Father Josiah Trenham
The mind of the church on masturbation, love’s thief, and pornography, the plague of the 21st Century. Masturbation is shown to be an enemy of love and proper sexual expression, and counsel is offered from the Holy Fathers on how to overcome this temptation. Pornography is shown to be the black death of the 21st century. The Holy Fathers shine the light of Jesus Christ upon the darkness of the pornography industry, exposing it according to St. Paul's injunction to "have nothing to do with the deeds of darkness but instead to expose them" (Ephesians 5:11), providing hope and guidance to those who are struggling to break unnatural attachments to pornography.
