Welcome to the Talitha Ministries blog, where I share about my own journey towards purity, authenticity and healing in the midst of the brokenness I have experienced through sexual sin.
My name is Rosario.
I am 23-year-old Catholic and an ex-porn addict.
I had never known anything about sex and how my body worked. So I came upon pornography, which fed me lies about love, sexuality, relationships and my own identity and self-worth.
2 years now, I have been sober from porn, but continue to be affected by the lies that have been ingrained in my mind, heart and soul.
For a long time I believed that I was the only Catholic girl struggling with these massive issues of sexual sin, including masturbation, physical intimacy and watching pornography.
But I know I am not alone.
This is a rising issue among women in this Century, especially because we live in a society saturated with sexualised images. But although there are many women around the world in the same shoes, it is a topic that is not talked about because of the shame that surrounds it.
If you are a Catholic or Christian woman struggling with sexual sin of any kind, know that you are not alone. Whether you are struggling with porn, masturbation or lust YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
God is a Loving and Merciful Father who has created you and I to be gifts to the world. If God can love a broken soul such as mine then He loves yours too! No matter where you’re from, no matter what you’ve been through, no matter what sins you have committed, God will always and forever love you.
Always and forever remember that: You are beautiful, you are worthy, you are loved because God loved you first.
So let’s battle against the fangs of impurity together in community, let’s share each others’ witness to remove the veil of shame that silences us from seeking support and let’s empower one another as sisters in Christ.
For “just as one body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptised by one Spirit so as to form one body – whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”
(1 Corinthians 12:12-13).
