Please remember me (and those like me) in your petitions. I am trying to be chaste, but am finding it extremely difficult to kick the habit of masturbation with visuals. I am male, and wanting to some day have a family...I want to be ready for that future, if God desires it.
Mary and Joseph, interecede for us.
I know what you are going through, my Catholic brother, I to my perpetual shame and sorrow even to this day have also committed sins against the most precious virtue of purity. Do not fear or despair. I give you one simple suggestion from my experience: have recourse to the Most Immaculate Heart of our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary by Three Hail Mary's Devotion for Purity
and Final Perseverance to which are attached from our Heavely Mother Herself the promises of the virtues of purity and final perseverance, read more on this powerful devotion here: http://www.fatima.org/essentials/requests/3hailmaryleaf.asp
Mother Mary and Most Chaste Joseph, vouchsafe for all of us the most precious Virtues of Purity, Final Peseverance and Devotion to the duties of our vocation.
I will pray for you, my friend, pray for me as well.
