Create in Me a Clean Heart: A Pastoral Response to Pornography
"Everyone, in some way, is affected by increased pornography use in society. We all suffer negative consequences from its distorted view of the human person and sexuality. As bishops, we are called to proclaim anew the abundant mercy and healing of God found in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and through his Church." (Create in Me a Clean Heart, Introduction)
