St. Joseph’s Workshop with Father Matthew Spencer, November 28, 2018

On today’s show:

  • Father discusses a sensitive topic: Pornography. The message the world give is that it’s fine, if no one else seems to be immediately hurt.  Father talks about the organization “Fight the New Drug”. They are not preaching a religious message. The porn industry gets more clips than Netflix amazon and twitter. The largest group of internet porn consumers is from 12 years old to 18 years old. “Fight the New Drug” talks about the effects the brain the heart and the world.
  • Pornography affects people more than we may think. Father explains his experience as a priest, when people come to the realization of the negative effects porn has in their lives. Pornography does kill love and it affects people and their brain. Pornography is not only wrong because of all of the effect the real reason is it leads us to treat people as objects.
  • Father talks about Hollywood, and how hard it is to hold fast to their Catholic values. Angelo Labutti was sharing his views with his co-workers and he was persecuted and made fun of. Father discusses the consecration of California to the blessed mother. Father says let’s consecrate ourselves as well.
  • A fascinating way to describe our faith as “The Way”. It describes how you and I are following Jesus.  It is not difficult to look around the world to find people who are claiming to spread the message or Jesus but are not. Father brings this up because they are powerful things to reflect on, it is in our hands to be discerning.
