Power of Catholic Sacraments

Conquering Lust in the Eucharist

I was sexually abused as a young person while still looking for and trying to find my roles as a person. This helped set me on the path of poisoned sexuality as the main purpose of life.

Then I had impure friends who increased my temptations to impure sexuality.

Also my abuser was male, so I fought to be heterosexual, abusing my girl friends and chasing pornography.

This lead me into a drug abuse lifestyle where sex was easier to find.

Of course, now I suffer with sexual transmitted diseases and drug passed diseases, this in part so I can warn you about the horrors of uncontrolled sexuality.

For 20 years I struggled to leave this life style completely seeking purity in many churches. I stayed married and didn’t as often fall but was tormented. Then finally it happened when I met Christ in the Eucharist. Then what a miracle it was as I finally found healing for a while. Now I make a week without Lust overcoming me and so every week I need help. With confession and then weekly receiving the power of the Eucharist, I continue in Christ’s healing.

Christ does give us the power of life by coming to us in the Eucharist and truly helps us to overcome the world!
