Hello. I’m a first time poster here so I’m extremely sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I wanted to ask for advice with an issue that just came up. I want to first start off by saying that I have been a terrible Catholic. I pray at home but don’t go to church. I’ve felt terrible about this for years but, this leads into the subject.
Stupidly years ago I created an account on a pornography page and actually posted nude pictures of myself on the site. I recently have gotten into a relationship and in a moment of sharing information, I told my significant other about this page. It was still active but I hadn’t used it in a long time. They were upset when they found out and had told me that they were shocked that I could stoop to such a low level and aren’t sure they can continue moving into the direction of a relationship. They’re right. I completely had turned away from any sort of morality in darkness of loneliness and a desperation to seek validation. I am extremely remorseful and saddened by what I have done.
I’ve prayed the rosary and attended and online mass this morning. I’m mortified that I may have completely destroyed any chance with this relationship that I may have had and I want to pray for forgiveness of God and this person.
I guess what I’m asking is, what should I do? I’m going to schedule a confession with the local priest. I know going back to God is going to be the way for me to become the man I should be, serving him. I want to ask for forgiveness of God and this person and for anyone reading this to please pray for me. I was such a weak person and I can’t believe what I have done. Can anyone please help me?
