Thank you for your blog. Father Joseph Kentenich, Founder of the Schoenstatt Movement wrote a prayer when he was still very young which may be worthwhile to mention in light of your blog:

Hail Mary,
for the sake of your purity
keep me pure in body and soul.
Open wide to me your heart
and the heart of your Son.
Implore for me deep self knowledge
and the grace to persevere
and remain faithful until death.
Give me souls;
keep all else for yourself.
(Heavenwards p. 172)

We can pray this prayer for all the souls suffering under the chains of pornography and many others… “Give me souls; keep all else for yourself.”
