative to provide support to those afflicted by pornography addiction. Pornography use has become an epidemic in today’s culture.  A recent study conducted by Barna Group1 and sponsored by Proven Men Ministries, suggests that as many as 54% of Christian men and 15% of Christian women watch porn at least once a month.  Youth and Young Adults are increasingly at risk of being exposed to and becoming addicted to pornography, like at no other time in history. To help address this issue in our culture and in our Church, I am pleased to announce that Matt Fradd and Cardinal Studios’, 21 Day, Self-Directed, Interactive, Online, Porn Detox Program Strive is now Free and Open for all to use.  Each day in this program comes with a video or challenge to complete and an opportunity to connect with other people from across the globe who are taking the program through a comment section.  Each membership also includes a free 30-day trial of CovenantEyes Accountability Software.

Matt Fradd, a Catholic chastity speaker and former pornography addict, has put all of the resources and wisdom collected over his 10-year career of fighting pornography into this one program.  In collaboration with Cardinal Studios, Matt has produced a visually stunning series of videos that are accompanied with downloadable guides, fact sheets and other materials for a holistic approach to pornography detox.  This program has the power to not only explain how and why pornography is immoral and addictive, but also provides the tools and know-how to overcome it.  You can strive today to live life, fully-alive.
