I would advise getting a Catholic screensaver for your computer/phone. Feeling tempted? Boom! Jesus in your face! :p
Get yourself a scapular and a miraculous medal, and a rosary....Just put on the armor of God man! :highprayer: Say the rosary every day/night. If you always feel more tempted in the night (I always do), say the rosary at night, make it a habit! Go to confession every week (that's what I do)! Never take Communion when you have fallen! And soon, you will be lasting longer, and being holier!:getholy:
Pray the Rosary, pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, they help! I'm living proof!
God be with you! (Incidently, abbreviated today as Good Bye:) )
I tried wearing the scapular before but at the time it was almost like I was wearing it in a superstitious way so I don't think it was helping me. I might start wearing one again. Only thing is I hate the way it feels. I don't like wearing jewelry or necklaces or rings or anything like that. I had a St. Benedict's crucifix with some saints medals on a necklace but I just sort of stopped wearing it. Maybe I will again. I will when I'm ready. I'll work up to it. The medals I had on the necklace were of Blessed John Paul II, St. Joan of Arc, St Anne, and a Miraculous medal, all my favorite saints.
Thank you for your advice, and your prayers. I honestly had stopped going to church for a while, and I just decided to start talking on these forums and now I am ready to go back again. Sometimes it can feel like you are banging your head against a wall, and Church doesn't seem to be working. But anyways, I'm going to keep going. I used to go to Adoration every single day for at least an hour.
I haven't received Communion in a while. Honestly, I am not sure if I have ever received one worthy Communion. I mean I guess you can't really be worthy. But I feel like every time I have received it unworthily, as condemned by St. Paul, and eating and drinking myself to everlasting damnation.
